Retirement Plans

It is our philosophy that a company sponsored Retirement Plan should serve two purposes –

  1. Be a tax shelter that helps the owner and a company’s employees best save for their retirement
  2. Provide a hiring tool that helps smaller employers attract and retain quality employee that might be attracted to the benefits usually only offered by larger firms.

With these goals in mind, PPG Retirement Plan Services works with you to help you design the most cost effective, yet beneficial, plan design for your firm. We have a wide variety in choices of plan designs along with choices of the features and options within each plan:

  • Traditional 401(k) Plans
  • Safe Harbor 401(k) Plans
  • Roth 401(k) Plans
  • Individual 401(k) Plans
  • Traditional Profit Sharing Plans
  • Integrated Profit Sharing Plans
  • Age-Weighted Profit Sharing Plans
  • Points System Profit Sharing Plan
  • New Comparability Profit Sharing Plans

  • Target Benefit Pension Plans
  • Cash Balance Pension Plans
  • Defined Benefit Plans
  • Non-Profit Company 403(b) Plans
