Why Pensions Aren’t Dead: Defined Benefit Retirement Plans Gain Fans

I want to interview experts on retirement, benefits and taxes as well as owners and managers of small and medium-sized businesses for an article discussing how last year’s tax plan encourages business owners to consider old-fashioned defined benefit plans to help them take advantage of the new Qualified Business Income deduction that is part of the 2017 tax overhaul. I’ll ask about benefits, costs, limits, risks, etc. of defined benefit plans in the new tax environment. Twenty-minute telephone interviews will take place anytime between now and close of business Central time on Tuesday, May 8.
