BRT S02 EP 35 (82) 8-29-21

Topic: Ted Benna, the Father of the 401k Covers It All, History, pensions, Fees & More

Guests: Ted Benna, Benna 401K

http://benna401k.com

Ted Benna, Father of the 401K, has worked in pension and retirement benefits industry for 60 years, and literally wrote the book on the 401K. He was a pioneer in the early 80s in designing the early 401K Plans, and then getting them approved by the IRS to be the model still used today.

Books: 

401K Forty Years Later (2018) – History of the 401K

401K & IRA for Dummies Updated Version (2021)

 

What We Learned This Week

  • History of the 401K
  • Pension, Thrift Plans & Mutual Funds
  • Golden Handcuffs - stuck with a Co. 
  • ERISA & Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp.
  • Tax Code 1978 created the section for the 401K

 

 

Notes:

History of the 401K – from inception to now a $10 Trillion Industry

What Companies used to offer employees – Pensions, Thrift Plans, etc

How the Good Old days were not so Golden as Pension Plans were often underfunded

Golden Handcuffs – had to stay at a company 30 years before your were eligible for the pension

ERISA 1974 – why it was created, and how it killed off Pension Plans

PGBC - Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. – what it does to protect your Pension (sort of) 

Tax Code 1978 created the section for the 401K

How Ted Benna created the model for what is now the modern day 401K Plan – employees defer part of their salary, plus Employers give a partial match

Mutual Fund industry exploded in the late 80s to early 90s with retirement plans and 401Ks

Social Security – you get taxed on that too

401K Fees – hidden and costly fees of 2 – 3%

 

Ted tells you options for small business owners to setup retirement funds that are easier than 401ks (less paperwork) and have minimal fees (.5 %).
