Nonqualified deferred compensation is a well-established and popular vehicle for tax-deferred investing and retirement savings. Participants can set aside much more pre-tax income than they can with qualified plans, such as a 401(k).
Companies usually finance plans and sometimes match a participant's deferred amounts. The use of a rabbi trust can help to protect participants' distributions.
