Terminating the plan

Companies can discontinue a nonqualified deferred compensation plan and pay out benefits. However, to do this, the company must satisfy numerous conditions and needs to follow the Section 409A requirements on when and how a plan termination can and cannot happen (see an FAQ elsewhere on this website). Compare to freezing the plan.
