Linked plan

A nonqualified deferred compensation plan connected to a qualified retirement plan or some other compensation arrangement. The deferrals and payouts can be linked in some way, and there may be offsets on the NQDC distributions for what the qualified plans cover. The Section 409A rules apply, particularly when you cannot defer income into the NQDC plan until you have made the maximum deferral possible under the qualified 401(k).
