Qualified pension or other employee benefit where responsibility rests with an employer rather than an insurer. A trust fund plan, where assets are deposited with and invested by a trustee, is the most common self-administered plan. A trust agreement governs the plan administration and retirees are paid benefits from the trust or the trustee buys annuities for them. The self-administered, or trust fund plan, contrasts with the insured (insurance company) pension plan.
