Target Benefit Pl

Definition of "Target benefit pl"

Type of pension in which benefits may vary depending on the investment performance of the pension plan assets. Contributions are made to fund a target benefit, such as 35% of compensation, using acceptable mortality and interest rate assumptions. Funds are invested wholly or partially in such vehicles as variable annuities or mutual funds, and benefits may exceed or fall below target levels depending on investment performance. Target plans are subject to the same annual contribution limits for individual participants as a money purchase plan.
