REVERSE DISCRIMINATION OF QUALIFIED RETIREMENT PLANS

Did You Know That… 

Qualified Retirement Plans Tend to Discriminate AGAINST the Highly Compensated? 

The restrictions placed on qualified retirement plans strictly limit the size of the benefits that can be accrued for highly-compensated employees. When compared to the benefits provided to lower-paid employees, these limitations can produce a “reverse discrimination” effect that results in qualified retirement plans replacing an inadequate percentage of an owner’s or key employee’s pre-retirement income. 

Eligible compensation that can be considered in applying these benefit or contribution limitations is capped at $275,000 in 2018 (as adjusted for inflation). 

There is, however, a solution to the inadequacy of qualified retirement plan benefits for owners and key employees…a selective executive benefit plan can be used to counter …

What if #Q, #QAnon and #TheGreatAwakening are Real?

What if #Q, #QAnon and #TheGreatAwakening are Real?

By this point you may have heard Q mentioned online, whether in conservative circles or somewhere in your social media feed.  You likely didn’t pay too much attention to it, as many of us have known for a long time that nefarious, shady and corrupt elements exist within our government.  

If you’ve looked into anything regarding The Clinton Foundation you probably made a reasonable guess that she had been likely selling her presidency since her time at the State Department, but perhaps you didn’t go much further down the rabbit hole to see exactly who she was selling favors to, nor what those favors were.

How the Opiate Crisis Disproportionately Impacts the Veterans’ Community

America’s opiate crisis has reached epic proportions. Reuters has recently reported that more Americans have been killed by opiate drug abuse than have been killed in the Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan wars combined. It extends far beyond those typically afflicted by drug abuse, digging deep into middle class America. In fact, it has become so widespread that it has even forced the Department of Transportation to update DOT drug testing regulations for 2018. New Department of Transportation regulations now require DOT drug testing for an additional four semi-synthetic opioids that are often abused, including oxymorphone, oxycodone, hydromorphone, and hydrocodone.

Unfortunately this crisis disproportionately impacts the veterans’ community, with federal data showing that veterans are twice as likely to die

The Rush to Work Out

The crowd grows bigger, as a combination of veterans, service members, first responders and civilians come together to accomplish the mission. It is not going to be easy but in the end everyone will have a stronger bond. A bond of sweat, tears and aching muscles on this special occasion.

They start with a one mile run, then move on to 100 pullups, 200 pushups, 300 squats and finish strong with another one mile run for good measure. The more experienced can choose to do all of this with a 20lbs vest on, for others just finishing will be an accomplishment.

No matter how you choose to do the work out, it is not about time, but rather the bond …
