Help with frozen defined benefit plan

by on
in Admin Pro Forum

Question: The company I work for needs to freeze their defined benefit plan due to underfunding and expense of the plan. As the HR person I would like some insight from others who may have experience with such a matter. Also I would like suggestions on other retirement plans to consider that would supplement the frozen accrued benefits of defined benefit plans, etc. ( I work for a small bank with about 30 employees.)  --  Blue Eyes
