Paula Calimafde Provides Commentary for PLANSPONSOR Article on New Comparability Plans

Paula Calimafde provided commentary for an article titled: "New Comparability Plans Allow the Employer to Reward Older Employees and Owners," which was published on PLANSPONSOR.com on July 26, 2017.

"Employers will typically use cross-tested plans to reward employees for their longevity or to help older workers who have less time to accumulate assets, says Paula Calimafde, a partner with Paley Rothman in Bethesda, Maryland. “It is a way for the company to fine tune the plan to use it as a retention tool to keep the employees it feels are important to the success of the company,” she says. These plans also have a “last day of service requirement,” so that if an employee moved over into another category, the employer can change their contribution, she says."
