Frequently Asked Questions
What are the requirements of a Safe Harbor plan?
- A matching contribution must equal at least 4% of compensation by using either: the basic formula or enhanced formula. Basic formula 100% of the first 3% of compensation plus 50% of the next 2% of compensation Or Enhanced formula 100% of the first 4% of compensation Elective contributions more than 6% cannot be matched. This does not mean that the match amount cannot exceed 6% of compensation only that deferrals more than 6% cannot be matched. So, a safe harbor matching contribution equal to 200% of 5% is allowed.
- A non‐elective contribution (profit sharing contribution) that equals at least 3% of the employee’s eligible compensation for the plan year. A contribution greater than 3% is allowed.
