CHICAGO REGIONAL COUNCIL OF CARPENTERS PENSION FUND is a DEFINED BENEFIT PLAN. A defined benefit plan is traditionally referred to as a "pension plan." This type of plan typically provides participants with a monthly retirement benefit upon reaching a specific age for either a specific period of time, or for the Participant’s lifetime, depending upon the form of benefits offered by the plan and selected by the Participant. Benefits paid at the time of retirement are calculated using a formula based upon years of "credited service" and the Participant’s compensation information. Benefits are generally payable to a participant upon reaching "normal retirement age" for the remainder of the Participant's lifetime. Benefits accumulated under defined benefit plans are often referred to as "accrued benefits". It is rare, but some plans may allow for a lump sum payment of benefits instead of a monthly payment. The type of benefits available may vary significantly from plan to plan.

With this type of plan, the Alternate Payee is usually not awarded a lump sum cash payment from the plan. Rather, the Alternate Payee’s award is typically made in terms of a monthly benefit payable for either the lifetime of the Participant (a "shared payment") or the lifetime of the Alternate Payee (a "separate interest"). When dividing a defined benefit plan, it is critical to know the types of benefits available under the terms of the applicable plan. Additionally, the retirement of the Participant prior to the entry of a QDRO will typically limit the Alternate Payee to receiving only a portion of the Participant’s benefits based upon the election made at the Participant’s benefit commencement. This includes beneficiary designations and "surviving spouse" benefits.

Features of the CHICAGO REGIONAL COUNCIL OF CARPENTERS PENSION FUND may include:

  • Benefits accrued under this Plan are primarily “flat dollar” (includes dollars per year of service)
CHICAGO REGIONAL COUNCIL OF CARPENTERS PENSION FUND is a DEFINED CONTRIBUTION PLAN. Typically, a Company Sponsor (Employer) of this type of plan creates an account for every individual Participant. Regular contributions are then made by the Employer, the Participant, or both. Examples of this plan type are Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), Profit-Sharing Plans, 401(a), Savings Plans and 401(k).

A division of this type of account must be done by way of a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO). When dividing a defined contribution plan, the Alternate Payee is typically awarded a portion of the Participant's account balance as of a specific date (the "Valuation Date" or "Assignment Date"). In most cases, the Alternate Payee’s portion must be expressed as either a specific dollar amount, or as a percentage of the account. Most defined contribution plans do not permit an award to be expressed as "marital coverture formula", such as: "50% of the amount accrued from the date of marriage to the date of separation or divorce". With a few exceptions, a QDRO containing a marital coverture formula for division of a defined contribution account will likely be rejected by the appropriate Plan Administrator.

Once a QDRO is approved, the Plan Administrator will establish a separate account for the Alternate Payee. If permitted by the terms of the plan, the Alternate Payee may have the opportunity to utilize investment options that are available for other plan participants. This type of plan generally allows an Alternate Payee to receive an immediate lump sum distribution (or withdrawal) upon approval of a QDRO. Alternatively, the Alternate Payee may choose to transfer the awarded funds to another tax deferred account of their choice - for example, to an IRA (Individual Retirement Account). It is critical that the Alternate Payee consult with a tax professional before making any transfers or withdrawals in order to be fully informed as to any potential tax consequences arising from either the nature or timing of the withdrawal or transfer.

  • This Plan permits Participants to direct the investment of his or her retirement accounts.
