A 47-year old physician, had a medical practice with a retirement plan being funded with $70,000 per year. $28,000 was allocated to the doctor and the rest allocated to his employees. The doctor wanted to modify the focus of the plan to fulfill his personal interests. Maurice Kassimir & Associates, P.C. worked with actuaries to design a new defined benefit plan which increased annual contributions to $218,000. $205,000 was allocated to the doctor (instead of $28,000), and $13,000 to the employees (instead of $42,000). In addition, the doctor was able to purchase through the defined benefit plan using pre-tax dollars a $7.1 million permanent life insurance policy with an annual premium of $47,000.
