definition

An employer-sponsored, tax-advantaged, deferred compensation retirement plan. Under the rules that govern these accounts, plan participants can deposit deferred income into an employer-administered account. The plan administrator determines what latitude the account-holder has in making his or her own investment decisions, which in some cases are limited to employer-approved funds.
