  Activity 6: Retirement Plan 

Philpot Chemicals is contemplating the introduction of a retirement plan. The company has been in business for six years, has 250 employees, and has found a market niche that promises to provide them with great opportunities for growth over the next several years. They have developed an average benefits package for a firm of their size, but know that having a retirement plan would complete their benefit offerings and help them to attract new talent. The Executive Committee assigned with the task has been discussing the advantages and disadvantages of several types of retirement plans. They have asked you to assist them in making a final decision. Discuss in detail the following questions.
