A Qualified Retirement Plan is one that meets the requirements of the Internal Revenue Code, ERISA and the Department of Labor, and thus is eligible to receive certain tax and legal benefits.
For example, the plan must be for the exclusive benefit of employees or their beneficiaries, and must meet a number of general requirements such as being permanent (no planned expiration date) and must have periodic required communication of details to employees.
