401(a) Profit-Sharing Plan
401(a) plan

Mutual of America makes available 401(a) Profit-Sharing retirement plans to governmental, for-profit and not-for-profit employers.


Mutual of America's 401(a) Profit-Sharing plan, also called a discretionary plan, is similar to a money purchase pension plan in that the amount of an employee's retirement benefit depends on the amount in an individual employee's account at retirement. The distinguishing feature of this plan, however, is that the employer is not obligated to make contributions each year, but there must be recurring and substantial contributions.

Mutual of America's group and individual retirement products are variable annuity contracts and are suitable for long-term investing, particularly for retirement savings. The value of a variable annuity contract will fluctuate depending on the performance of the Separate Account investment funds you choose. Upon redemption, you could receive more or less than the principal amount invested. A variable annuity contract provides no additional tax-deferred treatment of benefits beyond the treatment provided to any qualified retirement plan or IRA by applicable tax law. You should carefully consider a variable annuity contract's other features before making a decision.
