Employees properly excluded under a plan’s eligibility may nevertheless have to be counted for purposes of the Code’s nondiscrimination tests. Excluding too many employees
could cause the plan to fail one or more of these tests. Many nondiscrimination issues can be avoided through plan design. SABC performs Eligibility Test, in which IRS requires
the plans eligibility be fair, consistent, and reasonable. Some employees may be excluded (on a uniform basis) because of their age, limited services, etc. SABC performs the
Utilization test, (sometimes called the concentration or contributions and benefits tests) where comparable benefits are utilized by a fair number of employees at all compensation levels and in all positions. This test includes the Key Employee Concentration Test and the Owner’s Test (To insure that Keys do not receive more than 25% of the total benefits under Code 125 plan) The Ownership and Key Test does not apply to collectively bargained plans, or officers or employees of governmental entities, but the highly compensated test does.
