Deferred Compensation

Course Number: LAW 7632 Credits: 2

This course provides an overview of the retirement support systems that are available in the United States: Social Security covers all workers, while traditional pensions and employment-based savings programs receive tax subsidies from the federal government but cover only a fraction of workers.  Deferred Compensation students learn the basics of all of these programs, which includes debunking some persistent myths about them, in particular regarding Social Security.
