Defined benefit plan

HR Glossary

Defined benefit plan

A superannuation scheme in which the employer pays a set amount at the end of an employee’s tenure, based on their age, length of service, and average salary during work. This is distinct from an accumulation plan which provides a retirement payout based on investments (superannuation contributions) and investment returns.
