- cash balance scheme
A pension scheme in which risk is shared between the sponsoring employee and the member. Typically, members may receive fixed amounts for each year of service, calculated as a percentage of their pensionable salary. At retirement, they must convert the total cash fund to an annuity. In other words, the employee must bear the mortality risk.
