Cash-based defined benefit plans. The Second Circuits, joining the other circuits that have considered the issue, has held that cash-based defined benefit plans do not inherently result in age-based reduction in the rate of benefit accrual and do not violate ERISA. The Court noted that there had been some confusion among the district courts of the Second Circuit as to law on this issue.

The decision in Hirt v. The Equitable Retirement Plan for Employees, Managers and Agents can be found here.
