Deferred Compensation is defined as an agreement between an employer and an employee to withhold payments of wages, invest them on the employee's behalf, and pay them later to the employee in the form of retirement benefits. Deferred compensation eliminates the tax the employee would normally pay on their wages and can take the form of a pension, retirement plan, or employee stock option plan.

Every month, an employee expects to earn some income in the form of wages. While some take all of it home, others choose to keep a portion of it with the company's retirement savings plan. In most mid-sized companies, employers purchase an annuity, offer stock options, or some form of pension. These retirement plans are normally designed to replace 60% of your working income after 30 years with the same employer. Just like one would wish to save for the future, deferred compensation is a retirement plan that allows people to avoid the taxes associated with receiving their income right away. Most companies or employers in the USA encourage employees to subscribe to retirement plans.
