NFL Players Pension Red Zone – $4 Billion


It’s Super Bowl time which, for some of us, means  that the new 5500 for the Bert Bell/Pete Rozelle NFL Player Retirement Plan (EIN 13-6043636) is out and we get a better idea of how much Tom Brady really has in common with a Cleveland Iron Worker.

Interestingly enough, the NFL plan meets the objective (less than 40% funding and less than 40% active) criteria under both HR 397 and the Grassley-Alexander proposal from the prior legislative session and would qualify for a bailout were it to declare itself a red zone plan.
