DEFINED CONTRIBUTION is a pension design that defines the amount of contributions, usually a percentage of salary. The benefits payable at retirement depend on factors such as future investment return and annuity rate at retirement. If a plan is registered for tax purposes, the maximum contribution amount (usually a percentage of earnings or income up to a dollar limit) is defined by tax regulations.

NO-LOAD FUND is a mutual fund sold directly to investors without commissions paid to salesmen or other up-front costs. Some funds charge surrender fees, although a pure no-load fund has no sales, exit or marketing fees.
