Retirement Plans 
Permanente Physicians Retirement Plan

The Permanente Physicians Retirement Plan (PPRP) is a defined benefit plan. The base retirement benefit provides a monthly income for life beginning at age 65, based on years of credited service and the annual average of the highest three years of compensation in the last 10 years. 

The formula is 2.25% x years of credited service up to 20 years x 8/9 of the average annual compensation, plus 1.125% x years of credited service over 20 years x 8/9 of the average annual compensation. The IRS limits dollar amounts that can be paid annually from a defined benefit plan. Benefits in excess of legal limits for qualified retirement plans are currently paid under the non-qualified Supplemental Employee Retirement Plan.

One hundred percent vesting occurs upon completion of five years of service. An annual contribution is made by HPMG to the Permanente Physicians Retirement Plan. 
 Supplemental Employee Retirement Plan 
 If a physician's salary exceeds the IRS limits recognized by a defined benefit plan, the benefit under the PPRP may be limited. The benefit under the Supplemental Employee Retirement Plan (SERP) is calculated as the difference between the benefit under the PPRP with IRS limits and the PPRP benefit without such limitations. 
Savings Plans 
 Profit Sharing and Money Purchase Pension Plans

  These plans provide a means for participants to accumulate retirement benefits through tax-deferred contributions. The funds are professionally managed in a variety of stocks, bonds, T-bills, and money market funds, determined by the physician's election. The physician may elect to make a salary-deferral contribution to the Profit Sharing Plan upon date of hire. Upon completion of two years of service, the physician is eligible for employer contributions to the Profit Sharing and Money Purchase Pension Plans. The physician may borrow up to 50% of his or her account funds to a maximum of $50,000.

This seems to be the Kaiser Traditional Plan 

KAISER FOUNDATION HOSPITALS 
A network of Hospitals run by Kaiser Foundation Health Plan.

I haven't a clue what this actually is or does and have found nothing on it except it's listing as a business.

This looks just like another to sucker in the public that has no knowledge of this company.  Too bad false advertising isn't illegal internationally.  They are just marketing themselves to other countries that are trying to find solutions for their problems.  

KAISER PERMANENTE VENTURES 
A Dual Purpose Funding Venture - I have to wonder if this also is part of the Permanente deferred compensation agreement and is also tax free. 
Kaiser Permanente Ventures is the corporate venturing arm of Kaiser Permanente and leverages Kaiser's resources and health care experience to selectively invest in entrepreneurial companies.
