    In a DC (e.g., 401k), the annual contributions into the retirement fund are known/determined but the final payouts are based on investment performance
    In a DB (traditional, still common but declining share; common for public employees, bigCo), the future payouts at retirement are promised, so the plan must be funded in anticipation
    In a DC, employees bear risk; in a DB, sponsor bears risk.

    this is a huge topic, here are intros:
