TiggerToo,

Not neant to be critical, but how do you know that this is not a defined benefit plan?

Because a defined benefit plan is one qualified under IRS rules for certain tax benefits, and a 457 plan is not. Also, a 401k is a defined contribution plan. A 457 plan is a nonqualified plan. By definition it can't be a defined benefit plan.
