One thing I like about a cash balance plan is they are more portable than the traditional defined benefit plan. I now have money in an IRA from 2 cash balance plans, that I wouldn't have available if the company hadn't made the switch.

The ex-employers don't have to keep track of me until I retire, and I have the luxury of investing my own money.
