Differences between employee benefit plan and welfare plan

What is the difference between an employee benefit pension plan and a welfare plan?

ERISA divides employee benefit plans into "employee pension benefit plans" and "welfare plans." The tax advantage associated with "qualified plans" applies to employee pension benefit plans, although certain types of welfare plans also enjoy favorable federal income tax treatment.
