employees and their dependents, or for a class or classes of his
employees, or for a class or classes of such employees and their
dependents, including any amount paid by an employer for insurance or
annuities, or into a fund, to provide for any such payment, on account
of retirement, or sickness or accident disability, or medical or
hospitalization expenses in connection with sickness or accident
disability, or death.

beneficiary from or to a trust described in section four hundred one (a)
of the federal internal revenue code which is exempt from tax under

unless such payment is made to an employee of the trust as remuneration
for services rendered as such employee and not as a beneficiary of the
trust, or under or to an annuity plan which, at the time of such
payment, meets the requirements of section four hundred one (a) (3),
(4), (5), and (6) of such code.

service not in the course of the employer's trade or business.
