  • Solo 401k

    A Solo 401k, also commonly referred to as an individual 401k, is designed for self-employed individuals without full-time employees. This plan enables you (and your spouse if he or she works for you) higher contribution limits. Both Roth and pre-tax salary deferrals may be permitted.


    A Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) IRA is a plan completely funded by the employer. This plan allows the employer tax-deductible contributions and any growth is tax-deferred for the employee. Contributions are flexible.


    A Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees (SIMPLE) allows both the employer and employee to contribute to employee retirement accounts with potential tax benefits for employer contributions and the ability for employees to make pre-tax contributions. This plan is intended for businesses with steady profits.
