SEP IRA

A Simplified Employee Pension plan (SEP) lets you build retirement savings for your employees and yourself, while gaining tax advantages for your business.

  • Only the employer makes contributions, up to the lesser of 25% of an employee’s compensation or $49,000
  • Contributions are tax-deductible for the business. Your business may also qualify for a tax credit to cover some of the plan’s low start-up costs.
  • Contributions go into a traditional IRA for each employee and the employer
  • Account earnings grow tax-deferred
  • You decide whether and how much to contribute each year. The contribution rate must be uniform for all employees.
  • Self-employed? You can contribute to a SEP IRA on your own behalf.

Self-directed SEP IRAs offer plan participants a variety of investment choices, including stocks, bonds and mutual funds. The employer makes the contribution, and the employee chooses how the funds will be invested.
