Simplified Employee Pension (SEP)

If you are self-employed or an employer, a SEP is a retirement planning solution that uses IRAs as the investment vehicle for both you and your employees.

  • A SEP plan allows employers to contribute to traditional IRAs (SEP-IRAs) set up for employees. A business of any size, even self-employed individuals, can establish a SEP*
  • Contributions can be up to 25% of each employee's compensation - subject to IRS limits
  • Interest earned is tax-deferred and contributions are tax-deductible*

*The maximum amount of compensation or earned income used in determining contributions for any employee is subject to compensation limits set by the IRS. There can be a substantial penalty for early withdrawal. Consult with your tax advisor about your specific situation. Other restriction's may apply.
