Retirement Plan Options 

401(k) Plan

A 401(k) plan is a type of defined contribution plan that allows employee salary deferrals and/or employer contributions.

Simple 401(k) Plan

This plan is a type of defined contribution plan that is available to small business owners with 100 or fewer employees. Under a SIMPLE 401(k) Plan, an employee can elect to defer some compensation. Unlike a standard 401(k) plan, the employer  must make: (1) a matching contribution up to 3% of each employee's pay, or (2) a non-elective contribution of 2% of each eligible employee's pay.

Simplified Employee Pensions (SEPs)

Simplified Employee Pensions (SEPs) provide an easy way for employers to make contributions to a retirement plan for their employees. Instead of setting up a profit-sharing or money purchase plan with a trust, employers can adopt a SEP agreement and make contributions directly to an individual retirement account or an individual retirement annuity created for each eligible employee.


A SIMPLE IRA plan allows some small employers (including self-employed individuals) to set up a tax-favored retirement plan for their employees' benefit. This plan is a written, salary reduction agreement that allows employers to contribute salary reductions to a SIMPLE IRA on behalf of eligible employees.
