7th Annual Self Directed Solo 401(k) Special
November 1st – December 1st
4 Key Points to Consider When Using a Solo 401(k)
1. Over $50k in Annual Contributions
A solo(k) can receive over $50K annually in new contributions and is an optimal savings tool for self-employed persons.
2. Self-Directed and Self-Trustee
The solo 401(k) is self-directed and you, as the business owner, serve as trustee and will have checkbook control of your own solo(k) bank checking account.
3. Must be Self-Employed with No Employees
In order to qualify for a solo(k) you must be self-employed with no other full-time employees.
4. Roth & Traditional Accounts
A solo 401(k) can have both Roth and Traditional accounts and the business owner’s spouse may also have accounts if they also work in the business.
Step 1 – The Set-Up
Express Service Set-Up
What it Includes:
- The Self Directed Solo 401(k) Set-Up.
- All the Documents needed in a Plan Document Binder.
- A great option for those who know what they are doing.
Step 2 – Choose a Maintenance Plan
A Maintenance Plan is required with (any) 401k plan in the country. This is because there are regular ‘plan updates’ required by the IRS and DOL, and protocol that needs to be followed in managing and operating a 401k. We try to keep the cost affordable and give you 2 options to chose from.
Annual Compliance Plan (ACP)

“This plan is for those clients that know what they are doing and just want the bare minimum of service required by the IRS or DOL”
