Event Details

As a self-employed business owner, you have several ways to defer some of your income in a tax-advantaged manner. While Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are well-known, they have limitations for those looking to save more than $6,000 per year ($7,000 if you're 50 or older). There are several other alternatives, one of which is the Solo 401(k) -- also known as a Solo-k, Uni-k, One-Participant 401(k), or Individual 401(k),

The Solo 401(k) is a retirement plan that can maximize your savings if you're self-employed or if you're a partner in a business whose only employees are the partners and their spouses. The Solo 401(k) mimics many of the features of a larger employer-sponsored plan at a cost within the reach of most self-employed individuals.

Check with your CPA or tax advisor about whether a Solo 401(k) is a good fit for your business, and learn about it here from the perspective of an investment advisor who once advised large corporations on their 401(k) plans. If you already have a Solo 401(k), we'll discuss how to analyze its features and offerings.

We’ll discuss Traditional and Roth versions of the Solo 401(k), and compare and contrast the Solo 401(k) with the SEP (Simplified Employee Pension) IRA. We’ll also briefly explore the offerings and costs of several well-known Solo 401(k) plan providers.


Business owners who have no full-time employees other than the business owner(s) and their spouse(s), and wish to maximize their retirement savings.

The seminar is appropriate both for those wondering about opening a Solo 401(k) and for those wishing to better understand their existing Solo 401(k).

Employers with employees should attend the lunchtime seminar on Wed., Oct. 16, The SIMPLE: A simple matching retirement plan for employers with Stephen Sklar of Edward Jones.
