Small Business "k"

Helping your employees achieve financial security, no matter where they're starting from.

As an employer, you want to provide a means for your employees to have financially secure futures. Unfortunately, the administration and costs of most retirement plans may have prevented you from offering a retirement plan for them.

There may be a solution – the Small Business “k” – a 401(k) designed especially for small businesses.

Employer Advantages of the Small Business “k” Plan
  • Affordable retirement benefit
  • Convenient, low-maintenance plan
  • Higher elective deferral limits than a SIMPLE IRA
  • Employer contributions are tax deductible
Employee Advantages of the Small Business “k” Plan
  • Tax-deferred earnings
  • Employer contributions are required
  • High contribution limits
Is it right for you?

The Small Business “k” uniquely addresses the needs of the small business owner. It might be a good choice for:

  • Businesses with 5-20 employees (must have at least 5 employees)
  • Individuals who currently have a solo 401(k) but find they need to hire one or more employees
  • Start-up plans
  • Plans with less than $500,000 in assets
