More Information

This individual retirement account plan permits an employer to contribute up to 15% of an employee's gross compensation each year, or $30,000, whichever is less. Contributions may be invested into an IRA, a savings passbook IRA, or Certificate of Deposit IRA. All eligible employees must be covered by the plan.

The SEP may be used by any sole proprietor, partnership, or corporation. A sole proprietor with no employees may also have a SEP for himself or herself. In this case, the contribution is based on net income of the business, rather than gross income.
