Retirement Accounts & Investments

People in a meetingAdvantis Credit Union Investment Services (offered through CFS*), provides access to a variety of retirement accounts and investments for business owners and employees. Popular retirement savings options for employers include:

  • SEP IRA - The Simplified Employee Pension Individual Retirement Account (SEP IRA) allows self-employed individuals (and some business owners with employees) higher annual contribution limits than with Traditional or Roth IRAs.  A SEP IRA also offers completely discretionary and flexible annual contributions and minimal administration requirements.
  • Solo 401K - Excellent choice for business owners without employees by allowing the highest deductible annual contributions, special loan provisions, and greater flexibility in contribution amounts.
  • SIMPLE IRA - The Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees (SIMPLE) IRA works well for small business owners with employees. It features lower administration costs and allows employees to contribute part of their compensation pre-tax through an elective deferral. Employers must match on either a dollar for dollar basis up to 3% of compensation or 2% for all employees.
  • 401K - A good option for businesses with several employees that provides employer optional matching and loan provisions.
