Self Employed 401k Plans

BUSINESS AND CORPORATE ACCOUNTS
Employer-sponsored retirement plans can be a great source of income when you retire. And, if your employer offers matching funds, it is like getting free money. In this section, learn about the different retirement plans and how to maximize your benefits.

Retirement plans generally fall into two categories: defined benefit plans and defined contribution plans.

A defined benefit plan promises you a specified monthly benefit at retirement. The benefit may be a fixed dollar amount or may depend on a plan formula that considers factors such as salary and years of service.

Defined benefit plans also are known as pension plans. Employers sponsor defined benefit plans and typically hire investment managers to make investment choices. The employer shoulders the investment risks.

A defined contribution plan, such as a 401(k) plan, does not promise you a specific payment upon retirement. In these plans, you or your employer (or both) contribute to your individual account under the plan, sometimes at a set rate, such as 5% of your annual salary.

In a defined contribution plan, the employee shoulders the investment risks, and the value of the account will fluctuate due to changes in the value of the investments. Upon retirement, you receive the balance in your account, which depends on contributions plus or minus investment gains or losses.

Retirement Planning

Planning for your retirement goes beyond your future financial needs. Other important factors include your health and well-being, emotional readiness, lifestyle, and personal preferences, all of which require careful planning. Mostly everyone dreams of a comfortable, secure, and meaningful retirement. This requires a stable income stream, less exposure to financial risks, and being prepared for the unexpected. We suggest you begin by envisioning what these factors will look like when you retire.
