Traditional IRA vs. Roth IRA

Which option is best for you? To help you understand the differences between these types of accounts, please download our comparison chart. 

SEP IRA

A SEP (Simplified Employee Pension) IRA allows employers to contribute to an eligible employee’s Traditional IRA. All types of employers can use a SEP IRA to contribute to an employee. These contributions are tax deductible for the employer and taxpayers may contribute 25% up to $54,000 (whichever is less) in 2017. 2017 participants may make contributions of $5,500 or $6,500 for any individuals over 50.
