What is a Solo(k)?
The Solo(k), also called the Individual 401(k), is a powerful retirement savings plan for self-employed individuals.
Who is eligible for a Solo(k)?
The Solo(k) is for owner-only businesses or owner and spouse businesses. The business can be incorporated or unincorporated, Sole proprietors, C corporations, S corporations, partnerships and LLC’s.
