Simplified Employee Pension (SEP)



Looking for an easy, low-cost retirement plan?  Why not consider a SEP? 

Merchants State Bank offers SEP plans with no annual cost to the employer or employee.  SEPs can provide a significant source of income at retirement by allowing employers to set aside money in retirement accounts for themselves and their employees.   Under a SEP, an employer contributes directly to traditional IRAs (SEP-IRAs) for all employees (including the employer).  A SEP does not have the start-up and operating costs of a conventional retirement plan and allows for a contribution of up to 25 percent of each employee's pay, subject to annual limits.  Other advantages of a SEP include the following benefits:

  • Contributions to a SEP are tax deductible, and your business pays no taxes on the earnings.
  • You are not locked into making contributions every year.  You decide whether and how much to contribute each year.
  • Generally, you don't file documents with the government.  Merchants State Bank files tax forms for you.
  • Sole proprietors, partnerships, and corporations, including S Corporations, can set up SEPs.

Contact Merchants State Bank today to learn more about the tax advantages of SEP plans! See our current rates.  Start saving today!
