CHARLOTTE, NC / ACCESSWIRE / August 7, 2020 / When most investors think about 401(k) plans, they probably picture something through work. But there are other types of 401(k) plans, and they can be even more beneficial for retirement-depending on an individual's circumstances. That's why American IRA, a Self-Directed IRA administration firm based in Asheville, NC, recently posted a comprehensive guide to the Self-Directed Solo 401(k), a unique retirement plan with some interesting characteristics.
Traditional investors in the 401(k) may recognize some of these characteristics. But a Solo 401(k) is slightly different, built for the self-employed and individuals such as sole proprietors. This type of plan makes it possible for the self-employed to make aggressive retirement investments-thanks to the high contribution limits of the 401(k)-and save more for retirement. The post explained that a 401(k) plan like this would allow for deductible contributions, which helps individuals save money while they invest.
The post went on to detail the specific contribution limits of the Self-Directed Solo 401(k), as well as explaining how Self-Directing works. These contribution limits are a major attractor for many investors, especially given the limitations of investing with a Roth IRA or a Self-Directed Roth IRA, wherein investors will only be able to contribute small amounts, compared to the potential of a 401(k).
"Aggressive investors always want to know how they can improve their contribution limits," said Jim Hitt, CEO of American IRA. "And the truth is, there's nothing you can do about it except follow the rules established by the federal government. But you can still strategically select your IRA plans-including a Self-Directed Solo 401(k)-to maximize your ability to save and invest. And that starts with knowing what these accounts are all about."
American IRA, LLC, was established in 2004 by Jim Hitt, CEO in Asheville, NC.
