Solo 401k Provider for RIAs

QUESTION:

We are a wealth planning firm in Houston and in researching after-tax solo 401k plans we ran across your website. Schwab, Fidelity, TD etc. plan docs don’t allow for after-tax contributions to solo 401k plans. Do you all ever collaborate with RIAs?  Can you all handle the plan doc and administration while the account sits at a custodian like Schwab etc.?  Many thanks in advance!

ANSWER:

In short, we can easily do what you want to do.

We certainly work with advisors and the accounts can be at any of the firms that you mention.

We will take care of not only being the solo 401k plan provider who offers a solo 401k plan that can hold voluntary after-tax contributions but also roth and pretax solo 401k contributions. We also handle the reporting for the in-plan conversion or direct rollover to the Roth IRA.

Following is a list of the ongoing solo 401k compliance support that we provide.

  • Year 2020 Required IRS Plan Update.
  • Responding to IRS Compliance Checks-the IRS routinely reviews solo 401(k) plans for compliance with reporting and the solo 401(k) plan rules.
