Who: All employers interested in retirement plans (this is what we do)
What: Simple IRA’s
When: Can sign up until September 30, 2014 for new plans and fund later.
Why: Cause you are going to want to retire someday. It is never too early nor too late to start.
How Much Can an Employee Contribute:
Up to $12,000 per employee plus $2,500 if over age 50. THAT IS EMPLOYEE MONEY
How Much Must the Employer Match:
Our suggestion is the employer adds the lower of:
3% of wages or whatever employee contributes
(This is a low cost way to implement a significant employee benefit)
Employee earns $30,000 x 3% = $900 is the maximum exposure the employer must match.
If the employee puts in nothing, the employer puts in nothing.
If the employee puts in $5,000 (employee’s money), employer can only put in $900.
If the employee put in $300, the employer can only put in $300.

responsibility on your part for investment performance.
