Simplified Employee Pension (SEP)
A Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) plan provides business owners with a simplified method to contribute toward their employees' retirement as well as their own retirement savings. Contributions are made to an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) set up for each plan participant (a SEP IRA).
A SEP IRA account is a Traditional IRA and follows the same investment, distribution, and rollover rules as Traditional IRAs.
Coverdell Education Savings Account
A Coverdell Education Savings Account is designed to assist families in saving for a child's educational expenses. While more than one ESA can be set up for a single child, the total maximum contribution per year for any one child is $2,000. Formerly called an Education IRA, the ESA allows families to increase investment earnings through tax-deferral as long as the funds are used for educational purposes.
