San Ramon 401(k) Advisors
Only about 24% of businesses with less than 100 employees offer a 401(k) plan, according to TK. This means a large number of Americans are not likely to be as prepared financially for retirement as those who have access to a retirement plan. And while there are many sound reasons for small businesses to start a retirement plan, there are also questions surrounding 401ks for smaller companies.
Can I offer a 401(k) plan if I only have a few employees?
Yes! No business – not even a self-employed business – is too small for a retirement plan. The fact is 401(k) plans offer big benefits no matter the size of the business. High contribution limits, tax benefits, emergency access to funds through a loan, Roth 401(k) options, and other opportunities and benefits can make a big difference for even the smallest business.
Is it still worthwhile to offer a plan even though I can’t afford to match contributions?
Yes! Matching is actually not required by businesses offering a 401(k) plan, and the business (and their employees) can still reap many benefits without a match. An employer is not required to contribute a penny to employees’ accounts. Still, there are many mutually beneficial reasons for owners to offer a match or profit sharing to their employees.
Aren't the management fees expensive?
No! At Prosperity, we specialize in servicing small businesses and keeping fees under control often keeping investment expenses under one percent.
