Business Retirement Plans

Considering a Retirement Plan for Your Employees?

Offering a retirement plan can make your business more competitive and help you attract top talent. Fifth Third Securities offers a variety of strategies to help meet your company's particular needs.

As a business owner, you can choose from a variety of Fifth Third Securities business retirement plans when you need a practical way to help employees save:

  • Solo and Group 401(k)

    For business owners who have employees, Fifth Third Securities can help establish and maintain a 401(k) plan. A traditional 401(k) plan allows participants to make pre-tax contributions. It offers employers flexibility and allows them discretion to make contributions, such as a matching contribution on behalf of employees. We can also assist business owners who do not have employees, with a solo 401(k) qualified retirement plan.

  • SEP (Simplified Employee Pension Plan)

    This type of plan, which is available to any size business, does not have the same start up and operating costs of a regular retirement plan. Only the employer can contribute and the employee is always 100% vested in SEP-IRA money.

  • SIMPLE (Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees)

    This is an IRA-based plan for small business owners with fewer than 100 employees who have each earned $5,000 or more in compensation during the preceding calendar year. The plan allows participants to make pre-tax contributions and can be a cost-effective alternative to a 401(k) plan.

  • Retirement Plan (Profit Sharing/Money Purchase Plans/Keogh)

    Any size business can establish a profit sharing plan, which may be appropriate for your business if cash flow is an issue because contributions are discretionary; for 2011, maximum annual contributions are the lesser of 25% of an employee's compensation or $49,000 (or more if there are catch-up contributions). A Money Purchase Plan requires the employer to make contributions according to a contribution percentage preset in the plan. If you are self-employed, we can help you set up a retirement plan for self-employed people, formerly referred to as a Keogh plan.
