Retirement Plans for Business Owners

Business owners today face an increasing need to provide a retirement benefit for themselves and their employees. Retirement plans not only assist clients in fulfilling their dreams of reaching financial independence sooner, but also provides significant tax advantages.


Designing the right retirement plan is a crucial part of an integrated financial strategy. Prototype plans that are available to the masses have design limitations that can potentially prevent you from achieving your goals. We create customized plans that can maximize your savings, and imporve effeciency while reducung costs. SWC helps you identify solutions that make the most sense for your business. We utilize case designs that may incorporate IRS Safe Harbor rules, or more sophisticated solutions such as new comparability testing, multi-plan integrated benefits testing, or even a Cash Balance Plan.

We work with highly experienced pension professionals, actuaries, and legal counsel with experience with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). These resources provides business onwers with greater knowledge of tax laws created by the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act (EGTRRA) which can provide for increased pre-tax contributions than available for plans such as Profit-Sharing and 401(k) plans.
