What Is a Self-Directed 401k?

401k vs. IRA: What’s the Difference?

IRA plans are set up on an individual basis and not set-up by an employer. A 401K is set up by an employer.

What is a Solo 401k?

A Solo 401k is also known as a self-employed 401k. Full-time freelancers and self-employed individuals are not able to take advantage of a permanent employer retirement plan, so instead that can opt for a solo 401k. (Which is even better!)

What is a Self-directed IRA 401k?

All Solo 401k’s by default are also “Self Directed”. That means that you have full control over what you invest in.

Traditional vs Roth

There is one key difference between traditional and Roth IRAs. With traditional IRA plans, you invest funds into the plan pre-tax. This means you do not pay income or other taxes on funds the year you invest them into a traditional IRA

Luckily your Solo 401k can also have a Roth component So you can chose to invest in one option or the other, or both.
