Individual 401(k) Contribution ComparisonSelf-employed individuals and businesses employing only the owner, partners and spouses have several options for tax-advantaged savings: an Individual 401(k) plan, a SEP IRA, a SIMPLE IRA, or a Profit Sharing plan. Each option has distinct features and amounts that can be contributed to the plan each year.
