A self-employed 401(k) is an investment option that helps the self-employed individual save for retirement. This type of plan may also be called an individual 401(k), solo 401(k), solo k, or uni-k. Self-employed 401(k) plans are available as both Traditional and Roth IRAs.

Is a Self-Employed 401(k) Right for Me?

A self-employed 401(k) is a specialized retirement account designed to benefit a specific niche of professionals. You are eligible, and may be a good fit, if:

  • You are self-employed and don’t have any full-time employees—other than partners and spouses.
  • Your spouse is self-employed, and the business doesn’t have any full-time employees.
  • You want to maintain a greater level of control over your retirement account than traditional investments usually offer.
