Tax-Deferred Growth Potential and Generous Contribution Limits

  • You can contribute up to up to $52,000 in 2014 ($51,000 in 2013)—much higher than the annual limit for Traditional and Roth IRAs.
  • Any earnings on your savings grow tax-deferred until withdrawn.
  • Since you may be in a lower tax bracket after you retire, your SEP-IRA withdrawals could be taxed at a lower rate than what you pay now.

Low Costs

  • No commissions or plan setup costs.
  • Choose from over 90 no-load mutual funds.
  • We keep our mutual fund expenses low to help you save even more.
  • An annual $20 account service fee is charged for each mutual fund account with a balance below $10,000. The $20 account service fee will be waived for the following circumstances: Subscribe to electronic delivery of statements and confirmations*; maintain an individual combined balance of $50,000 or more for all T. Rowe Price accounts (including mutual funds, Brokerage, Variable Annuity, and Small Business Retirement Plans); or qualify for T. Rowe Price Select Client Services based on higher asset levels of $100,000 or more.
  • If the Participant Account is closed during the year, a $20 closeout fee will be deducted automatically from the proceeds of the total redemption. However, the closeout fee is waived when an account service fee was previously assessed to the participant account for that year or when the proceeds are being used for a rollover, transfer or conversion to a T. Rowe Price retirement plan account or T. Rowe Price IRA.
*Participants can subscribe to paperless delivery via the T. Rowe Price website once their account is established.

Easy Maintenance, Easy Saving

  • You make deductible contributions directly to individual retirement accounts
    (SEP-IRAs) for yourself and your employees.
  • No reports to file with the IRS.
  • Eligible employees can combine SEP-IRA contributions with other Traditional IRA contributions in the same account.
  • Our Small Business Retirement Specialists are available to help you set up your account and answer any questions.
