Setting Up a Solo 401(k)
What to Expect
Submit your Solo 401(k) application to us.
Once we have your information, including the info on your company, which will serve as the plan sponsor, we can get to work creating the Solo 401(k) plan documents. We create proto-type customized plans, so it generally will take us several days to get all the plan paperwork in order.
Once we’re finished with the plan paperwork, we will email the plan docs to you, and also FedEx a binder with all the plan paperwork. Once you receive the binder, we’ll walk you through what needs to be signed, and answer any questions about the docs.
Once the plan documents have been executed, we’ll introduce you to one of the bankers we work with at Wells Fargo, or one of the other banks we work with, so that you can open a bank account for the Solo 401(k) plan. If you have another bank you’d prefer to work with, we’ll be happy to assist in any way we can.
The Funding or Rollover
Most people don’t know it, but you can roll over or transfer IRAs to a 401(k). You can also roll over other 401(k), 403(b), TSP, and 401(a) plans to the new Solo 401(k) as well. Keep in mind, the only account you cannot roll into the Solo 401(k) is a ROTH IRA.
Once the new Solo 401(k) is in place, we will provide you rollover and transfer forms so that you can instruct your current IRA Custodian or other plan administrator to roll over or transfer your accounts to the new Solo 401(k).
Once the rollover or transfer forms are submitted, it will generally take anywhere from 1-3 weeks for your current Custodian/Administrator to process the request and issue a check or bank wire.
Once the rollover/transfer requests have been processed, the Custodian/Administrator will send a check or bank wire, which will be deposited directly into the new Solo 401(k)’s bank account. At this point, your setup is complete, and you are ready to invest!
