Small Business Retirement Plans in Lima OH & Elida OH

Offering a retirement plan for your employees could be one of the best things you'll do for your small business. The benefits aren't just in the future, either—as pointed out by the Department of Labor, starting a retirement plan offers immediate tax benefits in the form of deductibles, deferred taxation, and tax-free growth. Small employers can also usually take advantage of available tax credits that help offset the creation and administration of their plan, making it both easy and affordable to get started.

Types of Small Business Retirement Plans

If you're going to start offering small business retirement plans, you need to decide what type of plan(s) are actually going to be offered. There are a few different choices, each with their own advantages for different types of business owners.

401(k) Plans

A 401(k) plan—named after its designation by the IRS—is a special type of retirement account that allows employees to contribute some of their earnings into a savings plan. The three main forms of 401(k) plans available are Safe Harbor, Automatic Enrollment, and Traditional, all of which have important differences for small businesses. We encourage talking to a certified financial professional prior to selecting a plan in order to ensure that it's right for your company's needs, both now and in the future.

Profit Sharing Plans

If your company's income is variable, you can opt for what's known as a "profit sharing plan." These plans accept contributions at the discretion of employers, and typically do not require a certain amount of contributions each year. This is especially useful for startups, who may not have funds to spare as they work to establish themselves and deal with the challenges of creating a new business.

While all plans are required to file a Form 5500 each year to report their performance, the plans are accepted for businesses of any size and can even be used by companies that have other retirement plans in place. A Ley Insurance Agency agents would be happy to discuss these and other options with you.

Guarantees and protections are subject to the claims paying ability of the issuing insurance company.

I am extremely happy with Ley Insurance Agency. I had been a lifelong customer with another company and continued to have rate increases. When I contacted Ley Insurance I found the staff to be very courteous and they explained the products thoroughly. I was astounded when I discovered I could save nearly $1,000 per year in premiums. I quickly shared the word and referred several others. They also saved a significant amount of money and are very pleased that they made the switch as well. Thank you for your outstanding service!

When my daughter was 'kicked out' of our insurance company approximately 20 years ago, Ley Insurance was the first one of approximately 10 companies that would insure my two teenager and myself. It sticks with you when you are turned down. Many have told me I could find cheaper or better and I don't go looking. I remember who helped us out many years ago.
