Employer-sponsored retirement plans: Which one is right for you?



J.P. Morgan Small Business Plan Participant Research, 2021.


Under the SECURE Act, tax credits may be available to help you offset your first three years of plan startup costs in an amount equal to 50% of qualified startup costs paid or incurred, but limited to the greater of (1) $500; or (2) the lesser of (a) $250 for each non-highly compensated employee who is eligible to participate in the plan or (b) $5,000. In general, "qualified startup costs" are ordinary and necessary expenses of an eligible employer that are paid or incurred in connection with the establishment or administration of an eligible employer plan, or the retirement-related education of employees with respect to a plan if the plan has at least one participant who is not a highly compensated employee. Employers should be advised to consult their tax advisors concerning eligibility for the credit.


Traditional: Employee contributions are deducted from gross income and no taxes are due until the employee withdraws money.


Roth: Employee contributions are deducted from employee’s after-tax income and no additional taxes are due when the employee withdraws money.
