Hey, Entrepreneurs, Freelancers and Self-Employed Folks:
Are you saving for retirement?
In 2015, some 15 million people were self-employed -- approximately 10.1 percent of all U.S. workers -- but many of them are not saving for retirement.
Although retirement savings options for the independently employed aren't as obvious or automatic as they are for regular employees, there are a number of good options to help you squirrel away some of that hard-earned income using special tax-deferred accounts.
In this class you will learn:
- about self-employed retirement savings vehicles such as SEP IRAs and solo 401ks
- the difference between a traditional IRA and a Roth IRA and eligibility for contributions
- what is a rollover IRA
This class is for anyone who has self-employed or 1099 income and wants to learn how to save money on taxes and put it to work for their retirement.
