"THIS is the place to establish your Solo 401k"
We previously utilized another company to set up our Solo 401k and the support was almost non-existent. How refreshing to find Nabers Group which created a new Solo 401k, has excellent resources available on their website, conducts informative webinars, and is available to respond to any remaining questions. THIS is the place to establish your Solo 401k!

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! Ever since the Pension Protection Act was passed in 2006, you have the ability to do a tax free transfer, or “rollover,” of retirement funds from one retirement account to another.

You must meet 2 requirements to open a Solo 401k:

1) Entrepreneurship – This can be working as a freelancer, independent contractor, or business owner. This can be in the form of a sole proprietor or a formal corporation or LLC. Your entrepreneurship can be brand new, part time, or full time.

2) No full time employees – If you pay yourself a W2 paycheck that’s fine, but no outside W2 employees who work 1000+ hours a year.

Yes, it is possible for your spouse to participate in your Solo 401k, without having to create another Solo 401k plan. He/she will be able to rollover and contribute funds alongside you.

This also means you and your spouse can combine your retirement funds for investments, which is illegal in IRAs.

No. With a Solo 401k, you can be your own custodian.

No. Because you don’t need a custodian, you also don’t need to create a “checkbook control” LLC. Your “checkbook control” feature is built in to your Solo 401k.

This saves you fees, delays, and the potential of getting into compliance trouble as most self directed IRA fraud happens in custodian accounts.

Yes! And it’s better than a self directed IRA because your Solo 401k is exempt from taxes on leveraged real estate profits.

Yes! Your Solo 401k can buy Bitcoin, Ether, Litecoin, Dash, and thousands of other cryptocurrencies. It’s the fastest growing asset class in the world, and you can tap into a market that has grown over 1000% in the past year, using your Solo 401k.

Yes! ROTH is a special tax treatment that allows you to not only grow your money tax free, but make retirement distributions tax free as well.

You can have traditional and Roth funds all in one Solo 401k, and your spouse can too. This means it’s like 4 retirement accounts in one.

Still not sure if a Solo 401k is right for you?

Just answer a few questions and we'll help you identify the self directed retirement plan that is best fit for you.
