Mountain West IRA – SEP

Simplified Employee Pension (SEP)

How to Open a Self-Directed SEP IRA Account
  • We have step-by-step directions HERE.
  • You may also view our Process Diagram HERE.
  • If you have any questions, please contact our office HERE.


If you choose to contribute to your retirement plan, you have the ability to select the percentage of contribution for any given year (0-25% of earned income) for both yourself and your staff. The only requirement is that the contribution percentage for a given year must be the same for each employee.

If you would like a self-directed SEP and your current retirement plan does not allow self-direction, you may transfer all or part of the funds to a Mountain West self-directed SEP so that you may choose your own investments.

Why Consider a Mountain West Self-Directed SEP IRA?
  • A Mountain West self-directed SEP IRA does not have the start-up and operating costs of a conventional employer plan.
  • Allows for tax-deductible contribution.
  • You and your employees can have the flexibility to self-direct your retirement funds into real estate, mortgages, and other alternative investments.
Also Consider a Self-Directed SEP IRA If
  • You are: a sole proprietor, independent contractor, self-employed, partner, corporation, or S corporation
  • Your business pays no taxes on investment earnings
  • You do not want to be locked into making contributions every year
  • You would like a plan with low administrative costs
  • You are looking for a wider range of investment choices
