Waive Participation in a SEP

Recommended Posts

My understanding is that all that qualify must receive a contribution. The regulations allow an employer to set up an IRA for a missing or reluctant employee who does not want to participate. Its a qualification issue.

See notice 81-1

[Note: In the 11th edition, see Q&A 2:64; "Participation in a SEP is automatic within the eligible group of employees." Thus, participation can not be waived. If age 59-1/2 or older, the contribution could be withdrawn after it is made. Jevd is correct---GSL]


Making the complex understandable.
