Smart Retirement Solutions for IRA Plans

  • Build smart plan designs for every IRA type. 
  • Lead customers and participants to make the right investment choices.
  • Streamline automated processes to save time and focus on tasks that turn into dollars.

Aspire delivers a full suite of smart retirement solutions for Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) including:
  • Traditional IRA – Allows individuals to direct pre-tax income, up to specific annual limits, toward investments that can grow tax-deferred. Distributions are taxed.
  • Roth IRA – Contributions are not tax deductible and qualified distributions are tax free. Non-qualified distributions may be subject to penalty.
  • SIMPLE IRA – Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees of Small Employers offers advantages to businesses with 100 or fewer employees earning at least $5.000 the prior year who do not have another retirement program.
  • SEP IRA – Simplified Employee Pension plan allows employers to make a tax-deductible contribution on behalf of eligible employees. Employees do not pay taxes on SEP contributions. Distributions are subject to tax-withholding rules.
  • Payroll Deduction IRA – Employee-only contribution program available to businesses of any size.
  • Rollover IRA – A transfer of funds from a qualified retirement account into a Traditional IRA or Roth IRA. Most rollovers occur at the time of a job change in order to move 401(k) or 403(b) assets into an IRA.
  • Auto Rollover IRA – Designed to be used for forced distributions to IRAs from qualified plans. The IRA must meet the Department of Labor’s safe harbor requirements.
