What Solo 401(k) plans does NDTCO offer?

Full Service

For business owners who are looking to adopt a prototype Solo 401(k) plan for themselves, and they plan on holding their assets at NDTCO, this option incorporates both the adoption plan rental and the bookkeeping services below.

Adoption Rental

This plan is for business owners looking to adopt a prototype (pre-approved by the IRS) plan for themselves only and want the plan administration to occur independently of NDTCO. Spouses can be added if they work for the company covered by the plan. 

Bookkeeping Only

This option is for business owners who already have a 401(k) plan document outside of NDTCO, but would like NDTCO to hold the assets and provide recordkeeping, such as statements reflecting the account value that can be provided to the plan administrator.
