I have a question that seem very simple, but can't seem to find and answer to. Also, my account gave me some information, but I'm wondering if he understood what I was asking.

Currently I am employed as a contractor through a placement agency. However since my rates are very high (software engineer) I don't qualify for their 401k plan (they rate me in a special category - who knows). Now every year I open a IRA(Roth), but I wonder if their is a self-employed replacement for 401k. Last year my accountant had me open a IRA-SEP, but this year he said I can have either the traditional IRA or the IRA-SEP. Is this correct. Or is there a self employed 401k? (say the 403?).

If anyone knows the answer can you post a response or idea where I could look up the information myself.

Thanks in advance.
