I also am a rookie fool wanting to start some retirement savings. I am self employed with no full time employees. Other than the allowed annual deposit amounts, are there any other differences/considerations between these two vehicles?

Would the SEP contributions be tax deductable from Schedule C and the IRA from the 1040?

What about the Minimum Annual Withdrawl (or whatever it is called) after a certain age? Does it apply to both?

Does a broker have to handle the same paperwork for an SEP as an IRA? Would that give more choices for brokers?

Thanks fools,
