Hi,

We have finally paid off our credit card debt.

Now we are thinking about setting up a retirement plan. We are self-employed.

I have looked over various plans and I am thinking about a SEP, but I am also thinking about setting up a Roth IRA for
each of us in addition. I am planning to just keep everything in index funds, probably Vanguard.

Does anyone have experience or opinions to offer?


Sounds good.

I like the SEP because you can put more in than an IRA.

I like the ROTH because all earnings are tax free.

Max out the ROTH them go to the SEP
