On a related note, I am trying to figure out the contributions to a SEP. Does the 3% match mean 3% of the income? So if you make, say $20,000, can you put $7100 into at SEP with the first $6500 being the maximum employee contribution and the other $600 being 3 percent of $20,000? DH is a sole proprietor, so he is the only employee, but as he doesn't make much yet, I'm thinking that a SEP would let us put the most away.

Also, any suggestions on a broker? I'm looking at Fidelity, but would like to explore other options also.
