Retirement Plan Information
Total(k) - 401(k) and Roth 401(k)Total(k)® is the self-directed 401(k) exclusively offered by American Pension Services. This plan provides the maximum investment flexibility allowed by law, combining full diversification with all the benefits of a traditional/Roth 401(k).

A 401(k) plan is a qualified plan under which an employee can elect to have the employer contribute a portion of the employee’s cash wages to the plan on a pre-tax basis. These deferred wages (elective deferrals) are not subject to federal income tax withholding at the time of deferral, and they are not reflected as taxable income on an individual’s income tax return. 401(k) plans are permitted to allow employees to designate some or all of their elective deferrals as “Roth elective deferrals” that are generally subject to taxation under the rules applicable to Roth IRA’s.  Open Account
