Simsbury Bank retirement specialists stand ready to work with you to tailor a comprehensive plan to help you achieve your personal retirement goals, as well as help your employees achieve theirs.

Choose from the following range of solutions from well-known companies through LPL Financial and its affiliates1:

QRP (Keogh)

Profit-sharing plan for small businesses that offers greater flexibility in choosing the percentage of income to contribute each year.

  • Deduct contributions for yourself and your employees from your company’s federal income tax
  • No required annual contribution
  • No minimum initial investment

Simple IRA

Like a 401(k) and for small businesses with less than 100 employees looking for an easy way to provide a tax-deferred retirement plan to their employees.

  • Easy to set up, cost-effective and less complicated tax fillings
  • Employer match contributions may be tax deductible
  • Over 13,000 investment options including mutual funds, stocks, bonds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs)
  • Two employer contribution options:
    • Match employee salary contributions up to 3% of compensation. This can be reduced to 1% in any two out of five years.
    • Make a non-elective contribution of 2% of compensation for all eligible employees (including those who decide not to contribute for themselves), regardless of whether the participant contributes
  • No minimum initial investment


Also similar to a 401(k) and for small businesses with few employees looking who want flexibility in the amounts they contribute annually and want a simple, easy-to-administer, low-cost plan with no complicated tax filings.

  • Deduct contributions for yourself and your employees from your company’s federal income tax
  • Easy to set up, cost effective and less complicated tax fillings
  • Funded solely by employer contributions
  • Contribute up to 25% of compensation

401(k) and 403(b)

Employer-sponsored retirement plans offer you, as the employer:

  • Tax credits and other federal government incentives
  • The ability to recruit and retain dedicated employees
  • The ability to help your employees plan for their future and save for retirement

Any size business can establish a 401 (k) plan, which can provide your business with the potential for significant tax advantages.  Employer contributions are deductible from the company’s income.


A 403(b) plan is a tax-deferred retirement plan that can be established by public education organizations such as primary and secondary schools, state colleges and universities and junior colleges and by non-profit organizations such as hospitals, religious organizations, charitable institutions and social welfare agencies.

Buy/Sell Agreement Funded with Life Insurance

Either a company or an individual co-owner (policy owner) can purchase life insurance policies on the lives of each co-owner to ensure that in the event of a co-owner’s death, the policy owner receives the death benefits from the life insurance policy on the other co-owner’s life. Such an arrangement helps ensure the continuity of your business by creating a lump sum to fund the buy-sell agreement. Proper planning can help maximize financial return and minimize tax liabilities in the transition of the business.

Money Purchase Program

A Money Purchase Pension Plan, also known as a defined contribution plan, is a retirement plan where the employer is required to make contributions to the plan each year on behalf of the plan participants based on a fixed percentage of compensation. These contributions are required every year and are a deductible business expense. Employer contributions depend on the profitability of the company, which give employees incentive to make the business profitable.
