Simple IRA Enrollment Video

Your employer is offering a retirement plan called a Simple IRA through Capital Group (American Funds). You can deduct pre-tax money from your pay-check that will automatically be deposited into your Simple IRA and can be invested in a variety of options that are available on the platform. If you defer 3% or more from your paycheck, your employer will match that amount up to the 3%. 

Another benefit of the Simple IRA is that all of the employer match is immediately “vested” - if you were to leave the company the money you deferred plus the employer contributions are yours.

Enrollment Process

  1. Commit to saving for your future self, and submit your completed SIMPLE IRA form (1 page) to your HR representative or to our Operations Specialist via email (kim@fullcircleadvisors.com).
  2. Contact Dana (financial advisor) to discuss investment options**, deferral %, and any other questions.
  3. Complete the full apllication, sent digitally to you via DocuSign. Follow the instructions to electronically sign and submit 
  4. Your account should be ready for deferrals within 7-10 days. 

**If you don't contact Dana to discuss investment options, you will automatically be invested in the Target Date fund, an age-based portfolio that is diversified at a risk level based on how close you are to retirement age.
