Do you wonder if your company can offer an employee pension plan? We can help make it happen, with a Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) plan that can become a significant source of retirement income. We help you to determine the right income percentage for you, and for eligible employees, to contribute - while helping you maximize strategies for tax deductions to produce the best long-term outcome for everyone.

Funding Options and Flexibility

While you must adhere tocontribution limits, the source of SEP contributions can be from any business cash supply, including current income, savings, or loan proceeds.

Options to fund your SEP include:

  • Lump sum or periodic contributions
  • Transfers from any of your eligible investment accounts
  • A low-interest term loan with a one-year clean-up feature in order to maintain your business cash flow.

Our lending professionals work hand-in-hand with the retirement plan representatives to deliver a seamless loan process for SEP funding purposes.

Investment options for your SEP include a wide range of mutual funds*, stocks*, bonds*, EFTs*, or FDIC insured CDs.

You can count on strong experience from our team! Our financial professionals have more than 100 years of combined financial services experience, providing the knowledge and understanding you need to help guide you to success.

 Words from Glenn Wassermann, SVP

Acquiring wealth is one thing. Conserving it is another.  

Financial markets gyrate, the economy swings unpredictably, politics and international relations impact daily life as never before.

Of course, the financial needs of any family can change in unexpected ways.

Because you can't predict the future, you need the best investment advice possible. You may have reviewed your account with your present advisor, but it is important to obtain a second opinion. We will analyze your investment portfolio.  Just bring in your statements from your present investment sources, and get a fresh perspective from one of Orange County Trust's expert Trust & Investment Officers. There's no pressure to do business with us, but you just may decide we offer better ideas and money management. And you'll definitely be more knowledgeable. So we cordially invite you to become better acquainted with us.

If you prefer to have one of our professionals meet with you at your home or office, simply phone us at 845-341-5030 to arrange an appointment."
