Are There Benefits to Taking a Solo 401(k) Loan?

As a result of the most recent economic meltdown, banks and other financial institutions have severely limited their lending capacity to self-employed business owners, thus, causing grave financial pressure on self-employed business owners. The Solo 401(k) Plan is a perfect structure for any self employed business owner seeking immediate funds for their business. Solo 401(k) participants can borrow up to either $50,000 or 50% of their account value – whichever is less to help finance or operate their business. Other useful ways of using the participant loan feature is to:

  • Lend the funds to a third-party who will pay a higher interest rate
  • Invest in a real estate project that offers a higher rate of return than the low interest rate you must pay
  • To consolidate debt
  • To pay for college expenses
  • To pay for unexpected emergencies
  • Avoid distribution penalties and gain use up to $50,000 immediately with no restrictions
  • Invest in a new franchise or business
  • Make any alternative Investment that will generate a higher rate of return than the low Interest rate imposed on you, such as tax liens, private placements, or mortgage pools.
  • Invest in a transaction that would otherwise be a Prohibited Transaction under Internal Revenue Code Section 4975.
  • Quick, easy, and cheap access to a $50,000 loan to be used for any purpose
