401(k) Business Financing

Debt-free 401(k) Business Funding

Debt-Free Funding. No Tax Penalties.

With 401(k) business funding (also called Rollovers for Business Start-ups) you can use your retirement funds to buy a business or franchise without incurring tax penalties or taking on additional debt.

A Quicker Path to Profitability

401(k) business funding isn’t a loan, so you don’t need to worry about monthly payments. Without loan interest to pay, you can make money sooner rather than later.

Easy to Qualify

There are no minimum credit requirements, and you don’t need to use your home as collateral. As long as you have $50,000 in rollable retirement funds, you’re all set.
