My experience with Fidelity has been very good. Everyone I have spoken to is professional, knowledgeable and helpful. The website is easy to navigate and understand. The few trades I have made have been executed in a very time proficient manner and accurate. Thanks!

This SEP IRA was very easy to set up for our small company. Fidelity made it easy to do online and I didn't need to contact anyone.

I've been with Fidelity Brokerage since 2005 and have tried out a couple of other brokerages over the years. None of the competitors provide the full package that Fidelity does: comprehensive offerings, excellent customer service, superb online experience, and great mobile app.

This was super easy to get set up by calling the knowledgeable representative. There were many fund choices that did not have associated extra fees.

As a new small business owner, Fidelity provided the exact information I needed to make a decision on the right plan for my situation. The agents were very knowledgeable and courteous and walked me through all options. This could not have been any easier. I look forward to doing business with my new partner.

I rate my SEP plan excellent in all categories, although customer service will always stand out as the very best. When I was trying to transfer money from another account, Fidelity was easy to work with and did all they could do to move the transaction along when I was getting delays in the process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabi Great investment opportunity for self employees with SEP IRA
I'm a realtor and need to plan my retirement wisely. Because I'm self employed, I think SEP IRA is one of the best retirement options and Fidelity has low fees and the web site is easy to navigate for either checking the balance or trading stocks or bonds.

After several years of self-employment, I decided that the regular IRA was not adequate for me. I researched the different types of retirement savings and decided at the last minute that I needed to use the SEP-IRA. It was very quick and simple to set up the account and transfer funds from my other Fidelity account. Then I allocated the funds at my convenience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EduCoach I love my SEP!
I started my SEP IRA with Fidelity to maximize the ability to save money as a small business owner, and plan for a secure future. Accounts at Fidelity are easy to manage. One can be hands-on or hands-off. I am definitely a hands-on, active investor, and my SEP has provided a tax saving advantage for my small business that gives me the peace of mind to know I am building for my future by maximizing contributions towards my retirement. The availability of choices at Fidelity, from mutual and index funds, to ETFs, to individual stocks, make this SEP a clear winner over companies in which plan investments are limited. I recommend Fidelity every day to colleagues, friends, and family.

Amazing. One of the best things I could have done as a small business owner. I owned a small business for 18 years and the SEP IRA was such a benifit people know all the time. The SEP is a perk all small business owners should take advantage of. I used to love the day when,prior to tax time, I wrote my SEP contribution check I let people know all the time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mrs.P EFT into a SEP is unnecessarily difficult!
When I called last week to inquire about making deposits electronically into a Fidelity SEP-IRA the gentleman talked down to me and said I would have to print a deposit slip and mail a check. Or have him do it for me over the phone (if the funds were coming from another Fidelity account.) He stated this in regard to funds from both our outside checking account and our Fidelity Joint WROS.
Because I read Alan H.'s comment below, (thank you, Alan) I found out on my own how to add an outside bank account and make a deposit into a SEP-IRA and did so.
So you would think it should be just as possible to link our Fidelity accounts to transfer into a Fidelity SEP-IRA? Noooooo. Can't do it. This is stupid. A self employed person needs to fund their SEP-IRA themselves! We don't need a bank standing over us making it difficult. We make the money yet we are treated as if we are not intelligent enough to put it where it needs to go. Please! We have a tax extension and need to feed that hungry SEP!
Yes, we can write a check from the Joint WROS account and deposit electronically from our phone. But even the step of writing a check from our Fidelity Joint WROS and taking a photo of it to deposit it into our Fidelity SEP-IRA is silly.
I want to link our Joint WROS to my self employed husband's SEP-IRA to make SEP-IRA contributions. I do not want to have to make a phone call. I do not want to have to mail a check. This intransigence on the part of Fidelity will cost your depositors real tax dollars. I see a commenter below who is missing his tax deadline because of the difficulty of making a SEP-IRA deposit.

I transferred my IRA from another bank to Fidelity. Do I get some reward from Fidelity for doing this transfer? I thought I saw something to that effect on my Fidelity web site.
Any way I am very happy with the services!

I'm an investment advisor, and I use Fidelity (retail site) for my own SEP IRA. Fees are very low, fees are transparent (very important), investments are very easy to query and purchase, and research tools are excellent, including the ability to review asset allocation. Opening the account was also extremely easy relative to some competitors at which I have tried to open SEP IRA accounts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Christopher Difficult to Fund
I too have had a poor experience due to the difficulty of funding this account. SEP-IRAs can only be funded by the employer, and despite having twice been assured by Fidelity reps that it was possible to link our corporate bank account to the SEP-IRA for EFT, the application keeps getting rejected - even though I am a signatory on both accounts. It's frustrating to be told by Fidelity to mail in a form, only to have it sent back several weeks later as rejected. Like others, I don't want to have to initiate a check, wire or phone transfer, I need a means to fund conveniently online on a monthly basis.

I have been a satisfied Fidelity customer for over 20 years. When I retired as an employee and started my own company last year I opened a SEP-IRA account with Fidelity. I could not be happier with the website's utility and ease of use and with the variety of investment choices available with minimal or no transaction fee. Fidelity has created a great customer experience and aims to satisfy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by gjohn impossible customer service
My account was established thru very pro-active help by a rep when I did an online inquiry. This rep remained available and helpful throughout the transfer of funds and investment of same. Since then he no longer answers my calls or returns them. Very impolite. Feel like my money is stranded at Fidelity. The general customer service line is equally unavailable.

I have held accounts with Fidelity for many years, and find them to be easy to work with as well as providing user-friendly platforms on their website. The only complaint about the SEP-IRA I have is the inability to direct-deposit. They make depositing money fairly difficult in this day and age.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cagirl80 Great product, but lazy Financial Advisors
I opened this account when I decided to open my own consulting firm. Unfortunately, it has not turned out to be simple. The financial adviser has never called me to guide me about how to invest the money. I have to mail out a check every month which is not convenient. I don't think its the best product in terms of customer service and lack of advising.

opening the account online was easy and convenient enough. Not being able to fund my account via online bank transfer not so convenient. Driving all the way to a Fidelity location or putting in mail is just an extra effort. -not sure if that's a fidelity thing or a gov't regulations thing.
