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.

The simplicity of working with the SEP IRA account is the first quality that comes to mind. Understandability and simplicity of the statements and full functionality via the web interface are excellent in all regards. As with all of my accounts with Fidelity, I am confident that they are secure.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mike it's OK
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.

High quality service continues to be the hallmark of Fidelity Investments. I recommend that Fidelity add the ability to include a note associated with the contribution to indicate the year of the contribution.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rsal Lots of options and low fees
Fidelity SEP-IRAs have access to Fidelity's wide range of low-fee mutual funds as well as low commission stock purchases. Convenient and has good customer service. Also provides access to useful on-line seminars. The only weakness is on-line security. While 2-factor authentication isn't necessary, I would prefer to have a challenge question as with some other investment accounts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MissBelgravia Good Experience
I had a great meeting with the agent who set up my accounts, and customer service has been perfect ever since. The only issue I have is that I have to reset my password every time I come onto the site. The solution I was given by a customer service agent didn't work. If it's because I use a MAC instead of a PC, I wish that could be fixed. But that's a small inconvenience, and I'm very happy with Fidelity.

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 am fairly self-sufficient and I find that this Fidelity program works well with what I use it for. I have this on my Fidelity App also and can easily review each day while not at the office.
I have several Watch Lists, one is the SEP, one is the Joint and one is a looksee of various stocks and funds that I watch out for. So without logging in it is a great convenience for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adam Great but one comment
Love it, but one comment would like more options to toggle the view / default view on my 'positions' page. I want to see how its performed $/time ie change since purchase isn't very helpful when i've bought things at different times. Annualized return since purchase or something similar would be a more effective metric. Also a better easy view of overall performance (say in the last month or year) including sold assets.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Alan H. SEP-IRA
The worst product on the market coupled with terrible customer service. No matter how many times I request the EFT option to transfer funds from my bank to my SEP-IRA, fidelity can't seem to make it happen. Basically, you're left with an account that you can't use unless you want to make a phone call every time you want to transfer funds. It really makes saving for retirement extremely inconvenient.
