Great alternative to doing it with a broker if you prefer trading yourself. Also the Fidelity office is conveniently located just around the corner from my office.

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.

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 5 out of 5 by JRS Better than other brokerage accounts
As a recently retired financial adviser I have seen many brokerage accounts. The Fidelity account is much easier to use and is more feature rich.

Great option for retirement, easy to open, however you can not transfer money to this account online. You must call to add a new contribution each time.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by skk13 SEP IRA Review
The convenience is that I have most of my retirement in Fidelity 401K so great that an SEP IRA was available as its my current employers retirement vehicle. I have not been active in managing this and am not sure if its invested properly - or even if I have options to do so.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Michael C. SEP IRA capability terrific; online reporting miserable
I like everything about the functionality of the Fidelity SEP IRA. However, up-to-date information about current year withdrawals, deposits & ROTH conversions do not exist. The only way to get the information is thru the excruciating process of reviewing the detailed transaction history.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SmBiz67 Good plan for small business
The Fidelity SEP IRA is a good choice for my small business, as it gives me the necessary flexibility while still providing a good alternative to a 401K. The only downside that I currently see is that to transfer monies into the account, I need to send a check or call a representative to have the electronic transfer initiated from the Fidelity side. I'd prefer to be able to initiate the electronic transfer myself.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JustLookingForService Poor Online Service At Fidelity
Fidelity offers systems that waste our time. It seems there should be more concern for easy-to-use forms, applications, instructions, etc. Finding a form on the website even takes time and hunting. Today we attempted to sign up for ETF service to send money electronically to Fidelity. Several hours later after downloading, printing, filling out, signing, scanning, creating PDFs, all at the proper size not to clog the Fidelity pipe and without much help from a chat agent or supervisor, we finally submitted our enrollment. At the end of the process we were confronted with a Notary Guarantee Certificate. Getting a driver's license is easier. 1 out of 10 for this. Today, when most consumers know that banks keep few of our interests close to their hearts, it's obvious they don't care how much time we waste dealing with them. Online support personal pleasant but clueless. Kudos, Fidelity. Make it harder for us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SEP check mailer Mailing paper checks
It is inconvenient not to be able to do an online fund transfer from my business account to the SEP account at Fidelity. One has to cut a paper check and mail it to Cincinnati. In this day and age that seems like an unnecessary inconvenience.The result is still the same - the funds from the business account get deposited to the Fidelity SEP account. Why not do it electronically.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TOB Make your transfers early and don't use EFT
Most frustrating experience ever. Try to get your money into your SEP is a total Joke. You can't do it on line and you must have lots of time if. I transfered money using the EFT process thinking that 4 days, (as stated) on the web page would work. At day 4 nothing. Funds are not available to move to my SEP. Now after the fact I am told you should have wired it. I am going to miss the 15th deadline due to a very broken process as Fidelity.
Set up your SEP elsewhere. This is horrible.

One thing that I would like to see changed would be to provide or offer a summary at year end.
Most other mutual fund companies offer this and I find it very helpful in maintaining historical records.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dstar21 Need Deposit Options
Overall the account is adequate and meets my investing needs. I would like more options for depositing money into my SEP account. Currently I can only deposit money by writing a check and mailing it in or dropping it off at a branch. This is highly inconvenient in today's modern world of EFT and mobile deposit options. I should at the very least be able to wire money into my SEP account from an outside bank.

Rated 3 out of 5 by c SEP needs electronic contribution
I should be able to contribute electronically with ease to my SEP IRA. However, I currently have to submit a form and a check, wait for the deposit, etc..
Also, I should have been able to open a self-401K at any point instead of being restricted.
The lack of fees is the only reason I am keeping this account open.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GlynW Access but awkward
I like almost everything about my SEP-IRA account at Fidelity except the arrangement of funds in my reports. The funds are arranged alphabetically by fund symbol, not by the type of funds, eg, large-cap, mid-cap, etc. The arrangement doesn't help me to monitor my overall strategy very well.
