Plans qualified under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 401(a), including pension, profit-sharing, stock bonus, and 401(k) plans are often referred to as "qualified" plans.

Simplified Employee Pensions Plan (SEP) are under IRC, Section 408(k).

At http://personal.fidelity.com/products/retirement/getstart/newacc/keogh.shtml.cvsr Fidelity has good basis information on both the SEP-IRA, 401(k) and self emploked 401(K) plans.

I hope this helps.
