There is no age limit for contributions into the Simplified Employee Pension plan (SEP)

As long as otherwise the person is eligible for such contribution - he/she may continue such contribution after attaining the age 70 1/2.

An eligible employee is an employee who:

  • Is at least 21 years of age, and
  • Has performed service for you in at least 3 of the last 5 years.

Moreover as long as an employee earns at least $500 for the year (in additional to tests above) he/she MUST be allowed to participate in the plan.
