Traditional and Roth IRAs by Carry

Backdoor Roth IRA conversion

“The process of opening a solo 401k used to be extremely complex, and you had to do most of the administration work yourself… I don’t normally get excited about retirement plans, but Carry is building something I’ve wanted to exist for a long time.”

“There are now so many people who are self-employed, and Carry is building the perfect financial vehicle to help them turn their business income into generational wealth. [Carry] is so powerful and flexible that it feels like you’re getting access to a tax loophole.
Co-founder @ Hustle Fund

Why you need to use Carry
Carry is the easiest way to set up a solo 401k and start investing your money with tax-free compounding. You can open an account in under 10 minutes, and we take care of all paperwork and administration for you. No need to open separate brokerage accounts (unless you want to!) – it can all be done through your Carry account.†
Invest in traditional assets like stocks and ETFs through the app,† or take your Carry Solo 401(k) plan to any third party custodian for full checkbook control to directly invest your money in alternative assets like real estate and crypto.
You get to decide whether you want to contribute with pre-tax dollars and get a tax deduction, or contribute into a Roth account for tax-free withdrawals in retirement. Deduct up to $66,000 from your taxable income, or put the whole amount into a Roth account. It’s entirely up to you.
A mega backdoor Roth solo 401k lets you invest up to $66,000 entirely into a Roth account (10x more than a Roth IRA, and 3x more than what’s traditionally allowed with a 401k). A mega backdoor Roth is a complex procedure with many moving parts. With Carry, we’re there for you every step of the way.
Create your account, make direct contributions, rollover assets, and invest your funds all in one place.† And if you need help, we’re here for full account administration assistance, plan support, and security & compliance monitoring.
