Opening SEP-IRA as a Single Member LLC

Just a few questions about opening a SEP-IRA as a single member LLC

 

1) Do I open it in my LLC name or my own name?

 

2) Do I use my EIN or my SSN?

 

3) Which compensation category do i choose?

   w-2 wages (note, I do not receive a w-2 as my LLC is pass-through)

   Sect 3401(a) wages

   415 Safe-Harbor compensation

 

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the response!

 

From the link you provided I'm still unsure of which category I fall into as all of my income goes on Schedule-C and I do not receive any W-2 forms.

Opening SEP-IRA as a Single Member LLC

For a self-employed individual, contributions are limited to 25% of your net earnings from self-employment (not including contributions for yourself), up to $57,000 (for 2020; $56,000 for 2019). You can calculate your plan contributions using the tables and worksheets in Pub. 560.

 

Your income is your net earnings from self-employment as shown on Schedule C.
