SIMPLE IRAs are generally funded with both employer contributions and employee contributions. Employee contributions, generally referred to as salary-deferred contributions, are made on a pre-tax basis from the employees’ paycheck, which reduces their taxable income. The level for contribution per each employee is $12,000 and an additional $2,500 for individuals over 50 years of age (2006). Similar to the SEP IRA, contributions to the SIMPLE IRA, including those made by the employer, are immediately 100% vested. Employer contributions to SIMPLE IRAs are usually mandatory for the years the SIMPLE IS maintained.
