Let’s Go Over The Basics
You may be asking, “What is an ERSOP® plan?”
→ First and foremost: the ERSOP® plan (known as Rollovers for Business Start-Ups or ROBS to the IRS) is the primary retirement plan for your business, for you and for any employees that may become eligible.
→ Second: the ERSOP® plan is an ERISA “qualified” plan into which you may rollover your existing qualified accounts: IRAs, 401(a), Defined Benefit, Money Purchase, Profit Sharing, Thrift and Savings, Stock Bonus, ESOP, 401(k), 403(b), most 457s, other retirement plans and…
→ Third: “eligible individual account plans” permitted to invest plan assets into the stock of your business.
ERSOP has no taxes, no penalities, is NOT a loan, and we NEVER touch your money!
ERSOP has no conflicts of interest with your retirement funds because we sell no investements.

How ERSOP® Works
Step 1: The Corporation
The Law requires you have a Corporation. These are not simple-generic-internet-do-it-yourself corporations. They have important idiosyncrasies that need special attention. Once this has been established, we can move onto step 2.
Step 2: The ERSOP® Plan
After the Corporation has been established, we now move onto setting up the ERSOP® Plan. This Plan will be the vehicle in which your retirement funds can do a direct rollover into. Which brings us to Step 3.
Step 3: The Rollover
After the Corporation and the ERSOP® Plan are established (and the two bank accounts that will be associated to them), you may now begin the rollover process. First you will roll your money into the ERSOP® Plan bank account and then from there, move the money into the Corporation bank account. This will be in exchange for stock. That’s it! You’re up and running!

What Everyone Else Is Not Telling You
With the plethora of companies that have become available to those looking to use their retirement money for business start-up, there is a lot of confusion among what makes one company differ from another. We think it is important for people to know what other companies are most likely not telling you.
The Significance of the Exit Strategy
Getting your ERSOP Plan up an running is a relatively simple process. However, we believe it is not just getting you into one of these, but getting you OUT of one is just as important.
The Significance of Charging A Flat Fee
ERISA states that the transaction is exempt from being a prohibited transaction “if no commission is charged with respect thereto . . .” If we charged a variable fee instead of a flat fee for service, the IRS could assert that the variable fee was a commission, and therefore the investment of the funds into the stock of your new corporation was a distribution subject to taxes and penalties.
Why Companies Who Accept Commisions Are Putting Their Clients At Risk
ERISA states that the transaction is exempt from being a prohibited transaction “if no commission is charged with respect thereto . . .” to which the IRS adds “to or from a ‘disqualified person’.” We are defined in the Internal Revenue Code as a “disqualified person” because we provide services to the plan. If the IRS found during an examination (IRS audit) of your plan that we had paid or received a commission by any name, the IRS could assert the investment of the funds into the stock of your new corporation was a distribution subject to taxes and penalties. A franchisor must disclose any commissions paid or received in its FDD and if it is so disclosed in the FDD it would thereby be disclosed to the IRS. Therefore, anyone who pays or receives a commission in respect to establishing these plans are putting their clients at risk with the IRS.
Why ERSOP® Does Not Sell Investments Or Investment Services
We believe that there is an irreconcilable conflict of interest between the design and administration of the PLAN and the sale of investments to the TRUST fund.
Back in 2009 when the economy was collapsing I was fool hardy enough to start a new condo development in Tucson,Arizona. Banks weren’t lending to anyone and I heard about the ERSOP program. I was nervous at first because I was afraid of the government frowning on the way you use and administer your retirement plan. I was heavily invested in the project and was determined to move forward. This program was developed by the federal government for projects exactly like mine. By freeing up my retirement fund to finance the development of my condo project I moved forward. I was able to create jobs for many needy construction workers helping to stimulate the floundering economy. I finished the first seventeen condos in 2011 and I’m happy to say that I just finished seventeen more making the total completed at fifty five with more planned. The ERSOP program is a wonderful tool if it’s used as intended. If it wasn’t for this program a lot of people would have gone without a paycheck including me.
