    Hi –

    I’m planning to contribute to the after-tax portion of my solo 401k for 2021 in short order (at Charles Schwab). Can I directly contribute to it by ACH using my personal checking account?

    In short, no, as Schwab does not allow for it.

    Schwab won’t allow you to electronically transfer funds to the brokerage account from an external account not titled in the name of the solo 401k plan.

    One option is to open an account at a bank in the name of the Solo 401k so that you can make contributions to the bank account (which would count as contribution to the plan since in the name of the plan) and then electronically transfer funds from the Solo 401k bank account to the brokerage account at Schwab.

    A second option is to open a brokerage account at Schwab in your name, fund the brokerage account in your name, and then transfer the funds from the brokerage account in your name to the brokerage account in the name of the solo 401k plan (subject to the contribution limits, deadline, etc.).
