Keogh Plan

A tax-deferred retirement plan for self-employed individuals and employees of unincorporated businesses. Keogh plans are similar to IRAs but have significantly higher contribution limits. Distributions from Keogh plans and most other employer-sponsored retirement plans are taxed as ordinary income and, if taken before age 59_, may be subject to a 10% federal income tax penalty. Generally, once you reach age 70_, you must begin taking required minimum distributions.
