Why do you think that clients that have a Money Purchase Program, will want to change their pension plan to a SEP.

Since the maximum profit sharing contribution is going up from 15% of compensation to 25% for 2002, some people may decide that's enough and they don't want to pay to maintain a separate money purchase pension plan.
However, since the overall limitation for defined contribution plans is increasing, some taxpayers may still find money purchase pension plans advantageous.
That's why I suggest consulting with a professional pension advisor when implementing changes under the new tax rules.
