Solo 401K

I was an independent contractor and opened up and contributed into my solo 401K account. I recently accepted a paying job which doesn't have a retirement plan (no contribution at all). I'm wondering if I would be able to use this new income for my solo 401K? If not, what should I do?

Can I even keep my solo 401K account now that I'm employed? I haven't given up my own business. I work a few days a week with this company and the rest of the time is dedicated to my own business. Can I contribute into my solo 401K or must I show proof of income from my own business to be able to contribute into it?

Thanks

The Solo 401(k) is unique because it only covers the business owner(s) and their spouse(s), thus, not subjecting the 401(k) plan to the complex ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974) rules, which sets minimum standards for employer pension plans with non-owner employees. There is no requirement to liquidate, nor roll over the plan. You can keep it and change the investments as you see fit, but unable to make additional contributions unless it is earned income.

Thank you

Thank you Wnhough for the clear information. I was told that I couldn't keep my solo 401K and had to roll it into an IRA. I don't really have a problem with that but since I intend to grow my own business, I don't want to have to start all over again when I make money as an independent contractor.

I see as said You may be able to roll over the nontaxable part of a Solo 401k distribution to another qualified retirement plan or a section 403(b) plan, or to a traditional IRA. The transfer must be made either through a direct (trustee-to-trustee) rollover to a qualified retirement plan or an IRA. i recommend you contact retirement plan admin whnever yo need some acccurate info;
