Thanks to the 1974 pension law, employed persons can tex-defer 15% of income up to $1,500 a year, and the self-employed, up to $7,500 a year. The money may be put into IRS-approved plans in savings acounts, mutual funds, federal retirement bonds, certain insurance policies, and trust accounts invested in stocks and bonds.
