I have referred Buyers to Benetrends a dozen times now and they always do a great job making the process quick and easy. In one case the Buyer had inadvertently omitted an important form that was going to cause a delay in the funding process. Our TEAM at Benetrends worked late into the evening Friday and pulled off a miracle! The Benetrends team made the deal happen on time and for that I am truly grateful!...

Funding Tool
The original funding plan that changed the game forever. Find out what the Rainmaker Plan® can do for you.

The Rainmaker Plan

The concept of using your retirement plan to purchase a business goes by many names: ROBS (Rollover as Business Start-ups), IRA/401(k) Rollover Funding, 401(k) business financing, to name a few. Whatever you call it, the one name to remember is The Rainmaker Plan by Benetrends. This plan was the first of its kind, and was pioneered by our founder Len Fischer, a top ERISA attorney, in 1983.

While newer companies continue to pop up, no other IRA/401(k) rollover business funding provider has been in business longer or has the expertise of Benetrends - to help you navigate, grow and succeed in business for the LONG-TERM.

In fact, Benetrends has helped over 10,000 entrepreneurs fulfill their dreams of owning a business or franchise over the past 30 years with our Rainmaker Plan®. 


Watch Benetrends client Paula Lewis discuss why she chose The Rainmaker Plan to fund her business using her retirement plan (and how we've outweighed her expectations).
