What Tax Deferred Options Are Available For my Retirement Years?
What tax deferred options are available for my retirement years? The 401K and traditional IRA accounts you may already have are tax deferred plans.
What tax deferred options are available for my retirement years? It’s a question everyone of working age should ponder while planning their retirement strategy. Tax deferred accounts are those which tax income only after retirement age. Traditional IRA and 401K accounts are tax deferred retirement plans. Non deferred plans include Roth IRA and Roth 401K accounts. These plans tax the contributors income during the year in which it is earned rather than at retirement age.
How do I know what tax deferred options are available for my retirement years through my employer?
The employee should take a look at the various retirement plans offered through the employer. More traditional plans such as 401K and IRA accounts will be tax deferred. The employer may also offer additional investment options instead or in addition to the normal selections. If a Roth IRA is offered through the employer the employee should consider contributing to the non deferred Roth IRA after they are satisfied with the amount invested in their more traditional plan. If the employer is educational rather than corporate a similar tax deferred retirement option is available in the 403b plan.
Why should I chose a tax deferred option for my retirement?
Tax deferred options have an advantage in that they allow for a larger sum to be invested during an employees working life. In contrast a plan that invests after tax dollars has less of a balance to appreciate. While the non deferred plan will be tax free at retirement, the tax deferred plan will have the advantage of compound interest to grow for a longer period of time. In many circumstances tax deferred retirement options are an excellent choice.
