When Should You Get Retirement Planning Help?
You should get retirement planning help at the start of your career, during your career, and during your retirement years. Everyone of all ages needs to get help, but the assistance you receive will be different depending upon where in your working life you are.
When you are first beginning to work and earn money, you should set retirement goals and begin putting cash aside for your future right away. If you begin to save when you are very young, you will not face as much of a struggle to put aside money for retirement because you can save less and still end up with a substantial nest egg due to compounding interest. As you begin your work life, an attorney can help you to select the right type of retirement accounts and to set goals for putting aside the money you will need to retire when you want to.
As you move closer to retirement age, your attorney will help you to determine if you are on track for retirement and can help you to explore the rules for catch up contributions so you can build up a better nest egg. We can also provide you with assistance in protecting the assets that you may have acquired over the course of your working life so your property will not be at risk if you end up requiring nursing home services when you age.
Finally, when you have retired and become a senior, your attorney can explain the rules for required withdrawals from tax-advantaged accounts and can help you to decide how much money you can comfortably take out of your accounts without jeopardizing the ability to make your money last.
What Do You Need to Know About IRAs and Retirement Planning?
One of the key things that a retirement planning attorney helps with is choosing the right kinds of investment accounts. There are Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs) which provide tax advantages to eligible savers, and taking advantage of these accounts can give your savings a major boost since the government essentially subsidizes your savings.
For most people, traditional and Roth IRAs are the best options for setting aside retirement funds and getting tax breaks. Traditional IRAs let you invest with pre-tax dollars because you can deduct the amount of money you are allowed to invest each year. Roth-IRAs let you grow your money tax free, although you invest with after-tax dollars.
Both traditional and Roth-IRAs have income limits and contribution limits, so your lawyer can explain the rules. If you are self employed or own a business, your attorney can also help you to determine if Simple or SEP IRAs could be the best choice for you.
