Retirement Plans

Roth IRAs have become a popular way to invest for retirement because they offer different tax advantages from a traditional IRA. Instead of taking the tax deduction on the balance at the time of withdrawal, contributions are done with after-tax dollars, and the withdrawals are tax free.

There are many reasons why you might want to consider a 401k to IRA rollover for your retirement nest egg. In some cases, 401k plans might offer under-performing funds, and you could do better by opening your own account where you have more control over your risk and return. You may also be forced into a 401k to IRA rollover if you lose your job or change jobs and need to find another vehicle for your retirement account.
There isn’t a single decision you will make that rivals the importance of financial planning. Unlike what you eat for breakfast, or what model your next car will be, the decisions you make for retirement follow you for the rest of your life.
