Retirement financial planning includes several financial strategies, such as investments and savings, that maximize your assets for future use. Do you know what you will need to retire comfortably? The current average monthly Social Security Administration benefit averages $1,200. Is that enough to cover your expenses and fun?
It takes time to build wealth. If you’re wondering when someone should start planning for retirement, the answer is now! It’s never too early or too late to start. There are many tools available to assist you in realizing your retirement goals.
Retirement Plan Types
There are many types of retirement plans. Each has detailed options and varied benefits. The most common account types include different forms of individual retirement arrangements (IRA), Roth IRA, or 401(k).
Many people participate in retirement savings through their employers. Contributions come through salary deferments, profit sharing, and other means. You can also open a retirement account as an individual.
Choosing the right plan for your unique situation can take time and effort. Working with a financial advisor throughout the retirement financial planning process will help you make the most informed decisions about which tools are best for you.
Plans benefit both individuals and businesses
Investing in your retirement will benefit you in the future but also right now. Flexible plan options often include tax benefits associated with your contributions. These benefits vary across plans, but benefits such as reducing taxable income or paying taxes at a lower rate now to avoid higher rates at the time of withdrawal can positively impact your retirement assets.
Many small business owners are unaware of their ability to create retirement plans. If you own a limited liability company or are a sole proprietor, retirement savings options are available for you and your employees. One of the primary benefits to a business that offers retirement savings plans is reduced employee turnover.
A key element for individuals and business owners is to grow their assets through regular contributions. Your plan accrues interest. Over time, those who consistently contribute to their plan see the most significant growth.
