For individuals not currently participating in a company-sponsored retirement plan, there are limited solutions for retirement planning. These programs are subject to income limitations, which we are happy to discuss with you.
A tax deductible retirement plan set up with a financial institution or brokerage, where you can contribute personally or via payroll deduction. Contributions limits are set at $6,000 per individual per year, and individuals age 50 and older may be eligible for a catch-up limit of $7,000.
Tax Benefits: Contributions are Tax Deductible and Investment Earnings accumulate Tax-Deferred, and you don’t pay taxes until a withdrawal is made.
Note: There are restrictions to your Tax Deductible Contributions if you,or your spouse, are covered by an employer-sponsored plan and limits based upon total earnings.
Roth IRAs are a special type of Individual Retirement Account that you may qualify for based on your income level. The maximum contribution of $6,000 per individual per year, and individuals age 50 and older may be eligible for a catch-up limit of $7,000. It is not tax deductible, but distributions are tax-free when you follow the rules, and you can tap your contributions (but not your earnings) any time tax-free and penalty-free.
Individuals who expect their tax rate to be higher during retirement than it is now may benefit from a Roth IRA, making them ideal savings vehicles for young, lower-income workers who won’t miss the upfront tax deduction, but will benefit from decades of tax-free, compounded growth.
Tax Benefits: Investment Earnings accumulate Tax-Deferred, and you don’t pay taxes when a withdrawal is made.
HSA – Health SAVINGS ACCOUNT IRA
If you or your employer participate in a qualified high deductible health plan (HDHP), you and your family are eligible to make tax deductible contributions and enjoy triple tax saving – tax free going in, tax free while they grow and tax free when the investments are dispersed, by establishing your own Health Savings Account IRA in the amount of $3,500 to $9,000 per year depending on your plan. Funds are tax-deferred, and can be withdrawn tax free to reimburse you and your family members for your out of pocket medical, dental, orthodontic, and optical expenses.
