Five Things to Do Now To Prepare For the Retirement Plan Changes
Thirty years ago, retirement planning was simple and predictable: you had your company pension, personal savings and social security. Those days are long gone. Pensions – private companies can’t get rid of them fast enough. Personals savings – vanished. Social security – fading fast.
But people are still retiring and now – more than ever before – they need to protect their savings, create income for their retirement, and establish tax strategies which allow them to retain their wealth.
Having enough cash and an income stream that won’t outlive their longer lifespan is the challenge faced by retirees these days. And with a sour economic market, more complex tax laws and rising health costs, maintaining – even establishing – a comfortable retirement won’t be easy.
Welcome to retirement’s new reality!
Retirement accounts in the US currently hold more than $11.6 trillion of untaxed assets. The cash-strapped government is on a constant look out for ways that will ensure money through income taxes, limiting contributions, excise taxes, and other creative means, to keep the cash flow constant.
