Are You Sure You Can Afford to Retire?
Most financial experts will tell you that you need between 60%-80% of your pre-retirement income just to maintain your current lifestyle in retirement. Amazingly, according to the Employee Benefits Research Institute, less than half of Americans haven’t even given thought to how much they’ll need to retire on. Add this to the reality that the biggest risk future retirees face is running out of money while they’re still living, and what you have is a national retirement debacle unfolding. What about Social Security, you may be thinking? If it’s even still around, it will only cover about 39% of your expenses. That’s according to the Social Security Administration.
Parse all of these facts and what it boils down to is that the money you need to retire on has to be from income and investment decisions you make now. And, this is why these alternative retirement vehicles are becoming more popular. As it’s going to be up to you to make the bulk of the money you need to live on in retirement anyway, should you be the one in charge of which investments will get you there? This type of account gives you this type of control. You decide how, when and where your retirement funds are invested. And, the number of financial vehicles you can invest in are almost limitless.
