Since it’s never too early to start saving and investing for retirement, I feel strongly passionate about maximizing my retirement investments and helping my friends and family to do the same. So I hope the detailed information I put together will be helpful to your retirement investing education!
I love Roth IRAs the most because you are not forced to take a required minimum distribution (RMD) from them, unlike a Traditional IRA, pre-tax 401k, and Roth 401k.
The major benefit with the Roth IRA is you pay taxes while you are currently in a lower income tax bracket, and enjoy tax-free withdrawals during retirement. You can grow contributions and earnings tax-free with a Roth IRA so you get the tax break later!
With a Traditional IRA where you get the tax break now, you don’t pay taxes on contributions and earnings now if you are in a higher tax bracket, but pay ordinary income tax on distributions during retirement.
The 2022 annual contribution limits for either Roth IRA or Traditional IRA are: $6,000 if under 50 or up to $7,000 if over 50.
A 401k is often an employer-sponsored or workplace defined contribution plan, and some plans allow for a total maximum contribution in 2022 of up to $61,000 if under 50 or $67,500 if over 50. But 2022 the elective contribution annual limits are $20,500 if under 50, up to $27,000 if over 50. Your employer may or may not choose to match your contributions to the 401k plan.
I also explain the Solo 401k, which is the best of all worlds, and the SEP IRA (Simplified Employee Pension Individual Retirement Account), and SIMPLE IRA (Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees Individual Retirement Account) for either the self-employed and/or small business owners.
If you max out your retirement contributions across the Roth IRA ($6,000), 401k ($20,500), and HSA ($3,650) every year and compound these amounts at the stock market’s average 7% rate of return per year, you will have $1 million after 18 years, $2 million after 25 years, and $3 million after 30 years! Pretty sweet deal if you ask me!
So go out and save for retirement because millions of dollars are waiting for you to compound them!
