New York, NY (PRWEB) June 23, 2014
Many Americans face a myriad of options when planning for retirement. For many it’s difficult to distinguish between the different and confusing sounding programs. With names like IRA to SEP IRAs to Roth IRAs and now 401k plans many are not sure how to structure their planning.
In this article IraSuccess.com reviews how 401(k) plans can provide the opportunity for employees to make before-tax contributions as well as benefit from possible employer contributions. Many are unaware of the match contributions (e.g. free money) and tax benefits offered from 401(k) company sponsored programs.
Ira Success compares the benefits and disadvantages to employer sponsored 401k plans. Issues discussed in the article include, the lack of real control over investments in a 401(k), and the limitations for employees not looking for a long-term employment situation.
Critical limitations to the 401k program are presented including the effect of a vesting period which limits the employee’s access to the full amount of the funds in their earliest years at the firm.
According to Roy Weissman, founder of IraSuccess.com, “Employees need to be fully educated as to the rules regarding 401k plans prior to investing their hard earned incomes. Those moving from one company to another, for example, sometimes miss out on opportunities to transfer their account’s assets to the new company. Employees who make the mistake of obtaining a distribution can create substantial tax liabilities,” Weissman said.
