Why the 401k Has Veered Away From Its Original Design
Did you know that from its inception, the 401k was designed to work in conjunction with a pension plan? But now, most people don’t have pensions. This leaves the 401k standing alone, and I’m sorry to tell you that it is not a comprehensive retirement plan.
The Problem with a Tax-Deferred Retirement Plan
One huge problem I have with the 401k is that it’s tax-deferred. This buzzword draws people in… who doesn’t want to put off paying taxes? But here’s the thing, if you’re financially intelligent, you’ll be retiring MORE WEALTHY than you currently are. Why put off paying taxes until you’re in a higher tax bracket. Not to mention, the 401k is typically riddled with fees.
An Alternative Retirement Plan to Consider
I suggest looking into a Roth self-directed IRA. With a self-directed account, you are able to choose your investments and take control of your retirement. To learn more, book a call with our self-directed experts at morrisinvest.com
