Managing retirement funds doesn’t need to be confusing or overwhelming. Rolling over a 401K into an IRA (individual retirement account) frequently makes it easier for the client.
I am often asked for tips on what investments should be inside of an IRA account. Here’s what I tell folks:
- Depending on your situation, you can have stocks, bonds, ETFS, mutual funds in the account
- High-dividend positions may be tax advantageous
- Tax-deferred growth is a positive… unless your stock drops in value and you lose the opportunity for a write-off
Don’t forget to make sure you take your required minimum distributions as required to avoid penalty payments.
