If you have a goal, you can structure your investments and savings accordingly for optimal outcomes, which can include retiring comfortably. For example, your options include:
An IRA is a personal retirement savings account that allows anyone with taxable income to save tax-free. You can set it up with any independent financial institution, such as a brokerage agency or a bank. You are the sole owner of this account. You can choose an IRA even if you have an employer-sponsored retirement plan. The annual contribution limit to an IRA account in 2023 is $6500, which is slightly higher than the limit in 2022. If you are over 50, you can contribute an additional $1000. People of any age can open IRA accounts; they only need taxable income to fund it.
However, if you are not saving tax-free income in IRA, you may have to pay taxes while withdrawing the money.
Both 401(k) & 403(b) are employer-sponsored retirement plans. In these plans, an employee contributes to their retirement savings while the employer matches the contribution. These are tax-deferred savings. Employees of private organizations are eligible for 401(k), whereas 403(b) is for non-profit or government employees. 403(b) rollovers allow you a tax exemption if your employment status changes.
