Planning for Retirement Taxes & Income – Episode 19
We’ve been telling everyone we know that there is a “tax sale” happening right now. Taxes are the lowest they have ever been, and that’s a major thing to consider when it comes to your retirement planning.
In this episode, we are talking about planning ahead for retirement taxes and retirement income, and we dive deep into Social Security. If you aren’t accounting for paying taxes in your retirement strategy, then you could be surprised when you start making withdrawals and see that you owe more than you thought. Whatever your goal is in planning for retirement (regular income, passing money on to your kids, or a blend of both), it’s important to develop a unique strategy that makes sense for your situation and your goals.
We are so thankful you are taking the time to watch and listen! Our team here at 210 Financial is here to help if you have questions or are wondering how this information may impact your specific plan.
Key Takeaways (3-5):
1) Social Security was intended to only meet your basic needs. By 2033, the Social Security Administration is expecting to only have enough money to pay out 71% of the benefits (via SSA). Social Security is just one part of your retirement plan. Whenever possible, it’s important to have additional means of income when you retire.
2) You need to choose when you will pay taxes on your retirement income. There’s no escaping Uncle Sam; you either pay taxes now or pay them later. When you hit the retirement age of 72, you no longer have as many options and must pay taxes as you take the required withdrawals. Seriously consider if it makes sense to move your retirement income over now to a pre-tax option to take advantage of the low taxes in the current economy.
3) Know the purpose of your money. You can either plan to use your money, leave it to someone else, or a combination of the two. Depending on the purpose of your money, you will want to take advantage of different tools and investment strategies. Meet with a financial advisor to help you decide what direction fits best for the purpose of your dollars.
