As the trending continues with employers not offering pensions, employees are left with only their social security benefits as a source of income in retirement. It is now more important than ever to begin establishing and building a private pension that can possibly guarantee an additional stream of income for you and your spouse. At Texas Private Wealth Advisors (TPWA), we strive to help our clients find a reliable way to secure a certain percentage of their overall income needed in retirement. Whether you need to secure 100% of your income in retirement or only require replacing 75%, we will work with you to build an effective and efficient way to secure your overall income needs.
As retirement approaches, many begin to ponder how and when to withdraw from their retirement or investment accounts and what potential consequences may occur. Prior to withdrawing from these accounts, our advisors will help develop a strategy that can potentially minimize or even at times eliminate unnecessary income taxes. Utilizing direct rollovers along with charitable distributions can potentially help alleviate the burden of unwanted taxes and penalties. RMD’s will become a concern for those who are 70 ½ and own an IRA because for those not taking a required minimum distribution will cause an immediate 50% penalty.
