Beginning to save for your retirement is an important decision. We should all try to get the basics correct. We all know that setting money aside is difficult, and the current state of the economy can make this more difficult. Therefore to invest money at the moment is very difficult to do. What makes it more difficult is the fact that there are so many investment opportunities available, this makes it is hard to even understand let alone decide on one. The 401k Roth plan may or may not add to that difficult decision. The 401k Roth plan has been around for approximately 4 years. If your income falls within the high income bracket then this plan is perfect for you. The 401k Roth plan does not incur tax fees. The plan gives you the opportunity to shore up your investment.Let’s take a quick look at the original 401 (k) plan. This holds back the tax that your pay on your retirement savings until the time when you retire. Whereas the alternative 401k Roth taxes you as you pay into it, allowing you to know there and then exactly how much you will receive when you retire. Many people already know about the 401k Roth plan which was introduced by George Bush, it is not new however it is not a main stream plan, and many companies do not offer it. They don’t want the bother of having to provide a new plan to their employees. If this is the case then you can request that it is implemented.Let’s look at who benefits the most from the new 401k Roth plan. It is primarily the higher earners that benefit from the plan. They end up saving much more retirement money than they would with the first Roth plan. The Roth IRA does not benefit people with high incomes. The alternative 401k Roth is great for high income earners (high income being anyone who earns over $110,000). It has no limits and you can set aside up to $15,000 compared to the previous plan of $5,000. With the new plan you can see exactly how much you will have on retirement. The 401k Roth was slow at first but it is now starting to improve and is doing really well. It would do much better if employers started to implement it more into companies.
