Will You be Ready for Retirment?
Other than your home, your most important retirement asset may very well be your 401k plan acount and possibly your individual retirement account (IRA).
If this is true you should be congratulated. You have been putting money away for your retirement, in one of the few tax shelters provided for the average middle class taxpayer. Let's face it, to rely on social security for your retirement is not a good idea. And with the power of compounding you would be surprised at how quickly your 401k and IRA savings will grow.
If you haven't been using these tax-sheltered vehicles then you should jump on board. Not only will you be putting money aside for your own retirement, but the government will help you by giving you a kick back on your taxes.
