TrustDale Tip of the Day: *Ways to Prepare for Retirement

Putting money away for retirement is a habit we can all live with. Remember... Saving Matters
  1. When you open an IRA, you have two options - a traditional IRA or a Roth IRA. The tax treatment of your contributions and withdrawals will depend on which option you select. Also, the after-tax value of your withdrawal will depend on inflation and the type of IRA you choose. IRAs can provide an easy way to save. You can set it up so that an amount is automatically deducted from your checking or savings account and deposited in the IRA.
  2. Find out about your Social Security benefits - Social Security pays benefits that are on average equal to about 40 percent of what you earned before retirement. You should receive a Social Security Statement each year that gives you an estimate of how much your benefit will be and when you can receive it. For more information, visit the Social Security Administration's Web site or call 1.800.772.1213.
