Dallas, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/24/2012 -- If planning for retirement was not confusing enough, terms like Roth IRA are enough to make the average person’s head spin.
TheRothIraExperts.com, led by Jeremy M. Bloom, takes an expert look at the world of Roth IRAs but puts it in everyday language anyone can understand.
“That is important, simple language. The world of finance is confusing enough. When the big words and fancy expressions are added in, it’s even worse. We wanted to make a website that anyone can understand,” Mr. Bloom said. “With this information, a person who meets with a Roth IRA manager will come to the meeting ready to ask the important questions. They will already have a basic understanding of the investment account.”
The website takes a look at what’s needed to open a Roth IRA. It is very important issue for anyone who is investing for retirement. The chief requirement to open an account is income. As this amount varies from year to year, so checking with an investment adviser is probably the best route here.
In contrast the maximum contribution to a Roth IRA is simple. Mr. Bloom said anyone under 50 may contribute $5,000 a year. Anyone over 50 may contribute $6,000 a year.
“That’s about as simple as it gets for the Roth IRA. Where it gets complicated is in things like Modified Adjusted Gross Income and Tax Filing Status,” he said. “But the website also breaks this down in simple terms and language.”
The Roth IRA is a fairly new investment program for retirement. Created in the 1997 Taxpayer Relief Act, the Roth differs from a traditional IRA. Mr. Bloom takes a look at this as well a comparison blog. He explains why one IRA may be a better choice than the other.
“Taxes are a chief concern here. How the IRA is taxed now and taxed later is the biggest difference in the two retirement accounts. This should be a major factor in deciding which IRA is right,” he said.
Once someone has read through the website and gained an understanding of the Roth, then it is time to visit a financial investment company and talk with them about their specific terms.
“Ask about commissions, how often contributions may be made and what’s the policy for reporting contributions. These vary by investment company,” Mr. Bloom said.
