How much do you know about IRAs? You probably only heard about it or you may be a regular IRA investor but, really don’t know much about the role it plays on retirement success. How often do you logon to your online IRA account? How often do you open the mailer containing your IRA account statement? Let’s admit there’s a need to learn more, especially if you’re not an IRA investor yet.
First let’s talk about the basic things first, what you most probably already know. Namely, that retirement investing can be confusing. You know that it takes just a few seconds of talking about market cycles, redistribution, indicators, and various other investment speak to have you running for the hammock. And we haven’t even mentioned IRAs, distributions, safe havens, or tax deferred paperwork. (“Honey, seriously, I’m going to take care of it on Sunday.”)
