He has worked in many large organizations which include Nationwide Financial’s as the president, and Citigroup where he held several executive leadership positions.
David Giertz is also a certified business coach and often gives advice on financial matters. Recently, having paid a close attention to the millennial generation, Mr. Giertz has decided to share a worrisome observation he has made concerning their financial planning.
Though most American have been earning throughout their productive years, very few have managed to save money enough to allow them to lead comfortable lives on retiring. Most people may view retirement to be very expensive, which can be very true especially for individuals who face an early retirement and live long fun-filled and healthy lives. Sadly, some retirement savings for some individuals are barely enough to sustain them for a few years.
Another troubling issue is how most retiring people start emptying their Social Security funds way too early. This reduces the total amount supposed to be paid out by the Social Security program of the United States as well as lower monthly payments for those who don’t wait to reach the retirement age.
David Giertz says that retired or rather retiring people mostly do make some common mistakes. It is easier to save up money for retirement from an early age as compared to doing it just a few years to retirement. Giertz highlights a few things to note:
- Always remember the Roth Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA) contributions income limits.
Roth IRA is one of the common retirement accounts that is aided by the employer and run by the government. People make equal monthly contributions and one cannot exceed a certain limit in their contributions depending on the bracket they belong.
- Contribution limits for 401(k)
This is another saving account type that is operated by the U.S government.
- The Saver’s Credit
According to Giertz, this is an important account that should not be sidelined. It has a new annual contribution limit catering for the different levels.
- Deduction Limits for Internal Revenue Agency.
Giertz says that it’s hard for taxpayers to deduct IRA contributions from a certain years’ adjustable gross income if they fall back on the employer-provided retirement saving accounts.
