The Importance of Retirement Planning
Whenever you undertake a major life change, it is important to think ahead. When you got married, you planned the wedding. When you opened your practice, you created a business plan. In the same way, it is important to lay a groundwork for your retirement. Creating a plan will ensure that you can retire right on schedule. It will also take the stress out of retirement, allowing you to cover unexpected medical bills and other expenses.
As a small business owner, retirement planning is even more crucial. It is up to you to secure your own retirement. You may also have to choose a pension plan that will benefit your employees and their families.
When Should You Start Planning for Retirement?
It is never too early to begin planning for retirement. In fact, the earlier you begin, the better. To ensure a financial security, you should begin saving in your 20’s. Even a few hundred dollars a month can help you create a sizeable nest egg several decades down the road. In addition, when you plan ahead, you can take advantage of certain tax benefits. Though retirement planning is important at all ages, it is essential when you open up your own practice. When you hire employees, you will need to choose benefit and retirement packages that will affect you and your entire team.
Choosing Your Retirement Plan
There are several different retirement plans from which you can choose. Our accountants can help you sort through the various options and select the right one for you. Choices include:
- Traditional IRA
- Roth IRA
- SEP IRA (Simplified Employee Pension)
- SIMPLE IRA (Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees).
- Defined benefit plan
