According to David its every man or woman dream to have a successful career and retire at the age of 65 years and have ample time to enjoy the fruit of the labor without a barrier of a regular 9-5 after so many years of hard work and dedication.He says that on the other hand there is a group of people who see this as an impossible goal.
He argues that having enough savings so that you can retire early is an uphill task to to many people because many retire accounts will discipline you for withdrawing your savings too soon.
David Giertz offers the following tips towards achieving financial independence so that you can throw in the towel before social security checks start to arrive:
1.Crunching the numbers is of great importance to make sure your account is loaded enough before you go for retirement. Don’t underestimate the amount of money you have made for the last 35-45 years from the day you became an employee and started saving.Always aim to be saving six times your annual income by the age of 50 and ten times when you are 60 years. For a person considering to go for retirement he or she should save 13-14 times his or her income.For instance a person earning $100,000 annually would need to save between $1.3 and 1.5 million by age 65 and for a person intending to retire at 55 he or she will be required to save 33 times annually. Equally a person warning $100,000 would need to save around 3.3 million
2.When choosing flexible retirement plan one should note that if you withdraw money from retirement account before age 59 1/2 there is a likelihood you could be charged a 10% penalty.A person earning less than $118,000 a year is entitled for a Roth.Its optional to use a traditional IRA or 401(k) though will be charged at an early withdrawal fee.Roth let’s you access your contributions at any time, penalty free.Surprisingly a fee is charged to withdraw money to you have earned from your investment before you are 59 1/2 age.
