Don’t Lose Out…IRA Contributions
There is still time to make that IRA contribution!
(Visit my website: http://www.attorneybarbaradalvano.weebly.com for more articles)
Here is a very general breakdown: (Consult with your financial advisor/institution or attorney for all the rules).
If you have a Roth IRA or traditional IRA and you are over 50 you can contribute $6,500 per year into the IRA. Don’t miss the opportunity to contribute – up to the maximum.
Remember: If you reach 70 ½ in 2017…withdrawals from a traditional IRA are mandatory (or there will be penalties.) The financial institution where you have the IRA can assist you with specific questions and guidance.
At 70 1/2 years of age, there is no withdrawal requirement for Roth IRA, but again, consult with your financial institution for all the rules of the Roth IRA.
Special Note: Alimony is considered income. Not only do you have to claim it on your taxes, but since it is income – even if you are not working and receive alimony…alimony income can be used to fund an IRA. Again, check with a financial advisor/attorney in your specific situation.
Hint: Making automatic deposits into your IRA throughout the year can be a great way to ‘grow’ the IRA funds with less financial ‘pain.’
Final Note: IRA’s and other financial instruments are often a mainstay of Estate Planning. Make sure you know the beneficiary designations of each financial instrument and review them annually.
