This week on the tipping point: Investing over a lifetime
Financial planning is a journey, not a destination. Here at Payne Capital Management, we’ve found that each age represents an important landmark as it relates to your financial independence. What should you be thinking about at those different stages of your financial journey? Here’s a quick look, but listen to the episode for a full breakdown!
Your twenties are the hardest time to invest because you’re trying to buy big things like a car or a house, and you’re just starting out in your career. But, it’s the best time to get into the habit of automating your savings. Small investments in your 20s will pay off BIGTIME down the road.
In your 30s you typically start to create a little more wealth. You’re a little further along in your career, money starts to get bigger, and the decisions you have to make get a bit more serious. You’ll want to have a plan not just for your creation of wealth, but also for the preservation of wealth. You should also create an estate plan, you want to have a will when you’re in your 30s.
When you get into your 40s, the stakes only get higher. This is when you should start thinking about streamlining your finances. You may have a couple of 401k plans from different employers. Perhaps an advisor who’s giving you advice on your IRAs, maybe a brokerage account with somebody else. Consolidating all those finances and getting a streamlined game plan is the key when you get into your 40s.
Your 50’s are what we call the financial red zone. It’s a time where you’re able to maximize your contributions. Sometimes you can’t do it when you’re younger, so in your 50’s, you want to make sure that you catch up with everything and that you’re prepared for the day where you’re not going to have that paycheck coming in.
In your 60’s you’re retired or getting close. Your 401k or retirement plan is likely a huge part of your net worth. The nice thing is if you’re 59-1/2, for a lot of plans, you can do an in-service distribution. You can roll the money out of the plan with no tax, put it into an individual retirement account for yourself, and invest in a more customized way. You’ll also want to start looking into things like Roth conversions because at age 72 you have to start taking money out of those pre-tax accounts.
This week’s hidden facts of finance
If the US taxes all Americans at 100% there will still be an $8 trillion federal budget deficit. I think our deficit is a problem. What an inconvenient truth! If they confiscate all the billionaires’ money today, we won’t even meet the current spending proposals. That’s very unfortunate when you run out of billionaires. If the billionaires don’t have any money to pay the taxes, guess who they’ll be coming for? Taxes are going higher. So do your tax planning this year. Don’t wait.
