Have an Employer-Sponsored Retirement Plan? Why it Might Not Be Enough

By Heather Taylor0 Comments

If you’re counting on your employer-sponsored 401(k) to get you through retirement, you might want to think again, according to Jeff Rose.

In an article for U.S. News and World Report, Rose says most Americans don’t have enough saved for retirement, even if they have a retirement savings plan through an employer. Adding an IRA as a money-saving vehicle could help some savers live more comfortably in retirement.

Many people don’t realize that the ability to choose your own investments stretches beyond stocks, bonds or mutual funds. With self-directed IRAs, investments can include real estate, notes, tax liens, and many other things.
