The 19 Sources of Retirement Income: Roth IRA Income
In this roth income limits episode, John continues his series on the 19 Sources of Retirement Income, explaining how to create a tax-advantaged income stream from your Roth IRA in retirement.
Don’t miss John’s key points:
- Roth IRAs, unlike traditional IRAs, provide tax-free income in retirement.
- Withdrawals from traditional IRAs, by contrast, are taxed according to your regular income tax bracket.
- A Roth IRA is a powerful tool. The money you put into it grows tax-free, and your distributions in retirement are not taxed.
- If you want to wait to use that income, you can: Roth IRAs have no Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs)—unlike a traditional IRA. That means you can let your money compound from the age of 50 to 100+, and never have to take any money out.
- There are income caps on Roth IRAs, so another good option is an employer-sponsored Roth 401(k). This has no income caps and much higher caps on contributions than a Roth IRA.
- The sole purpose of tax deferral is to defer from a high bracket to a low bracket. If you end up in a higher tax bracket in retirement than you are right now, your traditional IRA may not serve you well.
