The Only Way to Earn TWO Checks for the Rest of Your Life, Guaranteed
Most of us expect to receive a social security check for the
rest of our lives, but why not receive your social security check andanother check guaranteed, for the rest of your life?The only way to receive this second check is
via a guaranteed lifetime income payment using an annuity.
Most annuity carriers offer a rider that enables you to
receive a guaranteed lifetime income payment, and this payment is based on the
funds that you have accumulated over time.The accumulated funds grow at a guaranteed
annual growth rate and depending on the age that you decide to begin receiving
payments, you receive a set percentage of the accumulation funds for the rest
of your life.Most carriers also offer a
joint life option that enables a surviving spouse to continue receiving the
lifetime income payments after one of the spouses passes away.
In addition to offering the only guaranteed lifetime income
payment option, annuities also offer significant tax benefits.When the lifetime income payments begin, a
tax exclusion ratio is applied to the payments which means only 5-25% of the
payout is subject to taxes.This is
significant because social security recipients need to shelter as much income as
possible to retain more of their social security benefits.
Call me to set up an annuity with a guaranteed lifetime
income payment that will supplement your social security payment and provide
you with two checks for the rest of your life.It’s your money . . . until you give it away.

retirement benefits until age 70, when they are as high as can be.

How to Move Your 401(k)/IRA and Avoid the 10% Penalty
If you have ever
received a distribution from your 401(k), 403(b), IRA, you not only paid taxes
on that distribution, you also paid a 10% penalty for withdrawing “your” money
if you were not 59 ½ or older.If you
want more control of your retirement funds and want to move your 401(k)/IRA
without incurring the 10% penalty, the IRS allows a 72t distribution via Internal Revenue Code Section 72(t)(2)(A)(iv)
– known as Series of Substantially Equal Periodic Payments – SOSEPP.Once you start a 72t distribution/SOSEPP, you
must take an annual distribution
from your 401(k)/IRA for the longer of five years or until you reach age 59 ½
There are three methods you
can use to determine the amount of the distribution from your 401(k)/IRA, and
all three are based upon the balance of the 401(k)/IRA account and your age.Method one is the Required Minimum
Distribution method which is based upon your account balance at the end of the
previous year, divided by the life expectancy factor from a life expectancy
table.Method two is the Fixed
Amortization Method which involves using your 401(k)/IRA balance to create an
amortization schedule over a specified number of years. The number of years for
your calculation is equal to your life expectancy factor from a life expectancy
table.Method three is the Fixed
Annuitization Method, and it involves the use of your 401(k)/IRA balance and
annuity factor set by the IRS.
You might want to
transfer your balance from your 401(k)/IRA for several reasons namely 1) you
want full control and use of your retirement funds 2) you anticipate federal
income tax rates will increase to pay down the deficit, and you want to avoid
the higher taxes 3) you are approaching retirement and no longer want to expose
your retirement savings to potential significant losses in the stock market.
If you need to execute a
72t distribution to a safer, more tax favorable vehicle, call me to set an appointment.It’s your money . . . until you give it away.
