By |August 12th, 2015|

Quite often when discussing the virtues of the Roth IRA I am confronted by the same argument regarding retirement accounts.  “I want to save money, but I don’t want to wait until I’m old to enjoy it!”  This seems quite reasonable.  Who wants to set aside $5,500 every year only to see it again in 2045?
