Retirement Planning Starts Here

Retirement can mean different things to different people, and we understand that your goals are unique. Often times, the difference between succeeding or failing to achieve those goals is the result of an accumulation of small decisions made along the way. To make the right choices when faced with those decisions, it helps to have a plan in place.

Crafting a good retirement plan requires clearly defined goals, an honest assessment of where you are financially and the willingness to focus on the long term. Wealth Management by CommunityAmerica will work with you wherever you are on your journey to consider your dreams, evaluate your current financial situation and provide perspective to help make decisions for the future. Whether you’re just starting to save, nearing that retirement party or dealing with any of the transitional moments along the way, our Wealth Advisors are here to help you reach your goals.

With a number of savings options available, such as IRAs and annuities, we can work with you to develop a plan that allows you to accumulate, enjoy and, eventually, share what you worked so hard to build.

IRA Comparison

Piggy Bank with TRADITIONAL Written on It Icon

Traditional IRA

Contributions are tax-deductible1, and all taxes in an IRA are deferred, meaning you won’t pay taxes until you withdraw funds in retirement.
Piggy Bank with ROTH Written on It Icon

Roth IRA

Contributions to this type of account are made with after-tax dollars. So, when it’s time to withdraw your funds for retirement, it’s tax-free.

To Decide Which Option Is Best, Ask Yourself:

Do you expect to be in a similar tax bracket as where you are now when you withdraw funds? If so, a Traditional IRA may be your best option. You’ll save money in the near term and receive immediate tax benefits. If you expect to be in a higher tax bracket when withdrawing funds, a Roth IRA may be a better choice for you. Your contributions will come from after-tax dollars, so you won’t pay any taxes when it’s time to withdraw.
