Any American who's been on the planet Earth for the past few months and is interested in personal finance has probably heard something about IRAs. For more details, read on. IRA stands for Individual Retirement Account, three little words that are destined to revolutionize how Americans save and plan for their retirement. The new rules governing IRAs go into effect January 1, 1982. This will mark the first time that these tax-sheltered IRAs will be available to all wage- earners, In the past, only those who were not covered by company pension plans were able to open IRAs and take advantage of their tax benefits. Most of what you've been reading probably talks about contributing $2,000 a year to an IRA. If you stopped reading when you saw the $2,000 figure, get ready to reconsider. You don't need to contribute $2,000 a year. Let's look at what you can expect if your financial situation doesn't allow you to save that much money. Many of us, if we really tried, could cut back our spending by $10 a week. (Maybe it means not going out one night or packing a lunch two days a week, but we could do it.) Actually, if you could save $9.62 a week, you could be saving $500 a year to contribute to your Individual Retirement Account, and $19.23 per week would allow a $1,000 per year con- tribution. A yearly contribution to your IRA of just $500 could result in an account wor- th more than $400,000 in 40 years. If you find that hard to believe, figure it out for yourself. For the purpose of this example, use a 12 percent simple In- terest rate compounded annually. Start with $500, multiply by 12 percent for one year, which is $60 in interest. For year two, add your $500 contribution to the $560 in the account from year one and multiply by 12 percent. Your second- year interest is $127.20 and your ac- count now totals $1,187.20. Continue this calculation and you will find that after 25 years you wi!~have contributed $12,500 and your account will total $74,667. The interest alone will be over $62,000. If you work 30 years, your account could reach $135,146, and 40 years brings you to $429,571. And remember, whatever your con- tribution, your IRA provides a tax shelter for that money. Your con- tribution is deducted from your gross income before you figure your taxes. The money cannot be withdrawn, without penalty, until you reach age 59 /z. However, you may keep the money in until age Then you must begin to withdraw it in specific amounts that will be based on life-expectancy tables and a percentage of the total amount in your account. Any money you withdraw after age 59 /2 will be taxed at the prevailing rate. Presumably you will be in a lower tax bracket in your retirement years.
