Make your first financial decision in 2013 a smart one. Open an IRA with Betterment today and get on track to a comfortable retirement.
In 2012 we joined forces with the personal finance blogger community to deliver top content on what it takes to achieve your New Year’s resolutions - whether those goals are financial or personal in nature. After all, Betterment is all about guiding you to better decisions so you can, in turn, reach your goals and achieve the lifestyle you dream of.
This year we had the fortune of teaming up with an even larger community to share advice on not only what it takes to set and achieve your New Year’s resolutions, but also what it takes to set yourself up for many prosperous New Years to come.
With tax season now underway, our New Year’s resolutions are set and our eyes are on the future. How can we optimally use our saving, investing, and spending tactics to set ourselves up for the most comfortable - and tax efficient - life ahead, particularly in retirement?
Thanks to this year’s Blogging for a Better New Year we’ve learned to:
1. Consolidate our investing and saving accounts to save on fees and automate how we put funds aside for the future.
2. Bring the entire family into our financial resolutions to get them on board early and often with major life goals.
3. Set up and max out an IRA for a tax advantaged way to force ourselves to really achieve that “Retire to Hawaii” New Year’s resolution.
4. Stay motivated throughout the year, instead of just in January, by making things simple and automatic.
With this toolkit on hand we are off to a better 2013 and a better future. Special thanks to all of the bloggers who made Blogging for a Better New Year possible. And don’t forget to check back here throughout the year for some subtle reminders to keep you on track toward your long term goals.
