much as $110,000 lower that's how important compoundin is. and oiding, lllet's say e tax defd ture of the ing. on have tpay taxesn your 4(k) mey ce that's when u decideo thdrawt. th's when taxes ordinary income a since u'll lely beretired then, most o you will e up paying a lower rate than if you had been taxed on the higher rate levels so tt's o mor reason to like 401(k) pla.e second, many, b not all emoys will match or partially match your 401(k) contributions. in other words, for every dollar you inst in your 401(k)plan, your employer might throw in 50 cents up to a ceain int tat isree money. d you must almost never want to walkaw fm free y. especially again, when is aso untaxed. but ifou don't getfree money fr your employer for contributing ta 401(k), i think it's auch le compelling option, fnkly. as i said befo, there are a lot of things about a 401(k) plan tt caneelybad. which is why if aga y don't get a matchrom your employer,
ve for rirent via the indi requirementaccount, or a. the same exact tax deferre stats a401(yo can only ntribute 5500 or 65 i you're er50. en y chae job youan roll over alth money in your 40k) to an ira. that'sxactly wat you should do every time you switch employs or fin yrself out of work. whdo think an ira is a better option? 401(k) plansary widely from company to company. some ge you terrifi range o choices andven you pick indidual stocks. t ma more mpans gi y a 401(k) plawith lited option sometimes you only get to cho betwn a dozen, maybe a couple dozen at most different mutu fus. so for those o you who can't pick your own stocksh yo 401(k), my number one rule fore you contribute money t your 401(k) plan, haveo make se it gives you th o putyo cash into something tha is actually worth investing in. ll make th very simple. you can't pick your own stos in a 1(k), then you want a nice low expense index fund tha mimics the s&p 500. howevef your 401(k) don't

i spent living in my 1978 ford fairmont. i sure wish i had an expert to guide through all this stuff way ck then. so let me answer one ofhe mo important questither what the heckhod young people do with their oney? first and remost alws, u ne to inst that thenly way you'reng to be able to achieve financial freedo by freedom, what imean is livi a life where you're not totally 0% dendent on your paycheck. i'm alway thrilled when i see members of the younger demograpwhe taking an own money. too many people s saving and investing way too late that makes their liv a lot more dficu than ey need to . but ilso kno ung op fl kehey have all the in the wo many moretart iting bfore they'r truly ready when they arn fact betr thingsor em to doinstuff with thmoney. so we have to really drill wn. is i'm going to give you three lessons, and a caveat forl coege. t's start wi thecavea
investigatg,ou nee t pay f your credit card debt. thissomethg ientiod before.but 'sspeciay trueor unople,particular nccredit car cpaes have gotten really agsiut offering cret to college students. no mte h muchone y ra up inhe stocmarket,f you're carrying a balance on ur credicard'soing to eat into your returns. i know this myself firsthd. and ng-term the intest on thcredit cards will probably grter than t profits you can make fro vesting. at ln a percentagbasis. soust pay your darncrit cardalance in full every nth. automa it with your cedit card company. yoll be tempted noto. i can't defeat that credit cd debt with n matter how my great stock ideas i hav on the show thlessons fo young investorrst, this is really for allg opho recently graduate and act for everne o there, rardless of a and edgendition leve u need the savne but iecogniot everyone has annhent edispotion t sa. can't all b natural cheapstes. ani acowledge that telling you to save over andver agai
however, the stock mket is a great way the trick yoursel into savi apart of yr paycheckt youight otherwe spen insting in stoks can actuall beot of fun. we ied thaon the show.we try t do someentertainment within the teaching, ereas aving moneyn a savin account or sticking it in a deposit els kif joyless for a lot of people. not menti that the returns so-so smal that they'ryes, inde, i'll use the word meaningless. ifounvestigate your snaifgs the market it will be a lot easier to resist the tion to snd ttoneyn things th you might not eed. because it will be sitng in stocks that yo like. you' he to sell t stocks getur mon beco. and there is a naral predilecti to not se once you bu not only is tis a terrif way to t yoself into saving, but also t a aantage ing the smartest place put yourmoney traditional savingicles money maet funds, w you seethe rates? ch them ery week,ds, ey ve you hardly any retut all. it's a wte when the h could

ira, or for you to go a ro, whic is a term i'm su you'veeard couleimes but y not undstand. i know i taed endlessly about the benefits usingn individual retiment account and a 401(k plan to iestor retirement i'm not ing to beat a dead horse here. this is thsubject i get a ton of quest about. should i put mymoney in a rot account or a regularone? so why don'te start with a roth ireaira. itay be the single greatest thing our government sone for low-inme famils since the en of hewarn povert which at best ended in a dra verty pssibly winning. told you how about a regular ira lets you take preincome tax vested and then your ga after year,ade after decade totally tax-free until you decide to witraw that moy whenou retire. a roth ira s different.with the roth, u ma contributions with after tax income.
regular ira, ttg mone into aoth won't decrease your tax bill. on the other hand, once your moy is in a roth ira, you will ner y taxes on it again. as lg as your caremai in your account, you don't pay catagains tax. you don't pay divides tax. when you withdraw it which you ndo whout penal ag 59 1/2,ou don'tay y income tax on yur widrawal. is is fabulo in other wor, with roth, you y taxes now that youon't have to p income tax 30 40 yes om nowhen you retire. ther o more positive point about roth. youan withdraw the money you' invested, note your gains, justhe amount you contributed anyou won't ge hit with 10% penalty,s what happens whenou to withdraw money from a regular ira before yo hit that magic age of 59 that's veryifferent from a regular iere you don't pay anyax or contributionsnow, and yo gains don't get ted within the account. but once you start whdrawing the money, every penny you out is taxeds ordinary income.
toecideetween a rra and (k) a regular ira and 401(k), you're basically ciding whether itmakes mo sense to pay income ta n wth a roth or pay income tax ce you retire with regu account. yohave to figure out if you'll be in the higher tax bet after you retire or aow one. this is a complicated estion and has a lot todo whhe ecifics of your situation, ur career how old y are. auick rule thumb. for anyone'arginal taxate is 25% orless, wics mos of erica, i thiou oht to go wi a . bettere take the hi up front aowr roth ira compound x- the rest of your life. remember, for those wh doha to pick their o diveied portfolios of sa ve ten stocks, park your retirement money in a low cost indexundhat mirrors the s&p 500. as you get oer, you caadd meonds. burll until you reire, stoc should make up the majori of yur investment. i noticed this bore.
