Take The Fear Out Of Retirement With Wise Investing

The unfortunate truth

for many people trying to survive in these uncertain economic times is that they are approaching retirement age without an adequate financial safety net.

According to a recent Wells Fargo client survey,

the retirement future of many Americans looks bleak. Some of the results of that poll are:

  • More than half not yet retired Americans (53%) do not think they will have enough retirement savings to live the retirement lifestyle they want.
  • 30% of Americans say that in living comfortably in their retirement will require working until they are at least eight years old, though 73% of them say that their employers would not want workers in their 80’s.
  • Seventy percent of those questioned say they will continue to work when retired, 39% say it will be financially necessary.

    Now is the time to make your certain that the value of your retirement investment is not based on the economic fluctuations of paper based assets. A safer option is to diversify and increase the value of your portfolio by investing in precious metal IRA’s such as gold and silver.

    A physical precious metals IRA

    offers same the security and safety of a traditional IRA such as deferred income tax or avoidance of capital gains tax. These are physical metals IRAs. They allow you to store your money in the form of bullion, a tangible asset which is a safe hedge against inflation and other financial risks. Gold, silver and other precious metals have steadily gained in value since 2001 and all signs indicate they will continue to do so. Not so for paper currency which continues to lose value.

    With a physical metals IRA

    you can protect against not only inflation and the weakening dollar but rising interest rates, bank defaults and the volatility of stocks.
    If you are considering a retirement investment, don’t wait. Now is the time to begin securing a worry-free future.
