Cherry Hill, NJ (PRWEB) July 10, 2014

For many baby boomers and seniors, an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is the largest financial asset they own. Knowing the best practices for effective IRA management, including dealing with required minimum distributions, is essential for maximizing someones financial security, according to experienced wealth planner Brent Meyer. For that need, Safe Money Resource has created a new, free guidebook for helping people understand their IRAs and the required minimum distributions associated with them.

According to, a required minimum distribution is the minimum amount an individual must withdraw from his or her IRA each year, as required by federal tax law. In general, people are required to begin making withdrawals from their account when they reach 70.5 years of age. They are able to withdraw more than the minimum amount set. However, there are many tax obligations and other important details of which to be aware. These policy components play a big role in determining how much someone is taxed, among other things.

To navigate the complexities of these account withdrawals, Safe Money Resources guidebook contains valuable information that addresses fundamental details such as how much one is taxed on their withdrawn amount. Other dynamics of importance include state income tax policy, minimum amounts to be withdrawn, and penalties of opting for non-withdrawal.

Any part of financial planning and management can be frustrating, since its so detailed and theres often so much involved. IRAs and required minimum distributions are no exception, and they can be challenging to fully understand and deal with, said Meyer, co-founder of Safe Money Resource. For instance, one important thing to keep in mind is that you cannot keep money in your IRA indefinitely. When you turn 70.5 years old, there are stringent standards that require you to withdraw money from your IRA by April 1 of the following year. Thats why weve put together this resourceto help you understand the ins-and-outs of your IRA obligations and how best to take care of them.

In the guidebook, baby boomers learn of many critical details, including:

  •     How much income tax you will have to pay on your IRA
  •     How much money you will have to take care out of your qualified plan and when
  •     What a qualified plan actually is
  •     The downsides of withdrawing the wrong amount
  •     Required minimum distribution standards for Roth IRAs
  •     And more

The guidebook can be found at Safe Money Resources website:

In addition to information on IRAs, functions as a one-stop center for investor education on the many other investor options available for a guaranteed lifetime income. These topics of coverage include annuities, life insurance, long-term care insurance, Social Security, retirement income planning, estate planning, and others.

Meyer started Safe Money Resource after he saw how many financial service professionals act for their own gain instead of their clients interest.
