Two popular retirement accounts that provide tax benefits when you invest are an individual retirement account (IRA) and a 401(k).

How much money do you need to retire comfortably in the USA?

Depending on how much you intend to spend in retirement, you will need a certain amount to retire. For example,

- What money are you willing to spend on travel, or

- Setting aside money for medical costs

Planning your retirement income can be challenging for many people, especially when they are decades away from retirement.

Realistic thinking is essential.  Retirement will certainly result in a reduction in some costs, but an increase in others. In particular, healthcare costs are projected to increase as people age. It is therefore best to keep a cushion for unforeseen expenses like that. Additionally, treat yourself well because retirement is your reward for years of hard work.

When should I start saving for retirement? 

You will need to have a specific amount of money saved by the time you retire, regardless of whether you intend to live lavishly or frugally. 

Consider this number as a mountain peak that can be reached by various distinct routes. If you've done everything properly up to this point, the top should still be in sight. You've taken the simplest and most direct route, so all that's left to do is keep moving in the same direction. However, if your funds aren't where they should be, it's like you've lost your bearings and must start climbing again in order to reach the top.

You must respond to three inquiries in order to determine your current financial coordinates:

- How much have I already saved?

- When will I be able to retire?

- How much of my annual income (if any) do I wish to replace?

Your ability to climb that mountain will depend on the answers to those questions. If you've saved a lot and you're still young, that's fantastic—you're doing great. Not so much if you haven't saved anything and are approaching retirement age.

How to reduce taxes using a Living Trust with TrulyWill?

The tax that is levied on a deceased person’s assets is known as an “ Estate tax”.

Estate Tax is applicable at the federal as well as State levels in some states. So, even if you are exempted from Federal tax, you might be required to pay the state-level tax in some states. 

The Federal Estate Tax exemption for the year 2022 ranges from 18%-40% and generally applies to assets over $12.06 million.

In the year 2023, this exemption will be $12.92 million.

A basic Revocable Living Trust does not avoid Estate Taxes. Its main objective is to avoid Probate only. The reason it is common among people is its flexibility. The Grantor can alter or add changes to it anytime before his death.  

There are several Irrevocable Living Trusts which avoid Estate taxes. AB Trust is a classical example of this. Read here to know more about how to reduce taxes using a Living Trust?
