Over a third of Americans have no retirement savings, and many more may not have enough.2 Our tools and resources can help you take steps today that could give you the freedom to live the life you want tomorrow.
Invest early and often
Embrace your employer plan
You can contribute up to $18,500 in 2018 ($19,000 in 2019) a year on a tax-deferred basis right from your paycheck. Your employer might even chip in by matching part of your contribution.
Supplement and simplify
Consider tax-advantaged IRAs
An employer plan alone may not be enough. A Traditional or Roth IRA can be used to add to your retirement nest egg—or to start saving if a workplace option isn’t available to you.
Feed your IRA each year
You just opened your E*TRADE IRA (or maybe you already had one). Now it’s time to fund it.
- You can contribute up to $5,500 a year ($6,500 if you’re age 50 or older) for 2018 and up to $6,000 a year ($7,000 if you're age 50 or older) for 2019
- Remember, skipping a year may be costly, so try to be consistent if you can
Automate your contributions
Simplify saving for your retirement by setting up recurring transfers.
- Just have a specified amount automatically transferred into your IRA at set intervals
- Even small contributions can really add up—and you won’t miss the money
