IRA owners don't play around

Most are very serious about having a thorough retirement plan

Individual Retirement Account (IRA) owners handle their nest eggs with care. In fact, they have detailed strategies that include such things as setting aside emergency funds, developing a retirement income plan, reviewing insurance policies, determining retirement expenses and determining when to take Social Security. That's according to the Investment Company Insitutute's new report, "The Role of IRAs in U.S. Households' Saving for Retirement, 2013."

The study says many IRA owners (63 percent) seek help from a financial advisor when creating such a strategy. “Our research consistently finds that IRA owners are good stewards of their money, building substantial financial assets,” said Sarah Holden, ICI’s senior director of retirement and investor research. “This study highlights the thoughtful and thorough approach that IRA-owning households take in preparing for their retirement. They are making informed decisions and are typically making retirement-related withdrawals.”
