September 22, 2023

If you’re on track to max out on your 401(k), it’s a huge accomplishment, so congratulations! If you’re one of the few who’s been able to stash away the full $22,500/year allowed by the IRS, there are still other investment options you can start to take advantage of now so you have greater financial security later.

Here are a few ways to supplement your 401(k) contributions while enjoying possible tax benefits in the process:

Roth and Traditional IRAs - Save for retirement with tax-free growth or on a tax-deferred basis

Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) - Tax-advantaged account for high-deductible medical plans

Universal Life Insurance - Cash value policy that grows tax-deferred and may pay out tax-free

529 College Savings Plan - College savings plan that offers tax benefits

Investment Accounts - Outside of traditional retirement saving accounts, you can invest after-tax dollars and earmark those for retirement savings
