3 Reasons to Follow Through on an IRA in 2018

It’s kind of like that gym membership. You always have the best of intentions to sign up, show up and shape up. But it doesn’t always go that way.

Life gets in the way: family obligations, work, time, finances, energy.

But you know you should join … and you will … you’re sure.

The same goes for important financial decisions. Whether it’s investing, saving or putting together a budget. You know you should do it, but the follow through is more difficult than the intention.

We all realize the importance of retirement savings. It’s like getting into physical shape but with your finances. It’s preparing for the future when the future will arrive before you know it.

One day you’re taking the kids to soccer practice and band rehearsal, and the next day you’re seated in a crowded auditorium as the high school valedictorian waxes poetically about what the last 12 years meant and what the next 60 years will bring.

So, if you’re ready to prepare for your financial future—or just make a couple small changes to your already solid plan—we hope to encourage you with these three reasons to make 2018 the year you follow through on an IRA.

1. It’s easier than you think.

Sometimes we create barriers in our head—especially with financial decisions—that make things seem more difficult than they are. Too much time, too much paperwork, too many decisions about things I don’t know the answer to.

Opening—or rolling over—an IRA with CIF is simple and easy. It only takes minutes, and we’ll help!

2. No ongoing maintenance fees.

You read that right. No ongoing maintenance fees!

You don’t have to worry about fees to get set-up or fees that recur regularly along the way. We’ll help you get set-up and then you’re set!

3. Your investment has eternal impact.

When you invest with CIF, part of the return goes to fund loans to churches to increase classroom space for Vacation Bible School, build recreation centers that serve communities and expand sanctuary capacities to accommodate growing congregations.

These projects help demonstrate Christ’s love and grow His Kingdom. Like we said, eternal impact.

If you’re ready to make 2018 the year you make planning for the future a reality—or just make some enhancements to your current plan—give us a call at 800.995.8574, email us at service@christianinvestors.org, complete the Contact Us form or simply work through the How to Invest form on our website.

Regardless of which method you choose, we’re here to help!

 

We will assist you with completing the application forms and providing information about our Certificates. However, we don’t provide investment advice or financial planning. You are encouraged to consider the concept of investment diversification when determining the amount of investment certificates that would be appropriate for you in relation to your overall investment portfolio and personal financial needs. You should make an independent decision about whether purchasing investment certificates will aid you in accomplishing your investment objectives and whether the investment certificates fit within your financial risk tolerance. Consultation with an appropriately licensed financial and tax adviser is recommended.
