Time for Gen-Xers to Put IRAs to Work

Submitted by Jim Stiles
Edward Jones Financial Advisor

If you’re a “Gen-Xer,” born between 1965 and 1980, you’ve still got many years to go until you retire. At this stage of your life, what can you do to help build resources for the retirement lifestyle you’ve envisioned?

Besides having time on your side, you’ve got another key advantage in saving for retirement — specifically, you probably haven’t reached your peak earning years. This helps you in at least two ways. First, of course, it means you should be able to increase your retirement savings in the future. And second, it might mean you’re still eligible to contribute to one of the most effective retirement accounts available — the Roth IRA.

The lean mean sea of green.  Live postgame interview with Rachel Steinhoff

The sea of green rocked the Hearnes Center while New Haven shattered Marceline’s 15-game winning streak, advancing into the Class 2 State Championship

The picturesque field of Shamrocks brought back memories of when New Haven rocked it at the Hearnes Center in 1997, 99, 98, 2001, 2002 during championship play.  This year’s win against Marceline gives the Lady Shamrocks another shot at their unfinished business after finishing second behind Harrisburg last year.
