AUSTIN, Texas — The annual retirement investment that’s expected to boost your 401(k) retirement fund’s total return over time, while reducing your taxable income and increasing your nest egg, may not be worth it for you.
A new study published in the April issue of the journal Applied Economic Analysis shows that, as long as your 401k is investing in stocks, bonds, real estate and other assets, the value of the asset is generally growing.
But even if you can put more money into an asset, it may not pay dividends over time.
For example, if your 401K invested in real estate, you’d get an annual return of about 2.5%, the study found.
But if you invested in bonds and other bonds, you would only get about 1.5%.
The research was based on an analysis of financial records of 4.5 million workers, ages 50 and older, who were enrolled in the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS).
The study used data from the Social Security Administration (SSA) to calculate how much workers’ contributions to their 401(ks) have grown over time and then averaged that over the past decade.
It was the first time researchers analyzed how long it takes for these annual gains to accumulate.
The study found that, even with the same annual investment, 401( k)s in the years ahead would be expected to lose more money than those invested in stocks.
The average 401(kt) contribution to the SSA in 2020 was $7,900.
The average annual return was 3.9%, the researchers found.
That’s less than the 2.7% annual growth in the SPA’s index fund, which averaged 5.7%.
The average return in the index fund over the last 10 years is 3.5% and the average annual gain is 1.8%.
The results suggest that a 401(kr) that invests in stocks and bonds is not worth the investment.
The investment, when it comes to annual growth, is not likely to grow at a faster rate than the SPSA index fund in the decades ahead.
The authors of the study say their findings are important to encourage investors to invest in stocks rather than bonds.
But they caution that there are exceptions to the rule.
For example, some 401( rds)s that are invested in property have an even larger annual return than the index funds.
For the SFSSA, the average return over the decade was 7.4%, and the SRS fund average was 1.4%.
But, the researchers said, these differences are only due to the size of the individual investment.
For a 401k that is invested in other assets and bonds, there may be a higher overall return, they said.
What’s more, the results of the new study suggest that investors should look for a combination of investment types to better match their needs.
Some investments that are not stock, bond or real estate investments may be better choices than others.
For instance, if you are buying a house, the SSPA index funds may be the better choice because they will grow at the same rate as the SBS index funds over the next decade.
But you might want to consider the SES and SSA indexes, because the SSS funds are more stable over time as their investment portfolio grows.
The report comes at a time when many people are focusing on the long-term benefits of 401( s) investments.
The Federal Reserve Board is now reviewing how to make the investment more affordable, particularly for low- and moderate-income workers, and the Obama administration has been pushing Congress to reduce taxes on 401(s) contributions.
In this year’s tax reform package, Congress is proposing to eliminate a $10,000 cap on contributions for low and moderate income workers.
The savings that the tax cuts would bring to Americans are significant.
According to the Tax Policy Center, the $10.4 trillion tax cut would reduce the federal budget deficit by $1.2 trillion over the course of the next 10 years.
But some experts say that the overall savings will be short-lived.
“If you invest in bonds, stocks or real estates, you’re just taking money out of the economy,” said Paul Wiedemann, the chief investment officer at Wealth Management Advisors.
“That’s not what you want to do.
I think it’s really important to take a broader perspective.
Do you want a return on your investment that is growing over time?
Or do you want the returns to grow more slowly?
The study also found that the average 401k’s overall portfolio growth rate was about 3.7%, which is still well below the 6.8% average growth in index funds across the SERS.
This is because, unlike index funds, the 401( kh)s portfolio is diversified enough to keep up with market changes, according to the study.
