President Obama MyRA Proposal Would Negatively Impact American Retirees, According to IRA Financial Group
by BWW News Desk - Jan 30, 2014

On January 28, 2014, in his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama indicated that he is directing the Treasury Department to create a new type of retirement savings account for millions of Americans that would include a government guarantee. These investments, which Mr. Obama called "myRAs," would serve as a type of starter retirement savings account for millions of Americans. The accounts, called "myRAs," would be structured like savings bonds and the investments would be backed by the federal government. Because the investments would be structured like savings bonds, there would be principal protection, meaning the account balance couldn't go down. According to Adam Bergman, a tax partner with the IRA Financial Group, "The White House didn't offer detailed information of how the retirement account would be structured, but indicated it would be relatively low risk, meaning the returns would also be fairly low."
