MOST OF US DREAM ABOUT RETIRING SOMEPLACE AND TAKING ITEASY. But we put off planning for it till tomorrow That's human nature. During the years we're making it, most of us are also spending it like there's no tomorrow And there won't be much of one, if there's too little to retire on. That's why you should open an Individual Retirement Account an IRA-with a member of the 1st Nationwide Network. An IRA is,first of all, an easy way to start saving. It takes just a few minutes to open.And the savings are obvious from the start.You can deduct all of your annual IRA contribution from your gross federal taxable income, within these limits: If you and yours both work, you can put away a combined total of $4000 each yearIf only one spouse works, up to $2250.And if you're one of a kind, you can sock away up to $2000. Then when it's time to retire, even Uncle Sam should take it easy If you're in a lower income tax bracket, you're likely to pay less.And chances are, a Network member will be close by The 1st Nationwide Network, you see, is an association of financial independents, with more members in more states than any other net work of our kind in the nation?
