1 Your 403(b). Made better. A unique opportunity for tax-free retirement income. Your future. Made easier.
2 The Roth 403(b) contribution option. I m ready to Roth. I m still more of a traditional type.
3 Is it right for you? Your employer has enhanced your 403(b) plan to give you even more flexibility! Your plan now includes the Roth 403(b) feature. This option doesn t change how much you can contribute. Nor does it change where you can invest. What it really does is give you more control over when your contributions and retirement income will be subject to federal income tax. If you choose to contribute to the Roth option, those contributions will be subject to income taxes before they re invested in your 403(b) account. In exchange, though, you may be able to withdraw your contributions and any earnings tax-free when you retire which could mean more retirement income. In short, you d be trading a current tax benefit for a future tax benefit. So does this trade-off make sense for you? It primarily depends on whether you think your federal income tax rate will be higher at retirement, or lower. Let s take a closer look. I ll take both. You should consider the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses of the investment options carefully before investing. Prospectuses containing this and other information can be obtained by contacting your local representative. Please read carefully before investing.
4 Would you rather pay taxes later? Compare the Traditional 403(b)... Now: Pay no income taxes on contributions during your working years. Later: Pay taxes when you withdraw during retirement. Money going in: (contributions) Earnings, if any: Pre-tax contributions are deducted from your salary before taxes are taken. That can reduce your taxable income. Grow tax-deferred until withdrawn. Money coming out: (distributions) Money moving on: (rollovers) Distributions are taxable as current income when withdrawn. Rollovers allowed to another Traditional 403(b), governmental 457(b), 401(a)/(k) or Traditional or Roth IRA. Required minimum If you are retired, minimum distributions distributions: required beginning at age 70 1 /2.
5 Or get them out of the way now? with the Roth 403(b). Now: Later: Pay income taxes on contributions as you make them. Money going in: (contributions) Earnings, if any: Money coming out: (distributions) Money moving on: (rollovers) Required minimum distributions: Withdraw savings tax-free during retirement. After-tax contributions are subject to federal (and where applicable, state, and local) income tax withholding. Grow tax-free as long as certain qualifying conditions are met (see below). Tax-free distributions, as long as you ve satisfied the five-year holding period and are age 59 1 /2 or older, disabled or deceased. Rollovers allowed to another Roth account in a 403(b) or 401(k) or Roth IRA. If you are retired, minimum distributions required beginning at age 70 1 /2. However, you can roll over your Roth 403(b) to a Roth IRA, where minimum distributions are not required. ING does not offer legal or tax advice. Consult with your tax and legal advisors regarding your individual situation. This material is not intended to be used to avoid tax penalties, and was prepared to support the promotion or marketing of the matter addressed in this document. The taxpayer should seek advice from an independent tax advisor. Whichever 403(b) option you choose, you ll enjoy these key benefits. Investing convenience. You can put money aside using automatic payroll deductions. Investment flexibility. You can select from the same competitive fixed account options and/or well-known variable investment options. Higher contribution limits. You can contribute more through your employer s plan than you can in an individual retirement account (IRA) you set up on your own.
6 So, which option is right for you? Jeff (Age 45): Wants current tax break Jeff considers himself in his peak earning years. He knows he won t be making this money forever, but wants to enjoy it while he can. Doesn t think he can afford to lose another tax deduction at this point Doesn t really like change anyway Expects to be in a lower tax bracket when he retires Linda (Age 25): Wants long-term tax-free growth Linda just got out of grad school and is embarking on her new career. She feels good about the fact she s already starting to build up her savings. Isn t worried about the tax deduction now Confident her salary will increase over the years to come Expects to be in a higher tax bracket when she retires COMPARING JEFF S OPTIONS: Traditional Pre-tax 403(b) Roth After-tax 403(b) Gross income: $75,000 $75,000 Annual salary available to save: $10,000 $10,000 Less taxes at 25% 1 : -$0 -$2,500 Net yearly contribution $10,000 $7,500 (totals over 20 years: $200,000 $150,000) Value at retirement (assumes 20 years of contributions at 6%) $378,900 $284,200 Less taxes at 15% 2 : -$56,800 -$0 After-tax value: $322,100 $284,200 CONSIDERING: Traditional 403(b) COMPARING LINDA S OPTIONS: Traditional Pre-tax 403(b) Roth After-tax 403(b) Gross income: $35,000 $35,000 Annual salary available to save: $3,000 $3,000 Less taxes at 25% 1 : -$0 -$750 Net yearly contribution $3,000 $2,250 (totals over 40 years: $120,000 $90,000) Value at retirement (assumes 40 years of contributions at 6%) $478,200 $358,700 Less taxes at 33% 2 : -$159,500 -$0 After-tax value: $318,700 $358,700 CONSIDERING: Roth 403(b) Note: These are hypothetical illustrations for demonstration purposes only. They are not intended to (1) serve as financial advice or as a primary basis for investment decisions and (2) imply the performance of any specific security. Contributions are subject to Internal Revenue Code limits. Systematic investing does not ensure a profit nor guarantee against loss. Investors should consider their ability to invest consistently in up as well as down markets. This example does not represent any specific product, nor does it reflect sales charges or other expenses that may be required for some investments. After tax value of traditional 403(b) assumes a one time lump sum distribution.
7 There are many reasons why a Roth 403(b), a Traditional 403(b) or a combination of both might be right for you. A lot depends on when you expect to be in a higher tax bracket now or when you retire. You ll also need to factor in your current financial situation, future goals and personal attitudes as well as these scenarios illustrate. Traditional Pre-tax 403(b) Roth After-tax 403(b) Gross income: $175,000 $175,000 Annual salary available to save: $16,500 $24,800 Less taxes at 33% 1 : -$0 -$8,300 3 Net yearly contribution $16,500 $16,500 (totals over 15 years: $247,500 $247,500) Value at retirement (assumes 15 years of contributions at 6%) $395,600 $395,600 Less taxes at 33% 2 : -$144,500 -$0 After-tax value: $263,700 $395,600 CONSIDERING: Roth 403(b) Brian (Age 50): Wants to maximize contributions and tax-free income Brian is established in his career and makes a great salary. He thinks he ll be able to live on less when he retires, yet is eager to maximize his retirement income. Unable to contribute to a Roth IRA (his income exceeds the Roth IRA limits) Likes the idea of tax-free retirement income, previously unavailable for the highly compensated Already contributes the max to his 403(b) plan ($16,500 for 2010) and can afford to spend more COMPARING BRIAN S OPTIONS: COMPARING WANDA S OPTIONS: Traditional Pre-tax 403(b) Roth After-tax 403(b) Gross income: $60,000 $60,000 Annual salary available to save: $6,000 $6,000 Less taxes at 25% 1 : -$0 -$1,500 Net yearly contribution $6,000 $4,500 (totals over 10 years: $60,000 $45,000) Value at retirement (assumes 10 years of contributions at 6%) $81,500 $61,100 Less taxes at 25% 2 : -$20,400 -$0 After-tax value: $61,100 $61,100 CONSIDERING: Wanda (Age 55): Wants tax flexibility now and in retirement Wanda likes the idea of tax-free retirement income, but also likes her current tax deduction. And she doesn t have a clue where taxes are headed in the future! Is getting close to retiring, but not that close Wants the flexibility to optimize her tax strategy year-to-year as she withdraws retirement income Likes hedging her bets Combination of Traditional 403(b) and Roth 403(b) 1 Based on current federal tax rates as of Assumed rates designed to illustrate impact of lower and higher tax rates in retirement. 3 $8,300 in taxes paid annually for 15 years approximately $124,500
8 Pay taxes now versus later? Is that the deal? Note: The more yes boxes you check in the list on the next page, the more you may want to consider the Roth 403(b) option...
9 Basically. A good deal for some... but not necessarily for all. Plan to work quite a few more years before you retire? Yes No Think your tax rate will be higher by the time you retire? Yes No Willing to swap a current tax break for a longer-term tax benefit? Yes No Can you afford to spend more of your annual salary now so you can contribute the same to your after-tax Roth 403(b) as you would to your pre-tax 403(b)? Yes No Like the idea of diversifying your tax strategy, just like you diversify your investment strategy? Yes No Focused on passing as much as possible to your heirs? Yes No Do you currently max-out your pre-tax contributions? Yes No
10 Still have more questions? What is the five-year rule? It determines when you can take tax-free income. You can withdraw money from your Roth 403(b) tax-free as long as you satisfy this five-year rule and meet certain events for taking a distribution. To make a tax-free withdrawal from your Roth 403(b), your first Roth 403(b) contribution must have been made to your employer's 403(b) plan at least five years ago and you must be at least age 59 1 /2, become disabled, or die. Special rules apply to rollovers. I m young and currently in a low tax bracket, but I expect my earnings to grow. Is the Roth 403(b) right for me? It could be. The longer you can leave your money in your Roth 403(b) and the higher you expect your taxes to be in the future, the more you may be able to benefit from the tax-free income a Roth 403(b) can provide in the future. I may retire in a few years. Is the Roth 403(b) right for me? That depends on when you plan to start tapping into your 403(b) savings. To qualify for tax-free income from a Roth 403(b), remember you have to satisfy the five-year rule explained above. So, to make a tax-free withdrawal from your Roth 403(b), you have to be at least age 59½, become disabled or die and have made the initial Roth 403(b) contribution made to your employer's 403(b) plan at least five years ago. I heard this option may expire in a few years. Is that true? No. The Roth 403(b) is a provision of the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001, which was originally set to expire in However, Congress has made this provision permanent under the Pension Protection Act of I understand the tax differences between the Traditional and Roth 403(b) contribution options. How will taxes affect my employer's match (if my plan provides)? Both Traditional and Roth 403(b) contributions are eligible for an employer match if your plan provides. The match will be held in a separate pre-tax account and treated as a pre-tax contribution and the earnings will grow tax deferred. You will pay taxes on your employer match as well as the earnings on that match when you withdraw during retirement.
11 Why should I consider the Roth 403(b) instead of a Roth IRA? How will contributing to a Roth 403(b) affect my take-home pay? Three key reasons. 1. Not everyone can qualify for a Roth IRA. You can t contribute if your adjusted gross income exceeds a certain amount (in 2010, $166,000 if you file a joint tax return with your spouse; $105,000 if you file your tax return as single, head of household or married filing separately). 2. You can contribute significantly more to a Roth 403(b) than you could to a Roth IRA (if eligible). For 2010, participants can contribute up to $16,500 to a Roth 403(b) ($22,000 if age 50 or older and additional amounts may be contributed by certain longer-service employees). But they can only contribute $5,000 to an individual Roth IRA ($6,000 if over age 50). 3. If your employer matches your 403(b) contributions, you should contribute to a Roth 403(b) to capitalize on these matches. How are my Social Security benefits affected in retirement? Keep in mind that your Social Security benefits are taxed if you exceed certain income limits. Distributions from a Traditional 403(b) count as taxable income for Social Security purposes. Distributions from a Roth 403(b) that are tax free do not. So contributing to a Roth 403(b) may actually help reduce your taxable income later... and thus minimize income taxes on your Social Security benefits. It could reduce it. Unlike a Traditional 403(b), contributions to a Roth 403(b) won t reduce your taxable income. So you ll actually be paying taxes on a higher amount, which could reduce your take-home pay. (See the example below.) Traditional Roth 403(b) 403(b) Gross income $50,000 $50,000 Traditional 403(b) contribution PRE-TAX - $5,000 N/A Taxable Income $45,000 $50,000 25% 1 income taxes - $11,250 - $12,500 After-tax income $33,750 $37,500 Roth 403(b) contribution N/A AFTER-TAX - $5,000 Take-home pay $33,750 $32,500 Contributing to a Roth 403(b) may also affect your ability to take other tax credits and deductions (for example, student loan deductions, medical expense deductions and child care tax credits). Whether or not you qualify for these tax credits and deductions depends on your income level. Since Roth 403(b) contributions won t reduce your adjusted taxable income, that could affect your eligibility for these tax reductions. We still have more answers.
