I was happy to be interviewed by Diamond Certified’s reporter Chris Bjorklund regarding funding your Individual Retirement Account (IRA).
As I explained to Chris, you don’t have to wait until you’re about to file your taxes in April, 2012 to fund your 2011 contribution to your IRA. If you have the money available, you can put this year’s contribution into your IRA account now.
You might decide that you want to fund your 2011 IRA contribution as soon as possible, if you believe the markets will be going up. Or, you might want to start collecting interest if you’ve selected an investment that grows that way.
Chris’ Diamond Certified Report with my comments start running on the radio today.
