Adam Bergman, a Partner with the IRA Financial Group, was quoted recently in the article titled, “Retirement won’t be comfortable for many retirees” on Marketplace.org. The article described the pending retirement crisis for many retirees. Adam Bergman, a tax attorney who specializes in the taxation of retirement accounts, was quoted on the importance of saving for retirement for the millennials and generation Xers. “It is crucial that Americans are educated about the importance of saving for retirement, especially young professional millennials and generation Xers and even the baby boomers,” stated Adam Bergman.
According to Mr. Bergman, “I understand it may be hard for someone in their twenties or early thirties to start thinking about retiring, especially when there is so much interesting stuff to check out on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. I also understand that millennials and generation Xers have expenses to worry about, such as rent or mortgage payments, car payments, credit-card debt, student debt, entertainment, and other miscellaneous costs, but I do believe that the majority of millennials and generation Xers can find a way to save a few dollars a day especially once they are shown that it can lead to a million dollars tax free when they retire.”
