IRA Financial Group, the leading provider of self-directed IRA LLC “checkbook control” structures expects to see an increase in demand for the self-directed IRA plan for retirees looking to supplement their social security benefits in light of historical low increase. With Social Security payments for 63 million retirees and disabled people expected to rise 1.5% in January, a historically small annual adjustment, retirees are likely to look at the self-directed IRA plan as a solution for accelerating gains in their retirement portfolios. The increase in social security payments, announced on October 30, 2013 by the Social Security Administration, would be among the smallest since automatic cost-of-living adjustments started in 1975. “We are hearing more and more from retirees across the country who are concerned that their social security benefits and current retirement account yields will not be enough to sustain their lifestyle in 2014, “ stated Susan Glass, a tax professional with the IRA Financial Group. “More and more retirees have been turning to the self directed IRA LLC solution as a means of generating greater diversification and better returns for their retirement assets, “ stated Ms. Glass.
