Mega Backdoor Roth

Add $50K+ to Your 401k

If you meet the eligibility requirements, you could stash an extra $41,500 for retirement in a  Roth IRA.

The Mega Backdoor Roth takes investing in a traditional 401(k) to the next level for high-income earners.

However, it’s complicated, and mistakes can  be costly.

Nevertheless, it works great for some. So, it’s worth learning about it. In this article, we’ll talk about the basic rules  of a Mega  Backdoor Roth.

What Is an Individual Retirement Account (IRA)?

An individual retirement account (IRA) is a savings and investment account with tax advantages.

They incur a 10% early withdrawal penalty, but it’s waivable in certain situations.

Maximum contributions are limited to individuals who earn less than $129,000 (single) and $204,000 (married).
