In a perfect world, you pay into Social Security your entire working life and your money is waiting when you reach retirement, right? Not so fast. Didn’t you get the memo? This is far from a perfect world and Social Security shortfalls are a concern for all Americans.

The Individual Retirement Account came about precisely because pensions and federal retirement funds make so many of us nervous.

The creation of the IRA may not be the greatest thing since sliced bread, but quite honestly—it’s pretty close. Even sliced bread gets taxed, IRAs are either tax-free or tax-deferred. They are one of the most important things you can do for your future. But all accounts are not created equal. Some IRAs are riskier than others. Some are less diversified, and some don’t contain the single asset that could help you ride out the storms of life.

What’s in your IRA? It’s actually what’s NOT in your IRA that’s the more pertinent question.

The IRA was born in 1974 but it was in 1997 that it became possible to add IRS-eligible gold, silver, platinum and palladium bullion coins to your IRA savings mix, bringing a new level of safety, security and stability. It’s easy to do and at a great way to take control of your retirement in a world besieged by global debt, political instability and the volatility of Wall Street.
