Got myself a shinny new Roth IRA

January 18th, 2007 at 03:02 pm

So I was opening myself a Roth IRA on Vanguard yesterday when I could not find any fund that had a minimum investment less than $3,000. So I gave up on it...

Today, Jim at Blueprint for Financial Prosperity posted this blog today: Go Open A Roth IRA Right Now!!!, which gave me a little extra motivation to check it out again. So I found a fund that requires $1,000 minimum investment, which I can do.

So guess what? I did it... I am now the proud owner of a Roth IRA account.

------- Edit ------
This morning, even the Consumerist was suggesting the post by Jim:
Open A Roth IRA Now

Now do you think you should open that Roth IRA??

    Way to go! We need to start looking into something like that too. Since we've been watching our finances so well, we actually have a surplus to invest in our future!

    Vanguard does actually offer one fund that only requires a minimum of $1000 invested for a Roth IRA. Its the STAR fund. https://flagship.vanguard.com/VGApp/hnw/FundsFeesMinimums?F...

    Thanks everyone... It was actually fairly easy and quick to set up. And contributions I make and still tax deductible for 2006. I don't remember when the deadline is.

    Dicky - that is exactly the fund I picked.
