Morningside Nannies was far more professional and focused than the other agencies. They listened to my request and responded promptly. I feel very fortunate to have such superb childcare and appreciate the luxury of returning to work with-out worry. Many thanks go to Morningside Nannies for that.Jeremy and Lauren Blachman
Originally, I tried to find a nanny on my own and it took me much, much longer and only half of them spoke English. I had to do my own background checks. Morningside Nannies made it much easier, faster and more efficient.Holly Weinstock, Stay at home mom
Compared to other agencies Morningside presented a higher caliber of candidate.Phyllis Epps, Law Professor

Saving for Your Retirement

When working for a family, there isn’t a human resources department that manages your benefits package or guides you through the business side of nannying. For nannies who wish to save for their retirement, the ball is in your court, waiting for you to take action and put your retirement savings plan into practice.

When considering retirement, in addition to putting money into savings, many nannies wish to start a formal retirement plan. Fortunately, there are a few simple options that you can manage on your own that don’t require your employer to startup or fund.

Roth IRA

With a Roth IRA you can contribute to it on your own or you can ask your employer to also contribute. Contributions to a Roth IRA are made using after tax dollars. The Roth IRA grows tax-free and you won’t need to pay taxes on your withdrawal when you retire.

Traditional IRA

With a Traditional IRA only you can contribute and your contributions are made using tax-deferred dollars. When you withdraw funds upon retirement, however, they are subject to taxes.

As of 2012, for employees under age 50, $5,000 per year can be contributed to a Roth or Traditional IRA. For employees over 50 that amount increases to $6,000 per year.

Talk to your insurance broker about setting up an IRA for your retirement or contact Vanguard to set up an IRA online.
