Retirement Savings Accounts

IRA Advantages

With a traditional IRA, you contribute pretax income toward investments that can grow tax-deferred. This means you pay taxes on money only when you make withdrawals. You may also deduct your contributions from your tax return, depending on eligibility. This account is best for those who: 

  • Are looking for tax deductions now

  • Aren't eligible for a Roth IRA because income is high

  • Are expecting to be in a lower tax bracket when they retire

  • Beginning tax year 2020, there is no age limitation for a Contribution to a Traditional IRA

  • Beginning tax year 2020, the Traditional IRA participants have to begin to remove their required minimum distribution in the tax year when they attain age 72.

Roth IRA Advantages

With a Roth IRA, you make contributions with after-tax money that can grow tax-free. By paying taxes on your money right away, you don't have to worry about taxes on your Roth IRA later. This account is best for those: 

  • Required minimum distribution doesn't pertain to a Roth IRA.

  • Want tax-free withdrawals.
