Types of IRA accounts

IRAs can vary based on the type of account you choose. Choosing the best IRA for you depends on your goals

Traditional IRA

A traditional IRA is an individual retirement account that allows you to save for retirement with tax-deferred earnings, so you won’t owe income taxes until you make withdrawals. And, If you’re eligible, contributions can be tax-deductible.* You can invest up to $6,000 a year, or if you’re age 50 or older, up to $7,000 based on eligibility.

Roth IRA

A Roth IRA is also an individual retirement account, but there’s a big difference. Contributions to a Roth IRA aren’t tax-deductible. So why choose it? The money you contribute can be withdrawn at any time tax- and penalty-free. If you qualify, you can withdraw the earnings tax-free also. This means if you find yourself in a financial pinch, you can withdraw what you’ve put in (not what you’ve earned) without penalty.

Maximize your contribution

Opening or contributing to an individual retirement account before tax day could help you reduce your taxable income and build your retirement savings. You may be eligible to contribute up to $7,000!

Age 2020 tax year
Age less than 50 $6,000
Age 50* or older $7,000

*Attains age 50 before the close of the year for which the contribution is made.

They’ve been so helpful over the years with figuring out...complicated banking things like inherited IRAs which nobody knows about because they’re so complicated and they’re kind of new.
