Traditional IRA

A Traditional IRA allows your earnings to grow tax deferred, so you won’t owe income taxes until you make withdrawals. And if you’re eligible, your contributions are tax deductible. Deductible contributions and earnings are taxed at your regular income tax rate when money is withdrawn.

Features and Benefits

Traditional IRA

  • Allows your earnings to grow tax deferred, so you won’t owe income taxes until you make withdrawals.  
  • If you’re eligible*, your contributions are tax deductible.
  • IRS penalty-free withdrawals are allowed prior to age 59 ½ (up to a lifetime limit of $10,000) when the funds are used for qualifying expenses.**

* Consult a tax advisor for your individual situation.

**Examples include: first time home purchase, higher education expenses, medical expenses, disability, IRS levy, divorce, or death.

Eligibility

To qualify to make tax-deductible contributions to a traditional IRA, you must be less than 70½ years old and have received compensation (in general, income earned from working). From there, you’re automatically eligible if neither you, nor your spouse if you’re married, are covered by an employer-sponsored retirement plan – no matter how high your income.

Eligibility

Assuming you meet the Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) limits, as long as you're still working and have earned income, you can make contributions to a Roth IRA, even after turning age 70½. And Roth IRAs don't require you to take required minimum distributions when you turn age 70½. In addition, your participation in an employer-sponsored retirement plan does not affect your Roth IRA eligibility.
