Individual Retirement Accounts
Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) were developed to give people a tax-advantaged way to save for retirement.
Smart solutions for financing your retirement.
The earnings in a Traditional IRA grow tax-deferred until they are withdrawn. Depending on your income, contributions to Traditional IRAs are tax-deductible1 up to the full amount of the contribution.
If you choose to invest your IRA in a certificate of deposit, you earn a guaranteed interest rate for a fixed term. When your IRA CD matures, you can automatically renew it, or transfer your balance into another retirement account and continue to let it grow.
A Roth IRA is similar to a Traditional IRA in many ways, the key difference is that as your money grows, it grows tax free, and when you withdraw at retirement, you will pay no taxes. Also, the interest earned accumulates tax free.
According to the IRS, you are eligible to contribute to a Spousal IRA if the all the following conditions are met:
- You must be married at the end of the tax year
- Your spouse must be under the age of 70 ½ at the end of the tax year
- You must file a joint return for the tax year
- You must have taxable compensation for the year
- Your spouse must either have no compensation or choose to be treated as having no compensation for the tax year
