What is an IRA?

IRA stands for Individual Retirement Account. It's a personal retirement plan where your earned income is contributed into an IRA account regardless of whether you participate in an employer's retirement plan or 401K. It's a great way to make your money earn more for you.

Which IRA is right for you?

There are two types of IRAs, and the main difference is when you pay taxes on your deposits and withdrawals.


Traditional IRA

A traditional IRA is tax deferred. This means that you can contribute money before it's taxed, and you don't owe taxes on those contributions or your earnings until you withdraw the money.

Traditional IRA


Roth IRA

A Roth IRA is not tax deferred, which means you owe taxes when you contribute the money to the account.
