Individual Retirement Accounts

Whether you plan to retire at age 35 or age 65, it's never too early to open an IRA and begin saving. An individual retirement account (IRA) may offer tax benefits and is a great way to save for the future. We offer a number of options when choosing an IRA and have provided information regarding them in the table below.

If you have questions about IRA contributions, income limits, or IRA types, please contact us and we'll be happy to get you the information you need to make the best decision.

Details Traditional IRA ROTH IRA

You make contributions with money you may be able to deduct on your tax return, and any earnings can potentially grow tax-deferred until you withdraw them in retirement. Many retirees also find themselves in a lower tax bracket than they were in pre-retirement, so the tax-deferral means the money may be taxed at a lower rate.

You make contributions with money you’ve already paid taxes on (after-tax), and your money may potentially grow tax-free, with tax-free withdrawals in retirement, provided that certain conditions are met.
Income Restrictions No income restrictions on eligibility to contribute, but possibly on deductibility. You may not be eligible to contribute if your income is $144k or more in tax year 2022 and $153k or more in tax year 2023 for single filers or $214k or more in tax year 2022 and $228k or more in tax year 2023 for joint filers. 
Contributions  Contributions may be tax-deductible.

Contributions may be withdrawn at any time without taxes or penalties.

Earnings Earnings grow tax-deferred. You generally pay taxes when you make withdrawals, often in retirement.Earnings may be withdrawn tax-free and penalty-free once you reach age 59½ and the account has been open for at least five years. 
TaxesPay taxes later.Pay taxes now. 
Age RestrictionsNone, as long as the account holder has income.No age restrictions for contributions.  
Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs)
