Retirement Accounts

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are a popular way for people to save money for retirement. Two types of IRAs are Traditional and Roth, each of which have their own specific benefits if properly used within your financial plan. We can help you understand how each type of IRA helps you achieve your financial goals.

There are many reasons to start an IRA. Here's some examples of what that may look like for you:

  • Experienced a job change and you want to rollover your 401(k) or other employer sponsored plan
  • You want to take advantage of available tax deductions

Traditional IRA

You may receive tax breaks now, depending on your situation. Contributions will grow tax-deferred but will be taxed when you take money out in retirement. Traditional IRAs can be a smart solution to increase your tax-deferred savings, and save on your current income tax bill.

Roth IRA

While you generally won't receive immediate tax breaks, your money will still grow tax deferred, and your qualified withdrawals are tax-free. Roth IRAs can be a smart solution if you expect to be taxed at a higher rate when you begin making withdrawals.
