Know your IRAs

An individual retirement account (IRA) is an investment account that can help you save money for retirement with tax-free growth or on a tax-deferred basis.

Traditional IRAs

The contributions you make to this type of IRA are usually tax-deductible. If you contribute pre-tax, you’ll need to pay taxes on your contributions and earnings later, when you someday withdraw from this account.

Roth IRAs

Contributions you make to this type of IRA are not tax-deductible. But when it’s time to withdraw, you’ll be able to put every qualified dollar to good use—tax-free.


SEP (Simplified Employee Pension) IRAs are available to those who are self-employed, own a business, employ others, or earn freelance income.

You may need to pay taxes on funds you withdraw from this account.
