Types of IRA Accounts

Traditional IRA

With this IRA, contributions you make to the account are often tax deductible and taxed upon withdrawal. This allows you to defer taxation until your retirement, when you may be in a lower tax bracket.

Roth IRA

Contributions you make now are not tax deductible, but can be withdrawn tax and penalty-free at any time. Earnings can be withdrawn tax and penalty-free for certain reasons after five tax years. If you do not need the immediate tax break or expect to be in a higher tax bracket when you retire, this may be the account for you.

Coverdell Education Savings Account

This savings account allows individuals to save money for a child’s higher education on a tax-favored basis. Withdrawals can be used for qualified education expenses from elementary school to college and are tax and penalty-free. Earnings are subject to tax and penalty for other withdrawals.
