Your IRA Options

Many people are familiar with Roth or traditional IRAs, but there are six individual retirement saving options available that savers shouldn’t overlook. Spousal, SIMPLE, nondeductible and  other IRAs offer the same or sometimes better saving benefits. Your choice of IRA can vary based on your income, employment status or workplace offerings.
Traditional IRAs may lower taxable income. This option allows for flexible contributions and investment allocations to fit all investors.
Roth IRAs offer tax-deferred growth and therefore, retirement withdrawals are tax-free. Roth IRAs allow for flexible contributions and investment options for all types of investors.
Spousal IRAs provide an option for spouses with unearned income to save for retirement. These IRAs also lower taxable income.
A SIMPLE IRA is a low cost plan for small business employers. This type of IRA allows for higher contributions than traditional or Roth IRAs.
Nondeductable IRAs allow for contributions if the owner is over the IRA earnings limit. Contributions in this type of IRA grow tax-deferred.
Finally, SEP IRAs allow for the highest contribution limit out of all IRAs. They help to lower taxable income and are a low cost plan for business owners.
Whether you are approaching retirement and are looking to consolidate your accounts or if you need to make a contribution for a tax deduction, our advisors can help get your IRA and retirement planning started.
