An important part of your retirement savings plan.
With every deposit you make to an Individual Retirement Account, you take another step toward a comfortable retirement. Even if you anticipate having some of your income replaced by Social Security or a pension, an IRA can build dependable wealth for you to rely on after you are done working.
IRAs provide a tax-advantaged way to save that is based on your needs. You don’t have to have a large amount of money to put aside to get started. Plus, our team can help you identify ways to budget better so you can make regular contributions.
Traditional IRA: You may be able to lower your tax bill today when you invest in a Traditional IRA. Contributions made to this type of account reduce your income for the year. You then pay taxes when you withdraw funds in your retirement. This can be a great option if you are currently paying a high marginal tax rate and expect your rate to go down in retirement.
Roth IRA: Unlike a Traditional IRA, you are not able to deduct contributions made to your IRA from your income. Instead, your investment earnings will grow tax-free. When you make withdrawals in retirement, you will not be responsible for paying additional taxes.
Education IRA: A Coverdell Education Savings Account is an IRA that lets you make contributions for a child’s educational future. Contributions are non-deductible, but funds can be withdrawn tax-free when they are used for educational purposes. Savings can be used for a variety of expenses like tuition, books and uniforms for elementary school through higher levels of learning.
