IRAs - Reduce your taxable income as you save for retirement

IRAs: reduce your taxable income as you save for retirement.

Whether retirement is close at hand or a distant dream, a little bit of planning can go a long way. An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is a popular retirement plan that provides tax-advantaged savings for retirement. It can be used as an effective way to supplement other long-term savings vehicles.

While your money is in an IRA, you don't pay any current income tax on the interest, dividends or capital gains earned. This means that your savings can compound more quickly than in a taxable account. And with a choice of IRAs, there’s one to address the needs of just about anyone. You can invest in a variety of options such as mutual funds1, or investment products1.

IRA Comparison

There are two types of IRAs available for your annual contributions: Traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs.

Traditional IRA
A tax-deferred personal savings plan that allows income earners to make annual contributions, which may be tax-deductible.

Roth IRA
A personal savings plan that allows qualified investors to make non-deductible annual contributions with after tax dollars and to withdraw principal and earnings tax-free under certain conditions.
