Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between a traditional IRA and a Roth IRA?

A Roth IRA is a retirement savings account that provides federally tax-free growth and withdrawals once the account has been open for 5 years and you are 59½ years of age. Contributions can be withdrawn at any time, tax and penalty-free.


A traditional IRA is a retirement savings account that provides federally tax-deferred growth. Withdrawals after the age of 59½ are taxed at your tax rate at that time. Contributions may be tax-deductible. Withdrawals before the age of 59½ are subject to taxes and a 10% federal penalty.


Anyone with earned income under the age of 70½ can contribute to a traditional IRA. Roth IRAs are restricted to those who do not exceed certain modified adjusted gross income limits.


Traditional IRA contributions may be tax-deductible. Roth IRA contributions cannot be deducted.

What is a rollover IRA and why should I consider opening one?

A rollover IRA is a retirement savings account specifically designed to receive transfers from a previous employer-sponsored retirement plan, such as a 401(k) or 403(b). Benefits include:

• Retention of tax-deferred status of your retirement savings
• Consolidation of your retirement accounts for simplified management and greater control
• A wider variety of investment choices, letting you find investments that more closely fit your financial goals and style
• Opportunity for your retirement savings to continue growing

(Subject to certain rules. Consult your tax advisor.)

How much can I contribute to an IRA account annually?

$5,500 if you are under age 50, $6,500 if you are 50 or older.
