Individual IRA

Many workers (60%) saving for retirement report total savings and investments of less than $25,000 (not including the value of their primary residence or any defined benefit plans). The majority of these workers who have put money aside for retirement have put aside very little:  30% say they have less than $1,000 in savings, according to the nonprofit Employee Benefit Research Institute (March 2012 Retirement Confidence Survey).

These are startling statistics which highlight the drastic need for retirement planning in America.  

Whether or not you are covered by an employer-sponsored retirement plan, an Individual Retirement Arrangement (IRA) may be another avenue for you to save for retirement.  IRA accounts come in two flavors.  A Traditional IRA may offer a current year tax deduction and tax-deferred growth.  With a Roth IRA, your contributions are after-tax (not eligible for a deduction), but your money will grow tax-deferred and be tax-free upon withdrawal at retirement.  Plus, there are exciting opportunities with Roth IRAs now that may benefit you.  We can help you evaluate which option would work best for your individual situation.  

Federal tax law establishes the total amount you can contribute to traditional and Roth IRA accounts each tax year.
