Types of IRA accounts

IRAs can vary based on the type of account you choose. Choosing the best IRA for you depends on your goals.

Piggy bank

Traditional IRA

A traditional IRA is an individual retirement account that allows you to save for retirement with tax-deferred earnings, so you won’t owe income taxes on amounts deposited until you make withdrawals. And, if you’re eligible, contributions can be tax-deductible.1 For 2023, you can invest up to $6,500 a year, or if you’re age 50 or older, up to $7,500 based on eligibility.


Roth IRA

A  Roth IRA is also an individual retirement account, but there’s a big difference. Contributions to a Roth IRA aren’t tax-deductible. So why choose it? The money you contribute can be withdrawn at any time tax- and penalty-free. This means if you find yourself in a financial pinch, you can withdraw what you’ve put in (not what you’ve earned) without penalty. If you qualify, you can withdraw the earnings tax-free also.

Determine if a rollover is right for you

Do you have an IRA or previous employer-sponsored 401(k) that’s passively running in the background? It might be time to consider rolling them over and consolidating them into one IRA account to help you get your future planning on track.

Reasons to consider a rollover

  • Never lose track of your old 401(k)s or other IRAs.
  • Build personal wealth over time with greater control over your retirement funds.
  • Increase offerings to fit your retirement goals.

Maximize your contribution

Opening or contributing to an individual retirement account before tax day could help you reduce your taxable income and build your retirement savings. For 2023, you may be eligible to contribute up to $7,500!

Age 2023 tax year
Under 50 $6,500
50* or older $7,500

*Reaches age 50 before the close of the year for which the contribution is made.

They’ve been so helpful over the years with figuring out ... complicated banking things like inherited IRAs, which nobody knows about because they’re so complicated and they’re kind of new.
