Traditional IRA

Earnings accumulate tax-deferred until withdrawn with a Traditional IRA when you make contributions (before age 701/2). What does that mean? It means your money grows and you don’t need to pay taxes on it until you take it out of the IRA. Neat, right?

Roth IRA

With a Roth IRA, you can contribute at any age, and your money grows tax-deferred. A Roth IRA features tax credits, which means you may be eligible for a dollar-for-dollar reduction in your taxes, and you can also enjoy tax-free withdrawals (when you withdraw contributions first).(1)

Speak with a personal banker at your local branch who will give you one-on-one attention and help you decide which option works best for you.

(1) Be sure to speak to your tax advisor about your individual tax situation.
