Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

IRAs can help you save for the future while taking advantage of tax-deferred growth and dividend interest. You can choose between a Traditional IRA or a ROTH IRA. Depending on the IRA you select, your contributions may be tax deductible.

Whether you choose a Traditional or Roth IRA, the tax benefits allow your savings to potentially grow, or compound, more quickly than in a taxable account. To get that tax-advantaged growth from your IRA contributions, remember to do 3 things: contribute what you can, invest your contribution, and set up automatic investments.
