Traditional vs. Roth

Find the right IRA to fit your retirement plan. Traditional and Roth IRAs both offer distinct tax advantages, but are taxed in different ways. Consult a tax advisor to see which is right for you.

Traditional IRAs are tax-deferred, meaning you don't pay income tax on what you contribute upfront. Roth IRAs are tax-exempt. So you still pay income tax on your full income, regardless of contribution levels. But funds can be withdrawn tax-free at the appropriate age*.
