Benefits of a Roth IRA
The time is now

The sooner you start contributing to a Roth IRA* the better. The longer your contributions have to compound tax-deferred, the more your contributions may be worth in retirement.

Flexibility for life's unexpected events

Your contributions are available for withdrawal anytime but you may incur taxes and/or penalties if, for example, you are under age 59½ and have held the account for less than 5 years.

Pay no taxes in retirement

Once you reach age 59½ with an account that has been opened for at least five years, you may qualify for tax-free withdrawals of both Roth IRA contributions and any accumulated earnings.

More spendable income in retirement

Many people will realize more spendable income in retirement. Plus, there are no minimum distribution requirements.

*In order to contribute to a Roth IRA, single filers must have a modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) under $133k for tax year 2017 and $135k for tax year 2018. Married couples filing jointly must have a MAGI under $196k for tax year 2017 and $199k for tax year 2018.
