Benefits of a Traditional IRA
Tax advantages while you save.


All or part of your contributions may be tax-deductible, which may reduce your taxable income each year you make a contribution.

Your contributions may accumulate earnings and grow tax-deferred until you begin taking withdrawals in retirement, and by then, you could be in a lower tax bracket.


No income limit.

There are no income limit restrictions on eligibility to contribute. But you must have taxable compensation and there could be a limit on tax deductions if you are also contributing to a 401(k).

You must begin taking required minimum distributions (RMDs) for the year you reach age 70½.
