Traditional IRA

A Traditional individual retirement account (IRA) is one of the most common types of retirement savings accounts.

Contributions made into the account each year may provide a tax-deduction equivalent to the same amount contributed (subject to government guidelines and income limitations). In retirement, most individuals find themselves in a lower tax bracket than when they were employed. This means they pay a lower tax rate on funds withdrawn from their account than they would have during the years the funds were invested in the account.

Any earnings within a traditional IRA account grow tax-deferred. Only when the funds are withdrawn from the account as a distribution will there be a potential tax liability.

Key Features

  • Tax-deferred
    One of the most notable benefits of a traditional IRA is the fact that funds are tax-deferred while in the account. That means that any gains are also tax-deferred until withdrawn from the account.
  • Tax deductible
    Contributions to a traditional IRA may be tax deductible, provided you meet certain requirements.
  • Required distributions
    Another important factor when considering traditional IRAs is the required minimum distribution (RMD) requirement when you turn age 73.
  • Distribution penalties
    Keep in mind that distributions from your IRA can be subject to a 10% early distribution penalty tax if taken before age 59 1/2, unless a penalty tax exception applies.
  • Catch-up contributions 
    For account owners age 50 and older, a “catch-up” provisions allows an additional contribution of $1,000.
  • First-time home buyer
    Up to $10,000 can be withdrawn from a traditional IRA penalty-free, if the money is used to acquire a principal residence for a first-time home buyer. The owner of the home must be the traditional IRA’s owner, their spouse, or their lineal ancestors and descendants.  The individual cannot have owned a home in the previous 24 months.
