Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)
There can be tax advantages to contributing to a Traditional IRA – for many, contributions are tax deductible. If you’re under 70 ½ years of age with an earned income, a Traditional IRA may be the choice for you.
While the contributions to your Roth IRA are not tax deductible as with a traditional IRA, your Roth funds can be withdrawn after the age of 59 ½ tax-free and without penalty if your account has been open for at least five years.
Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) IRA
A retirement plan for businesses or self-employed individuals, an SEP is a retirement option that gives employers a method for providing for retirement without the complexities of a qualified plan.
