Roth IRA*

Set yourself up for a comfortable retirement

Contribute to your retirement savings from your first job bussing tables to your final job before you retire and take money out tax-free on your own terms.

Flexibility + tax-free withdrawals

With IRAs, you can choose to pay taxes either while you’re saving (Roth) or when you are withdrawing your savings (Traditional). Because you pay taxes on your contributions with a Roth IRA, you don’t have to pay taxes when you withdraw your money later. That can be a nice benny when you’re retired. Another advantage of a Roth IRA is that you can withdraw your funds without penalty at any time. That means you could use the money for pre-retirement needs like purchasing a house or covering college expenses. You also have the option to not withdraw funds until you’re ready or even skip withdrawing at all so you can leave the money to your heirs.

You’ll thank yourself later

A Roth IRA’s pay now, save later approach means you’ll pay fewer taxes in retirement. That means more bingo, beach trips or bargain hunting when you have free time on your hands. As with any retirement account, the sooner you start saving money the more your interest will add up.
