Tax breaks today + money for tomorrow
One of the big advantages of a Traditional IRA is that your money grows tax-deferred. You won’t get taxed on your retirement savings until you start withdrawing the money, then you’ll pay taxes on the income just like you would on any other type of income. Not paying taxes up front means more money in your account earning interest. You’ll also be taking advantage of compounding, which basically means that even your interest will earn interest because it’s automatically reinvested for you. So what does that look like in real life? Saving the money you would have spent on one fancy coffee today can mean a whole week of fancy coffee in the future.
Interest that really adds up
One of the great things about an IRA is that it gives you an annual savings goal (your max contribution amount) and lets you watch real growth happen over time. Besides, who wants to work when they’re in their seventies? Even if you already have a 401(k) through your employer, you can still open a Traditional IRA as well.
