Individual Retirement Account

IRA Advantages

An IRA is an Individual Retirement Account, and provides either a tax deferred or tax-free way of saving for retirement. There are many different types of accounts within the world of IRAs, depending on the financial goals and situations of each individual, though traditional and Roth IRAs are the most common choices. You may be able to claim a deduction on your individual federal income tax return for the amount you contributed to your IRA.
