The road to retirement can be long and winding, the more prepared you are, the better off you’ll be. It’s never too early to take control of your financial future and start saving for retirement. Whether you’re just starting your career or planning with your spouse, your long-term financial wellbeing depends on finding the best savings plan to help you meet your retirement goals. A Roth IRA enables you to invest your after-tax dollars and let the earnings grow tax deferred until retirement. Unlike a Traditional IRA, contributions to a Roth IRA are never tax deductible. On the plus side, the money you invest in a Roth IRA can be withdrawn tax-free at any time. If you qualify, you may also be able to withdraw the earnings tax-free. Speak to your tax advisor to see which IRA might be better for your individual tax situation.
