Do you want to make sure that you have enough money for retirement? Then you may want to consider looking into a Roth IRA or a Traditional IRA. This is not financial advice.
The term IRA simply stands for an individual retirement account. The government provides citizens with tax incentives through IRA’s to make sure that they take advantage of investing for retirement. An IRA is not an investment itself, but simply a place by which to place investments such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.
Let’s say you’re packing a lunch. An IRA is like the lunch box that you’re putting food into and each individual package of food could represent the stocks, bonds, and mutual funds you’re buying.
A traditional IRA will usually have you pay taxes on the money you pull out of the fund when you reach retirement. However, up until this point you can usually get tax deductions for the amount of money you put into your IRA. A Roth IRA is similar in many ways except for how it is taxed. The money invested is taxed at the beginning when you put it into the Roth IRA, but can be withdrawn tax free at retirement. To figure out what accounts are right for you, do your own research online and possibly talk to your financial advisor because you could make and save thousands of dollars.
