Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)

This account that allows you to defer taxes on your earnings until they are withdrawn and certain contributions may be tax deductible in the year they are made. New income limits for deductibility have made the Traditional IRA an attractive savings vehicle.
The Roth IRA is a nondeductible account that features tax-free withdrawals for qualified distributions. Earnings are tax free provided they’re withdrawn as part of a qualified distribution, after a five-year holding period. The Roth IRA provides greater distribution flexibility that allows you to work toward different goals, such as a first home purchase or your child’s college education.
Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA)
Formerly known as the Education IRA, the ESA is a nondeductible account that features tax-free withdrawals for a very specific purpose like a child’s higher education expenses. Distributions for qualified higher education reasons are penalty-free and tax-free. Contributions are limited to $2,000 per child per taxable year.
