An Individual Retirement Account is a special tax deferred savings plan authorized by the Federal Government to encourage you to accumulate money for retirement. You may withdraw funds from a Traditional IRA any time after you reach age 59 1/2. Distributions taken prior to age 59 1/2 may be subject to early withdrawal penalties.
A Roth IRA is an individual retirement account to which participants are able to make annual non-deductible contributions. Unlike a Traditional IRA in which earnings are tax-deferred, Roth IRA earnings can be tax free. You may withdraw your Roth contributions at anytime, without tax and penalty free. "Qualified distributions" may be withdrawn tax and penalty free. "Non-qualified" distributions may be taxable and subject to an IRS early distribution penalty.
Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (ESA)
Formerly known as an Education IRA, Coverdell Education Savings Accounts are an ideal way for you to begin saving money to help a child, or grandchild, pay for higher education expenses down the road. Contributions to a Coverdell Education Savings Account are not tax-deductible, but distributions used to pay for the qualified education costs of the named beneficiary are generally tax free. You may contribute to the account until the beneficiary reaches the age of 18.
