Individual Retirement Account FAQ

Q: Are there tax benefits to saving in an IRA?

A: Contributions to your Traditional IRA account may offer some tax savings and deductibles based on your age, the amount deposited, and the timing of the deposited funds.

Q: What’s the difference between a Roth IRA and a Traditional IRA?

A: Traditional IRA accounts are tax-deferred, meaning that taxes are taken from your money after they are withdrawn from the account. In contrast, a Roth IRA uses previously taxed funds to finance your account, making them tax-free upon withdrawal.

There are advantages to Roth Individual Retirement Account Savings and Certificates:

  • Tax-free withdrawals at retirement
  • Competitive interest rates
  • Open a Roth IRA at any branch

Q: When can I start withdrawing money from my IRA?

A: You may withdraw funds from your IRA at any age, but bear in mind that there are fines and fees required if you choose to do so before the age of 59½. Once you reach the age of 72, you will be required to withdraw regular sums of money from your account. For more information, please reach out to your Arbor Financial branch.
