Traditional IRAs vs Roth IRAs

Traditional IRA
A Traditional IRA offers potential tax-deductible contributions and the opportunity for your earnings to grow tax-deferred until they are withdrawn in retirement. This means you won’t pay federal income taxes on your deductible


Roth IRA
A Roth IRA provides the opportunity for your earnings to grow tax-free. Generally, Roth IRAs offer greater tax savings and withdrawal flexibility than Traditional IRAs.
