Individual retirement accounts (IRAs) are one of the most viable answers to the question of how to assure a secure retirement. Diamond offers Traditional and Roth IRAs.
Traditional IRA – Traditional IRAs allow tax-deductible contributions and the amount in your IRA can grow tax-free. Your contributions and gains are taxed when distributed. Anyone under age 70 who has earned income, or is filing jointly with a spouse who has earned income, may contribute.
Roth IRA – Roth IRA contributions are not tax-deductible, however, all withdrawals, including earnings, are generally tax-free if the account has been open for at least five years and the account holder is 59½ or older. You can also use your contribution (but not your earnings) anytime, tax-free and with no penalty.
Contribution Limits – For either a Traditional IRA or Roth IRA, your contribution limit is $6,000 per year or $7,000 if you’re age 50 or older by the end of the year.
