Individual Retirement Account Applications

An IRA is a retirement investing tool for employed individuals and their non-working spouses that allows annual contributions up to a specified maximum amount.  
Traditional and Roth IRA Application
Contributions are often tax-deductible (often simplified as "money is deposited before tax" or "contributions are made with pre-tax assets"), all transactions and earnings within the IRA have no tax impact, and withdrawals at retirement are taxed as income (except for those portions of the withdrawal corresponding to contributions that were not deducted). Within a Roth IRA account, contributions are made with after-tax assets, all transactions within the Roth IRA have no tax impact, and withdrawals are usually tax-free. Download PDF
