A Traditional IRA can help support your retirement goals.


Grow earnings tax-deferred.

Traditional IRA earnings aren’t taxed until they’re withdrawn. Withdrawing during retirement in a lower tax bracket could mean significant tax savings.

Benefit from commitment.

Contributions and earnings are eligible for distribution without penalty at age 59 ½.* It's a great way to commit to your retirement goals. See additional withdrawal exceptions.

Maximize tax deductions.

For 2018, you can contribute up to $5,500 ($6,500 if you are age 50 or older). For 2019, you can contribute up to $6,000 ($7,000 if you are age 50 or older). Contributions may be tax-deductible. Learn about the IRA contribution deduction limits.

*Mandatory distributions start at 70 ½ and may be subject to an additional 50% excise tax if you fail to meet required minimums.

Being smart with taxes today can pay off tomorrow.


Whatever your happy place looks like for retirement, a Traditional IRA can help you get there.

Don't miss the 2018 tax season to take steps toward retirement.

  • Contribute $5,500 to a Traditional IRA and you may save up to $1,320 on taxes.1

    If you’re under the age of 50, earn a $100,000 household income (HHI) and make the maximum contribution, you may be able to significantly reduce your federal tax bill. That money you saved on taxes? Consider investing that into a Traditional IRA next year.

  • Not expecting a tax refund? Reduce your taxable income.

    Whether you take the standard deduction or itemize, there may be opportunities to save. You may be able to deduct your Traditional IRA contributions and potentially reduce what you owe the IRS. Check your deduction eligibility.

  • The average federal tax refund was $2,895 last year.2

    That’s more than halfway to the annual Traditional IRA contribution limit for investors under the age of 50. Don’t think you have enough money to invest? This could help you get ahead of retirement savings.
