Traditional and Roth IRAs


  • Save for retirement at any age
  • Choose between tax-deductible contributions or tax-exempt withdrawals


  • Contribute up to $6,000 per tax year, or possibly $7,000 if you are over age 50
  • If your spouse is employed, he/she can open an IRA and contribute up to $6,000 (or possibly $7,000 if over age 50) of earned income for the year
  • Or, you can open a spousal IRA on his/her behalf with the total contribution of $12,000 for the year, as long as a contribution to either of the accounts is no more than $6,000. For 50 and older the contribution for both could total $14,000 for the year.

Traditional IRA vs. Roth IRA


Traditional IRA

  • Savings are taxed as income in retirement (tax-deferred earnings)
  • Contributions may be tax deductible
  • No income limits for contributions


Roth IRA

  • Contributions are not tax deductible, and there are limits on your contributions
  • Receive tax-free income in retirement, as the contributions were taxed when put into savings
  • Withdrawals are considered qualified as long as the account has been open for at least five year, and you are either over age 59 1/2, disabled, or buying your first home (other restrictions may apply)

Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Can I roll over my HSA into an IRA?
A: No. HSA funds can only be rolled over into another HSA account, not an IRA.

Q: What happens to my Traditional IRA if I die?
A: Your beneficiaries will be notified, and funds will be distributed accordingly.
