What is an Individual Retirement Account IRA?

  1. 1. This Slide Show is brought to You by http://retirement.personalloandebt.info
  2. 2. What is an Individual Retirement Accoun Perhaps you are interested in getting smart and putting some money away for your retirement? You are really never too young to start saving for retirement, and this is something that everyone should make sure to do for themselves. By saving for retirement, you are making sure that you are going to be financially safe in your older years.
  3. 3. Start Saving For Retirement If you want to start saving for retirement, one of the best things that you can do is start up an individual retirement account IRA. Whether you decide to go with a traditional individual retirement account or a Roth individual retirement account IRA, which are your two choices here, it will be a wise decision.
  4. 4. What it is Of course before you go ahead with this, you are going to want to learn a bit more about IRAs and what they have to offer you. One of the best things about them is that the funds in these accounts can be moved from one authorized IRA custodian to another, also known as a transfer. Transfers are tax free and penalty free, something that we can all appreciate.
  5. 5. Distributions And Borrowing When it comes to the contributions, distributions and borrowing of these accounts, you should know that there is nothing prohibiting withdrawals from an IRA plan, but the withdrawals are taxable and so if you take out funs early you are going to want to be careful and make sure that it is something you really truly need.
  6. 6. IRAs Do Not Permit Loans IRAs do not permit loans, and you are not allowed to rollover funds from a plan that you have taken a loan against. Another important piece of information on IRAs is that the maximum distribution for each year is calculated by dividing the IRA account balance as of December 31 of the prior year, by the applicable distribution period or the life expectancy of the person.
  7. 7. Account IRA Going Right Away As you can see, starting an individual retirement account IRA will be one of the best things that you will ever do in your life, and so if you do not already have an individual retirement account IRA set up, then this is something that you should definitely get on top of. Just go into your bank and speak to a financial advisor, and they will be able to work with you and get your individual retirement account IRA going right away.
  8. 8. Retirement Savings There are other types of retirement savings plans that you have to choose from as well, but this is definitely one of the most worthwhile.
