IRA account FAQs

Can I convert a Traditional IRA to a Roth IRA?

Yes, but when you convert a traditional IRA to a Roth, you’ll owe taxes on any money in the traditional IRA that would have been taxed when you withdrew it. That includes the tax-deductible contributions you made to the account as well as the tax-deferred earnings that have built up over the years. That money will be taxed as income for the year you make the conversion. Please consult a tax professional to see if this option is right for you.

What’s the difference between a Traditional IRA and a Roth IRA?

A Traditional IRA is a potentially tax-deferred plan. Depending on your income, a Traditional IRA may allow you to make tax-free contributions now and pay taxes on your withdrawals when you retire. A Roth IRA is a plan that allows you to pay taxes now and make tax-free withdrawals later. While almost anyone with earned income can contribute to a traditional IRA, there are income limits for contributing to a Roth IRA.

When can I withdraw money from my IRA account?

You can take money out of an IRA whenever you want, but if you’re under the age of 59½, there may be some penalties. If you withdraw money from a Traditional IRA, you may be faced with a 10% penalty on the amount you withdraw. If you withdraw from a Roth IRA, you have some flexibility. You may withdraw your contributions to a Roth penalty-free at any time for any reason, as long as you don’t withdraw any earnings on your investments (as opposed to the amount you put in) or dollars converted from a traditional IRA before age 59½. It’s always a good idea to consult a tax or financial advisor for specific information on how certain laws apply to your situation and about your individual financial situation.
