Frequently asked questions.
How much can I contribute to my Roth or Traditional IRA?
You can contribute up to the lesser of 100% of your earned income or $6,500 for the 2023 tax year. Once you reach age 50, contribution limits on IRAs increase by another $1,000. This allows for a "catch-up"contribution for those nearing retirement.
Are there age limits to contribute to an IRA?
The Secure Act of 2019 removed the age limit at which an individual can contribute to a traditional IRA. This Act allows anyone that is working and/or has earned income to contribute to a Traditional IRA regardless of age.
Can I withdraw money from an IRA?
Under certain conditions, you can withdraw money from your IRA without penalty. The rules vary depending on the type of IRA you have. Starting at age 59½, you can begin taking money out of your IRA without an IRS penalty, but you will still be responsible for taxes that might be due. Starting at age 73, you generally must take a required minimum distribution (RMD) from many types of IRAs.
Can I transfer my IRA from another institution OR roll over my old 401k from a previous employer to my Roth or Traditional IRA?
Yes, contact your local branch officer and they will guide you through the entire process.
