Learn more about a Roth IRA

What is a Roth IRA?

A Roth IRA offers individuals the ability to contribute funds that are not tax deductible. In addition, qualified distributions are generally tax free. For a distribution to be considered qualified the Roth IRA must have been opened at least five years and the account holder must be either 59 1/2 of age, disabled, deceased or purchasing a first home. The contribution limit for both 2013 and 2014 is $5,500.
