Traditional vs. Roth

Traditional IRA

A traditional IRA from Northeast Bank gives you allows immediate tax savings since you may deduct contributions from your current annual returns. The interest earnings don't incur taxes until withdrawal. This can provide another advantage, since the tax will typically be subject to a lower tax bracket once you're retired.

  • Must be under age 70½ to open
  • Minimum $1,000 to open
  • No annual fee
  • Interest earnings are tax deferred*
  • Contributions may be deduced from income tax returns*
  • $5,500 contribution limit per year (as of 2013)
  • Additional $1,000 "catchup" contribution allowed for ages 50+'
  • Withdrawals may begin at age 59½
  • Early withdrawals on interest subject to penalty***
  • Mandatory withdrawals begin at age 70½

Roth IRA

You cannot deduct contributions to a Roth, but your interest earnings are completely tax-free upon withdrawal. So while you can't lower your taxes today, you may reap tax benefits later. Another advantage is your principal (not the interest) may be withdrawn without penalty at any time.

Income must be less than $120,000 per year to open

  • $177,0000 for married couples
  • Contributions are NOT tax deductible
  • Earnings are 100% tax-free upon withdrawal
