Traditional vs Roth IRAs

In this informative video, Bayntree Financial Advisor Cristina Perez walks you through the differences between a Traditional IRA and a Roth IRA, and some of their key benefits, including:

Traditional IRA

  • Contributions are tax-deductible in the year they are made
  • Earnings grow tax-deferred until they are withdrawn
  • Withdrawals are taxed as ordinary income in the year they are made

Roth IRA

  • Contributions are made with after-tax dollars
  • Earnings grow tax-free
  • Withdrawals are tax-free after age 59½, as long as the account has been open for at least 5 years

Which option is right for you?

It's important to speak with a financial advisor to discuss your individual situation and determine which type of IRA is right for you.
