Loading the video player ...

February 7, 2014. Both traditional and Roth accounts can help you prepare financially for retirement. But which type you choose can have a big impact on how you reach your goals.

In this brief Edward Jones Perspective video, we'll compare the two types of Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and highlight:

  • Differing tax treatments of account contributions, earnings and withdrawals
  • Who may benefit from each type of IRA
  • Concept of tax diversification (investing in both types of retirement accounts for flexibility in retirement)

For more information or to open an account, set up a face-to-face meeting with the Edward Jones financial advisor in your community.
