This time of year, it's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle. But don't forget about your long-term retirement savings strategy. Fully funding your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) for 2018 is a critical part of keeping that strategy on track.

For 2018, you can contribute up to $5,500 into a traditional or Roth IRA. If you're age 50 or over, you can take advantage of an additional catch-up contribution of $1,000.

And Edward Jones makes it even easier to contribute: Our free service lets you automatically fund your IRA throughout the year. With electronic funds transfer, you can move money automatically from your bank account to your IRA monthly, quarterly or semiannually. So funding your future can be one less thing to worry about today.

Your financial advisor can help you create a savings strategy for your IRA that’s just right for you. And if you haven’t reviewed your portfolio in a while, now would be a good time to look at the big picture to help ensure you’re still on track to achieve your goals.
