Roth IRA vs Traditional IRA

Roth IRA VS Traditional IRA Investing

Roth IRAs are one of the most popular retirement accounts in America, especially because they are exempt from taxes. Choosing between a traditional retirement account and a Roth IRA can be difficult, but the advantages to a Roth account outweigh the disadvantages. Roth accounts can be in the form of both accounts and annuities, though the former is most common.

Some of the main advantages to Roth IRAs is the flexibility to make contributions to the IRA and have the ability to remove those contributions without penalty. Assets in a Roth IRA also distribute assets among family should the beneficiary die.

A few disadvantages of Roth IRAs are contributions are not tax deductible and the funds within a Roth IRA cannot be used as collateral.
