It’s never too late to start saving for retirement. The two primary types of individual retirement accounts available to individuals are Traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs.

With Roth IRAs, you get taxed in the year you put the money in, on the funds that you contribute, but then it grows tax free and the entire account balance is yours when you retire without having to pay taxes in retirement.

However, with a Traditional IRA, although you get a tax deduction in the year you make the contribution, you then have to pay taxes on the entire balance while you’re in retirement.

To determine which IRA is best for you, it’s best to talk to your tax advisor and your financial advisor.
