Every individual under 70½ who has earned income may contribute part of that compensation to a Traditional IRA. Traditional IRAs offer the advantage of tax-deductibility and you may realize your tax savings up front by deducting the amount of your contribution each year from your federal income taxes, depending upon your income and whether you participate in an employer-sponsored retirement plan, such as a 401(k) plan.
1 You can make withdrawals any time after a short waiting period after contribution. Withdrawals are limited to six per month.
