Benefits of a Roth IRA
The greatest benefit to a Roth IRA is the future tax break: tax-free income in retirement. Beyond the tax efficiency, Roth IRAs offer:
- Flexibility: You can normally withdraw your contributions at any time without taxes or penalty. Plus, you can use up to $10,000 of your account balance to purchase a first home. In addition, you can forego the 10% early withdrawal penalty when you withdraw earnings to pay for higher education.
- No mandatory withdrawals: Roth account do not have required minimum distributions like traditional IRAs. This is particularly useful for estate planning purposes because it allows the account balance to continue to grow.
- Saving during retirement: You can make contributions to a Roth if you continue to work in retirement as long as you stay within the income limits.
