Anyone under the age of 70½ who receives income from compensation or is filing jointly with a spouse who earns compensation is eligible for a Traditional IRA.

Tax Benefits

  • Certain contributions are tax-free
  • All earnings are tax-deferred
  • Penalty-free distributions for first-time home purchases or higher education expenses

Those eligible for a Roth IRA must have income from compensation or be filing jointly with a spouse who earns compensation. Must also have the following modified gross income:

  • Up to $95,000 (single filers)
  • Up to $150,000 (joint filers)

Tax Benefits

Eligibility for an Education IRA is the same as a Roth IRA. However, contributions do not have to come from compensation. Contributions are also not allowed after the beneficiary reaches the age of 18.
