Roth IRAs

While contributions to a Roth IRA* are not tax deductible, withdrawals are tax free if certain conditions are met. For 2013, the maximum contribution is $5,500 ($6,500 if you are age 50 or older).

Withdrawals from a Roth IRA are tax and penalty free if the account owner is at least 59½ years old and the account has been held at least five years. Withdrawals from a Roth IRA are also tax and penalty free under these circumstances:

  • The distribution is due to total disability and the account has been held at least five years.
  • The distribution is for a qualified first-time home purchase and the account has been held at least five years.
  • The distribution is to a beneficiary after the owner's death and the account has been held at least five years.

Unlike the Traditional IRA there is no requirement that withdrawals be started at age 70½.

Eligibility to open a Roth IRA is based on income:
