Retirement Planning - What Are You Allowed to Contribute?

Updated: Nov 2, 2023

First off, what is an IRA?

An IRA, or Individual Retirement Account, is a type of investment account that is designed to help people save for retirement. There are several different types of IRAs, including traditional IRAs, Roth IRAs, and SEP IRAs.

Traditional IRAs are tax-deferred, meaning you can contribute pre-tax income, and your money can grow tax-free until you withdraw it in retirement. However, when you withdraw the money in retirement, you will be required to pay taxes at your current tax rate.

Roth IRAs are funded with after-tax income, meaning you cannot claim a tax deduction for your contributions. However, the money in a Roth IRA grows tax-free and can be withdrawn tax-free in retirement as long as you meet certain conditions.

SEP IRAs are retirement accounts for self-employed individuals and small business owners. They work similarly to traditional IRAs but have higher contribution limits.

There are limits to how much you can contribute to an IRA each year. For 2023, the contribution limit for traditional and Roth IRAs is $6,500, or $7,500 if you are age 50 or older. The contribution limit for SEP IRAs is generally much higher and is based on a percentage of your income.
