Because I contribute to my employer-sponsored retirement plan, can I also con-tribute to an IRA?

November 10, 2017

Your contributions to your employer-sponsored retirement savings plan may still enable you to open or contribute to either a Roth or traditional individual retirement account (IRA).


However, your (or your spouse’s) participation in an employer-sponsored plan may affect your ability to deduct traditional IRA contributions and your eligibility for a Roth IRA.


Eligibility and deductions are phased-out based on your income and your filing status. (Roth IRA contributions are never tax deductible).


More tax-advantaged account contributions will enable you to accumulate more wealth!


Check with you tax advisor to verify your eligibility.
