A traditional IRA offers several benefits, including:

  • Tax-deferred growth: You will not pay any taxes on the money in your traditional IRA until you take money out to use it in retirement

  • Tax deductions: You may be eligible to deduct your contribution from your income, which means you’ll pay less in taxes this year

  • No age restrictions for contributions: As long as you have qualifying earned income, there’s no age limit on making contributions to your Traditional IRA

  • Protection from creditors: In some cases, IRAs are protected from creditors in the event of bankruptcy
