Plan for your retirement with a PB&T IRA. Designed as long-term savings accounts, IRAs are savings accounts intended to benefit you at retirement age. IRAs can be funded with your salary, wages, and tips. Income from properties and pensions are examples of funds that are not eligible as IRA contributions. There are two types of IRAs. A Traditional IRA defers taxing your account contributions until you withdraw money in retirement, while a Roth IRA taxes your contributing funds when they are deposited and allows for tax-free withdrawals in retirement. Both Traditional and Roth IRAs offer tax advantages to help you save for your retirement.
