IRAs (Individual Retirement Accounts)

The Traditional IRA


The Traditional IRA

You can establish a traditional IRA whether or not you are covered by any other retirement plan. Wages or net earnings from self-employment can serve as the basis for a traditional IRA contribution. You and your spouse can make regular IRA contributions of up to $5,500 in 2014 (same in 2013), providing your tax filing status is married/filing jointly and your combined compensation (earnings) are equal to the contributed amount. As a result, a couple can make regular contributions of up to $11,000 in 2014 (same in 2013).

You can wait as long as April 15 of the following year (the due date of your individual income tax return) to contribute to a traditional or Roth IRA account.
