American Heritage Traditional IRA

A Traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is a way to put money away for retirement and save on taxes: you receive a tax deduction on the contributions you make to your IRA account each year.

Your tax-deferred status exists only if you keep the money in your IRA. If you remove funds from your IRA account before you reach 59 ½ years of age without a qualified reason, you will pay taxes on the withdrawn funds plus a 10 percent early withdrawal penalty. Once you are 59 ½ years of age or older, you can withdraw funds; you will pay taxes on the withdrawn funds as ordinary income. You must begin taking a Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA account no later than 70 ½ years of age.
