Because your golden years are for sitting on a beach, not sitting at a desk.
Traditional IRAs are potentially tax-deferred retirement plans; you don't pay taxes on your contributions until you withdraw the funds. Contributions can be made as long as you have earned income.
With a Roth IRA, you pay taxes upon deposit and withdraw the funds tax-free when you retire. Contributions can be made at any age without any required minimum distributions as long as you have earned income.
An education IRA is a tax-advantaged investment account for higher education, now more formally known as a Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA). With this educational IRA, parents and guardians can make non-deductible contributions for a child under the age of 18. The funds can be withdrawn tax-free when they are needed for educational purposes.
If you're self-employed or work for a participating employer, an SEP plan may be the ideal way to save for retirement. You may make contributions into your own and into each of your eligible employee's SEP plans. SEPs are available to all types of businesses: Sole proprietorships, partnerships and corporations. SEPs must be established under the employee's personal account.
