Traditional Retirement Account
A Traditional Individual Retirement Account (T-IRA) is a special savings plan authorized by the Federal government to help you accumulate funds for your retirement, tax deferred. The earnings you accumulate in your T-IRA, including interest and dividends, remain tax deferred until withdrawn. Every individual who has earned income or receives alimony may contribute to a Traditional IRA. Income from other sources such as investments or inheritances does not qualify. Contributions may not be made for or after the year in which participant reaches the age of 70 1/2.
Rules for Spousal IRAs: Spousal IRA rules enable married couples filing jointly to contribute the maximum amount to separate Roth IRA accounts even if one spouse has no earned income.
The IRS allows distributions any time after age 59 1/2, but must start by April 1st following the year in which the participant reaches age 70 1/2.
There is a 10% IRS penalty for withdrawing all or part of the account before age 59 1/2, with some exceptions.

A Roth IRA is an individual retirement account to which participants are able to make annual non-deductible contributions. Unlike a Traditional IRA in which your earnings are tax-deferred, Roth IRA earnings can be tax-free. With a Roth IRA, unlike a Traditional IRA, contributions can be made even after you have reached age 70 1/2, provided you have earned income. (See special rules for Spousal IRAs.)
Participation in an employer sponsored retirement plan such as a 401(k) does not affect your ability to contribute to a Roth IRA, provided you meet the income guidelines.
Qualified distributions may be made at any time, tax and penalty free. Non-qualified distributions may be taxable and subject to an IRS 10% early distributions penalty. Withdrawals will be taxed only on the amount withdrawn each year, on which taxes have not previously been paid. Remaining funds continue to accumulate tax-deferred, and possibly tax-free, earnings.

Coverdell Education Savings Account
The Coverdell Education Savings Account is a tax-advantaged savings account created to help fund qualified education expenses. The types of qualified expenses include both public and private elementary and high schools. Contributions are non-deductible, earnings are tax-deferred and distributions are tax free if used to pay for the account beneficiary’s qualified educational expenses.
Anyone — whether related to the account beneficiary or not — may contribute toward the combined maximum of $2,000 to a child’s Coverdell Savings Account, depending on their Modified Adjusted Gross Income. Contributing to a Coverdell Education Savings Account does not affect your ability to contribute to a Roth or T-IRA. Rollovers from a Roth or T-IRA are not allowed. A Coverdell Savings Account must have one responsible individual, a parent or legal guardian of the child/beneficiary, to oversee the account. This person decides when funds will be withdrawn and if and when funds will be rolled over to the Coverdell Savings Account of another family member.
