Traditional vs Roth IRA

There are advantages to both Traditional and Roth IRAs.

One of the most significant differences is the time at which you see the most payback advantage. A Traditional IRA provides potential tax relief today, while a Roth IRA has the potential for the greatest tax benefit when you retire.

Select a traditional IRA if you foresee upcoming expenses important enough to take the tax hit. Choosing a Roth IRA is choosing to truly prioritize your retirement, with built-in tax incentives to let the money stay put. Sutton Bank's personal bankers will guide you through the process to find the best fit for you.
