What are the types of IRA?

Traditional IRA - For Individuals. Gives you tax exemption on your contributions now.

Roth IRA - For Individuals. Your withdrawals and earnings after retirement are tax-free.

SEP IRA - For self-employed individuals or small business owners.

The contribution limit for this IRA is much higher ($54,000), and you can contribute to a SEP IRA in addition to your traditional or Roth IRA. If you are self employed, this is an unbeatable investment.

Which IRA is the best for me?

There is only one rule of thumb: “Paying taxes on a smaller amount is better than paying taxes on a larger amount.”

  1. Contribute to a Roth IRA, if you can. If your income is higher than certain thresholds, you might not be eligible for this.
  2. Convert a traditional IRA to Roth IRA. In this case, you have to pay taxes on the gains if any, but then, it is a good trade-off.


If you are not eligible for Roth IRA, OR you think your tax bracket is going to be very low at retirement, opt for a traditional IRA.

Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTIONQ

How do I rollover my 401(k)?

Rollover your 401(k) from a previous employer to an IRA as soon as you can. Except in rare situations like if there are bonus contributions from your employer pending in your 401(k).

If you have a choice, opt for a ROTH-401(k), unless you have student loans that you want to pay off. For student loans 401(k) is better since the contributed amount is pre-tax.

The rollover process is typically very simple. All you need to do is fill in a few details, and upload details of your existing brokerage account.

QUESTIONQ

Is there a penalty to rollover my 401(k) to an IRA?

Use the 'direct rollover' i.e. directly move funds from one trustee to another and you will avoid the early withdrawal penalty. Typically, this involves contacting your employer and going through paperwork. You can choose an indirect rollover where funds are mailed to you first and you deposit them to an IRA, but that involves withholding of part of funds by your employer and it is best to opt for 'direct rollover', if possible.

qplum supports easy direct rollover of your 401(k) to an IRA. All you need to do is upload your existing 401(k) account statement, and digitally sign a transfer document.
