Benefit from a Traditional IRA

For Tax-Deferred Growth

You work hard for your money. Why not have your money work for you with a traditional IRA for your retirement.

If you have earned income, a traditional IRA may provide you with tax benefits, since your contributions may be deductible and your returns grow tax deferred until you make a qualified withdrawal.

Traditional IRA

  • There is no minimum investment requirement to open a Fifth Third Securities IRA
  • Deadline to open and fund for 2012: April 15, 2013
  • Maximum contribution for 2012: $5,000 ($6,000 age 50 and over)
  • Individuals with earned income (includes a spouse with earned income, if married and filing jointly), and who are under age 70½ by year end
  • Spousal IRA for spouses under age 70½ by year end, if married, filing jointly
  • Contributions may be tax deductible
  • Earnings grow tax deferred
  • Heirs may also benefit from tax-deferred growth and income
  • Required Minimum Distributions (RMD) begin at age 70½
  • Withdrawals made before age 59½ are usually subject to a 10% IRS penalty (with certain exceptions) and subject to taxes on withdrawals
