IRAs (Individual Retirement Accounts)

The Traditional IRA

You can establish a traditional IRA whether or not you are covered by any other retirement plan. Wages or net earnings from self-employment can serve as the basis for a traditional IRA contribution. You and your spouse can make regular IRA contributions of up to $6,000 ($5,500 in 2018), provided your combined compensation (earnings) are at least equal to the contributed amount. As a result, a couple can make regular contributions of up to $12,000 in 2019 ($11,000 in 2018).

You can wait as long as April 15 of the following year (the due date of your individual income tax return) to contribute to a traditional or Roth IRA account.
