Traditional & roth IRA plans
Grow your savings
and tax-free retirement withdrawals
Whether you choose a traditional individual retirement account (IRA) or Roth IRA, they both offer tax-advantaged ways to save for retirement. First and foremost, the concept of any retirement account is to set aside your financial resources and money for when you are no longer producing income. In other words, for retirement.
Traditional IRA (Individual Retirement Account) is an individual retirement account that allows you to make contributions on
a pre-tax basis and pay no taxes until you withdraw the money.
A Roth IRA (Individual Retirement Account) is a retirement savings account that allows you to contribute to it with after-tax dollars.
Who is eligible?
Anyone under age 72 with earned income, regardless of income level. A non-working spouse may also contribute up to the maximum amount allowable, as stated above.
Anyone with earned income can open a Roth IRA. There are income limitations for holding
a Roth IRA and contribution limits for individuals over 50.

Saving for the future is essential
There are no guarantees about how much money you will receive from Social Security once retired and whether it will or won’t be enough
to supplement other sources of savings to sustain your living. Therefore, a sound retirement strategy is always to save in multiple financial vehicles. PNA annuities can become one of them. A PNA annuity is a great tool for setting money aside and allowing funds to grow. The question is, which annuity is right for you?
Think for a second about which tax advantage you prefer. Would rather put off paying taxes on your savings until you retire, or choose to get it over with and pay taxes on your savings immediately? The right thing to do is consult your accountant or tax specialist and learn what makes sense for you. Then, choose an annuity account that meets your needs.
Despite your choice, one thing is sure; you must start thinking about your future today. The sooner you start, the better off you’ll be once you retire.
You can start small and make contributions that agree with your budget, but the main point is to start now. PNA is here to help.
PNA offers a traditional IRA and Roth IRA retirement account that allows you to make the right choice. Both are great long-term savings tools, so call your tax specialist first, and give PNA a call at 800-621-3723 to make an informed decision that best fits your retirement goals.
