By adding money to your Stash Retire account, a little at a time, you could be setting yourself up for a healthy nest egg. With Stash Retire, you can choose from either a Traditional IRA or a Roth IRA and each account type has unique tax-advantaged benefits. It is best to consult with a tax specialist to understand which is best for you and how you may benefit from the tax-advantaged nature of an IRA.
With a Stash Retire Roth IRA, you are contributing post-tax money, which allows for your account to grow tax-free, meaning you won’t pay taxes on your money when you take it out at retirement.
