Learning The Roth IRA Basics

Before you set up a Roth IRA or use one to invest for retirement, you need a firm grasp of the fundamentals.

For instance, it stands to reason you should know what a Roth IRA is. Right?

But in addition to that basic question, you need to know as much as possible about the attributes which differentiate a Roth IRA from other commonly used retirement accounts.

Knowing the key differences can result in a much bigger retirement nest egg.

For instance, did you know you can withdraw funds from your Roth IRA early to pay for qualified education expenses such as college tuition and NOT owe an early withdrawal penalty?

And did you know that this provision isn't extended to you exclusively? It can also be used to fund the college education of your children and grandchildren...

Knowing these little tidbits of information can mean the difference between financial struggle and financial freedom.

So take the time to read through each of the links below...
