Dollars & Sense: Roth vs traditional IRA
FRESNO, Calif. (FOX26) —
Derek Elrod, a certified financial advisor and president of RB Capital Management in Fresno, visited Great Day to talk about the differences between a Roth and traditional IRA.
Derek says there is no one right answer for everyone but gives some general rules to follow.
The main difference is you pay the taxes up front with a Roth compared pre-taxed contributions with a traditional IRA or 401(k).
Typically Roth is better if you start saving under 40-years-old.
If you save with a pre-tax IRA and don't invest the pre-taxed savings, then a Roth would be better.
