An IRA is an Individual Retirement Account set up at a financial institution that allows an individual to save for retirement with tax-free growth or on a tax-deferred basis. There are three main types of IRAs: Traditional, Roth, and Education, each with different advantages.

How many times a year am I required to take a required minimum distribution from my IRA?

What happens to my IRA if I die?
Funds from an IRA are passed to the beneficiary upon the passing of the IRA holder. Be sure to keep your beneficiaries up to date! IRA funds are separate from your membership account and require a separate beneficiary form.
Many people think of money as linear—it comes in, it goes out. It's associated with immediate need or gratification. Sometimes you save a little. In fact, money is multi-dimensional. It can do more than one task at a time—like create future savings...
One of the most common reasons you save money is to achieve goals — some you'd like to accomplish in the short term, like in the next year or two, or maybe even five. Some you'd like to accomplish in the long term, in the next ten years or even longer
