Retirement & IRAs
Tax-Advantaged Savings with an Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

When you contribute to a State Farm IRA, your money grows tax deferred. This gives your retirement savings the potential to grow faster than if in a taxable account. Plus, you may contribute to a State Farm IRA even if you participate in a retirement program at work.*

Both Traditional and Roth IRAs let your earnings grow tax-deferred until you make withdrawals. However, there are key differences between the two.

Traditional IRA

  • Contributions may be deductible on your federal income tax return
  • There are no income limitations for making contributions. However, deductibility is affected by income amounts.
  • Earnings are exempt from federal income tax return until withdrawn
  • Must start taking withdrawals at age 70½

For more information, see Traditional IRA.

Roth IRA

  • For federal income tax return purposes, contributions are not tax-deductible, but can be withdrawn any time — tax-free
  • Earnings are tax-free for qualified distributions
  • No mandatory withdrawals at any age
  • Contributions are subject to income limitations

For more information, see Roth IRA.

Mutual Funds Risk Disclosures

A 10 percent tax penalty may apply for withdrawals from tax-qualified products before age 59½.

* For Traditional IRAs, deductibility of contributions affected by participation in Employer retirement plan. Roth IRA has income phase out limits.

When rolling over a 401 (k) into an IRA it's important to do a full comparison on the differences in the guarantees and protections offered by each respective type of account as well as the differences in liquidity/loans, types of investments, fees, and any potential penalties.
