Tax-advantaged savings with an Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

Plan your future with an Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

When you contribute to a State Farm® Individual Retirement Account, 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 Individual Retirement Account even if you participate in a retirement program at work.1

Traditional and Roth IRAs

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  • Earnings are exempt from federal income tax return until withdrawn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 73

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  • For federal income tax return purposes, contributions are not tax-deductible, but can be withdrawn any time — tax-free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.

IRA contribution limits

The contribution limit for 2023 is $6,500 and 2024 is $7,000 or 100% of your earned income, whichever is less. The annual contribution limits apply to the combination of all of your Traditional and Roth IRAs.

If you are age 50 or older, you may make an additional $1,000 "catch-up" contribution to your IRA.

Rollover IRA

Have you ever changed jobs? Are between jobs? Or are retired?

If you have money in a retirement plan from a previous employer, you may be able to roll it over to a State Farm IRA without paying federal income taxes or penalty taxes. This may make it easier to manage your savings.
