There are a couple of different ways to save for retirement. Two of the most common types of retirement accounts are 401(k)s and individual retirement accounts (IRAs).
A 401(k) is a retirement account that can be offered by private companies. Employees commonly contribute with pretax dollars.
With an IRA, you can invest your contributions in almost any security, and investment returns grow tax-deferred while they remain in your account. There are two kinds: traditional and Roth IRAs. Stash offers both types of IRAs, no matter which subscription plan you have.
