FAQs from PNC Investments

What is an IRA?

The two main types of IRAs are Traditional and Roth IRAs. Traditional IRAs allow you to make a tax-deferred yearly contribution. For persons who are age 50 or older, a special catch-up provision allows you to contribute an additional $1,000. This account grows tax-deferred until you begin to take distributions, which you can do after you turn age 59-1/2. Roth IRAs require you to pay income taxes in the year that you make the contribution. Roth IRAs grow tax-deferred, and if you keep the account for at least five years and are at least 59-1/2, the entire account can be distributed tax- and penalty-free.

What is a Managed Account?

These accounts are managed on your behalf by a registered investment advisor, offering customization and convenience.
