Traditional IRA Inherited

A Traditional IRA account may give you an immediate tax benefit because contributions are often tax deductible. Taxable distributions from an IRA can be taken without penalty starting at age 59½ and must be started by April 1st of the year following the year the account owner reaches 70½.

An inherited IRA is created when someone inherits an IRA after the death of the original owner. If you’ve inherited an IRA or an account in an employee-sponsored retirement plan, consider transferring it to a Galleon Inherited IRA and get professional, one-on-one guidance from Global Advisers. You’ll receive all the tax advantages of the IRA, as well as the ability to withdraw funds according to a set schedule over your lifetime.

Anyone with earned income is eligible to contribute to a Traditional IRA. However, there are Traditional IRA contribution limits. The maximum total annual contribution for all of your IRAs combined is:

AgeLimitCatch up amount
Under Age 50$6,000$0
Age 50 or older$7,000$1000

Account Features & Benefits

  • A retirement savings plan that allows an individual to contribute earnings until they are withdrawn.
  • Contributions are subject to annual limits depending on the age of the account owner and may or may not be deductible depending on the individual’s circumstances.
  • Earnings accumulate tax deferred until distributed to you at which time the earnings are subject to tax upon withdrawal.
  • A spouse may contribute to a separate account subject to the same limits.
  • Withdrawals made prior to age 59½ are subject to a 10% penalty unless certain special circumstances apply.
  • Distributions must begin by the account owner’s required beginning date (RBD), which is April 1 following the year that the account owner reaches age 70½.
  • Once the account owner reaches age 70½, he or she must withdraw at least a minimum amount called an annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD).
  • If an account owner fails to withdraw the full amount of the RMD annually, or fails to withdraw the RMD, there is a 50% tax penalty that may be imposed by the IRS on the amount not withdrawn.

US citizens living anywhere in the world and US resident aliens may open cash or margin Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs).

IRA margin accounts allow trading so the account can be fully invested as well as the ability to trade multiple currencies and multiple currency products, but are subject to the following limitations:

  • No cash borrowing (i.e. cannot have a debit balance or short stocks).
  • IRA accounts may be opened in any base currency, but when trading in a non-base currency product, a currency trade must be executed first as you cannot borrow currencies.
  • Withdrawals are permitted only in USD.*
  • No stock or option cross-margining.
  • No currency borrowing.
  • Futures trading in an IRA margin account is subject to substantially higher margin requirements than in a non-IRA margin account. Margin rates in an IRA margin account may meet or exceed three times the overnight futures margin requirement imposed in a non-IRA margin account.

Customers are advised to consult with their adviser and tax specialist for further details on IRA rules and regulations.
Residents of Canada may not open Individual Retirement Accounts.
