Get Answers to Common IRA Questions
What is an IRA?
An individual retirement arrangement (IRA) is a way to save money for retirement with certain tax advantages.
Can I have more than one IRA?
Yes – there is no limit on the number of IRAs you can own. Maintaining multiple IRAs may offer certain benefits, such as the ability to diversify your retirement savings or channel certain portions of your savings to specific beneficiaries such as heirs or charities.
What types of IRA accounts does TradeStation offer?
TradeStation offers four types of IRAs: Traditional IRA, Roth IRA, SEP IRA, and SIMPLE IRA.

A rollover of retirement plan assets to an IRA is not your only option. Carefully consider all of your available options which may include but not be limited to keeping your assets in your former employer’s plan; rolling over assets to a new employer’s plan; or taking a cash distribution (taxes and possible withdrawal penalties may apply). Prior to a decision, be sure to understand the benefits and limitations of your available options and consider factors such as differences in investment related expenses, plan or account fees, available investment options, distribution options, legal and creditor protections, the availability of loan provisions, tax treatment, and other concerns specific to your individual circumstances.
