Individual Retirement Account (IRA)
An IRA is a type of account established by congress to assist people with planning for their retirement needs. Generally, money put into an IRA cannot be taken out before age 59 1/2 without penalty from the IRS (there are exceptions to this rule). The hope of Congress was that by establishing these retirement plans, people who do not have retirement plans available to them at their place of employment would begin a savings plan using this type of account.
