This January marks the 20th anniversary of the Roth IRA. First made available to investors in January of 1998, a Roth IRA is an individual retirement account funded with after-tax dollars that provides tax-free growth and income for retirement.

Because Roth IRAs are such an important part of many people’s retirement income plan, I have decided to make 2018 The Year of The Roth.
