plus $8K-$16K/year via Backdoor in 2024

Roth IRA earnings (tax-free growth) are available after age 59½.*

Roth IRA Earnings
As long as your account has been open for 5 years:

  • Access earnings anytime if age 59½, penalty-free
This 5-year-old account rule also applies earnings on conversions made after age-59½ so the sooner you open the Roth IRA the better!

Roth IRA conversions can be withdrawn anytime, penalty-free at age 59½,

or after five years if under age 59½.

The Backdoor Roth IRA is a conversion.
