The CARES Act waives the 2020 Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for IRA holders and participants in defined contribution qualified retirement plans. This includes RMDs for the 2020 calendar tax year, as well as 2019 first-time RMDs required to be taken by April 1, 2020 that were not already taken in 2019. The waiver for 2020 also extends to beneficiaries, including those who have elected to deplete the account under the five-year rule, in effect extending the period to six years.

Tax-Advantaged Savings with an Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

Plan your future with an Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

When you contribute to a State Farm® Individual Retirement Account, your money grows tax deferred. This gives your retirement savings the potential to grow faster than if in a taxable account. Plus, you may contribute to a State Farm Individual Retirement Account even if you participate in a retirement program at work.*

Both Traditional and Roth IRAs let your earnings grow tax-deferred until you make withdrawals. However, there are key differences between the two.

Traditional IRA

  • Contributions may be deductible on your federal income tax return
  • There are no income limitations for making contributions. However, deductibility is affected by income amounts.
  • Earnings are exempt from federal income tax return until withdrawn
  • Must start taking withdrawals at age 72

For more information, see Traditional IRA.

Roth IRA

  • For federal income tax return purposes, contributions are not tax-deductible, but can be withdrawn any time — tax-free
  • Earnings are tax-free for qualified distributions
  • No mandatory withdrawals at any age
  • Contributions are subject to income limitations
  • No age restriction for contributions to a Roth IRA as long as you have earned income

For more information, see Roth IRA.

The contribution limit for 2020 and 2021 is $6,000 or 100% of your earned income, whichever is less. The annual contribution limits apply to the combination of all of your Traditional and Roth IRAs.

If you are age 50 or older, you may make an additional $1,000 "catch-up" contribution to your IRA.
