  • Choose "Edit" from the top menu
  • Click on “IRAs”
  • Click on “Create IRA”
  • Choose the account type you want to open

If you do not have a Retirement milestone yet:

  • Click on "Create Milestone"
  • Select the Retirement milestone
  • Click "Get Started"
  • Answer the series of questions about this new milestone
  • Choose the appropriate IRA account type when asked (Traditional, Roth or SEP)
  • Confirm Activation of the Tax Protection Package (link to Do I need Tax Protection* for an IRA?)
  • Set Annual Deposit Limit
  • Enter the amount of the first deposit
  • Enter the auto-deposit amount
  • Set the Funding Strategy
