What's an IRA and how does it work?

An individual retirement account (IRA) allows you to save and invest money for your retirement with tax advantages. A Roth IRA offers tax-free growth potential on after-tax contributions. For a traditional IRA, your investments have the opportunity to grow tax-deferred with before-tax and after-tax contributions.

Each year the IRS sets a maximum amount that you can contribute across all of your IRAs, including those outside of Robinhood. For 2022, the contribution limit is $6,000 for people under age 50, and $7,000 for people age 50 and over. In 2023, those limits will increase to $6,500 and $7,500. You can either make a new IRA contribution that counts towards your annual limit or rollover funds from another retirement account to reinvest.

Robinhood Retirement is reimagining IRAs by offering a 1% IRA Match on eligible contributions with no employer necessary. Robinhood Retirement is giving you a match of 1% of eligible contributions without needing to have an employer plan.

What types of retirement accounts do you offer?

Robinhood offers two different types of retirement accounts: traditional IRA and Roth IRA.

A traditional IRA saves for your retirement and gives you tax advantages. This means you may be able to deduct qualified contributions now and pay taxes later. Your contributions may be fully or partially deductible, depending on your filing status and income.

A Roth IRA allows you to contribute after-tax dollars. This means you pay taxes on contributions now with tax-free withdrawals later. Any earnings are tax and penalty free if they meet certain requirements.

For more details, see contributions to IRAs from the IRS.

What's the IRA Match?

The IRA Match is an extra 1% that Robinhood adds to eligible contributions to your IRA. It's not counted toward your annual contribution limits and is typically available to invest immediately.

The IRA contribution limits for 2023 are $6,500 for people under age 50, which means they can earn up to $65 extra. For people age 50 and over, the limit is $7,500, which means they can earn up to $75 on top of their contributions.

How do I earn the 1% IRA Match and when is it paid out?

You can earn the 1% IRA Match by contributing at least $1 to your Robinhood IRA account from any linked external bank account up to the annual IRA contribution limits set by the IRS.

The IRA Match will be available in your account and ready to invest at or around the same time as your eligible contribution. You'll typically see it in your account instantly. Also, to avoid the possibility of an Early IRA Match Removal Fee, you'll need to keep the contributions in your IRA for at least 5 years from the date you contribute. See the IRA Match FAQ for more details about how it works.

Is the Robinhood IRA Match the same as an employer's 401(k) match?

The Robinhood IRA Match and employer 401(k) match both offer matches on contributions, but they aren't the same. For starters, the IRA Match does not count toward your annual contribution limit so you have more to invest. Also, you don't have to work for Robinhood to earn an IRA Match. In contrast, a 401(k) employer match is a contribution that an employer makes to an employee's retirement account. It is possible to have both an employer 401(k) match, and earn the IRA Match with a Robinhood IRA.

What types of investments are allowed in an IRA?

At Robinhood: stocks, ETFs, and soon you'll be able to trade options in your IRA, if eligible.

What are the tax advantages of investing in an IRA?

Investments have the potential to grow tax-free or tax-deferred!

For a traditional IRA, you generally pay taxes later. You'll make tax-deductible contributions (depending on income, your 401(k), and if you qualify) and investments have the opportunity to grow tax-deferred. Learn more about IRA deduction limits from the IRS.

If you need the money before you turn age 59 ½, you'll pay a 10% penalty on top of the expected income taxes you'd owe. Withdrawals after reaching age 59 ½ are generally taxed as ordinary income. Required minimum distributions begin at age 73. In certain IRS-approved situations, you may take early withdrawals from an IRA with no penalty. Learn more

For a Roth IRA, you pay taxes upfront. You'll make after-tax contributions and any potential earnings can grow tax-free. Please note, Roth IRA contributions may be limited based on your filing status and income.

Note: Withdrawals of Roth IRA contributions are always tax and penalty free. However, any earnings withdrawn could be subject to both taxes and penalties, unless you've reached age 59½ and met the 5 year holding period requirement or you meet a qualifying exception.

For tax advantage details, see the IRS website or consult with a tax advisor for information specific to your situation.

Can I roll over existing retirement accounts into Robinhood?

Yes, you'll be able to rollover old retirement accounts, like a 401(k) or 403(b), into Robinhood IRAs.

What's a recommended portfolio?

A portfolio is a group of investments, and each recommended portfolio includes 5-8 exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that we choose for you with an algorithm-based investment process we built. Our process uses your answers to our questions to match you to a portfolio that makes sense for you.


Funds being contributed into or distributed from retirement accounts may entail tax consequences. Contributions are limited and withdrawals before age 59½ may be subject to a penalty tax.
