IRA contributions

For 2022, you can contribute up to $6,000 (under age 50) and $7,000 (50+) total across all of your IRAs, including those outside of Robinhood. You can either make a new IRA contribution that counts towards your annual limit or rollover funds from another retirement account to reinvest. In 2023, these contribution limits will increase to $6,500 for those under age 50 (or $7,500 for those age 50 or older).

For the 2022 tax year, you can only contribute to a Roth IRA if your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) is under $144,000 (single filers) or $214,000 (married couples filing jointly). For the 2023 tax year, the income limit is $153,000 if you’re single, and $228,000 if you’re filing jointly. Keep in mind, these limits don’t apply to traditional IRAs and can change annually. Visit the IRS website or consult a tax advisor for your specific situation.

Note

You can make prior-year contributions for the 2022 tax year until April 18, 2023 per IRS guidelines. After that date, you’ll only be able to make current year contributions for the 2023 tax year.
