A Traditional IRA is an individual retirement account that offers tax-deferred growth and taxes are not due until withdrawals in retirement. Traditional IRA rules dictate that after age 59½, you can withdraw your money whenever you wish and pay income taxes at that time. Contributions may be tax deductible, subject to IRS guidelines.
