The annual limits for 2017 IRA contributions are $5,500 for individuals under 50 years old, and $6,500 for those who are 50 and over. The limit is assessed across all of your accounts, so if you have reached the limit with one provider you are not allowed to contribute to another account. You can max out your IRA contributions by creating a new deposit in your Traditional IRA or Roth IRA.
There are additional contribution limits to a Roth IRA, and deduction limits to a Traditional IRA, based on your income and other factors. You can review these here, or speak with your tax advisor.
Betterment's 2017 IRA deposit deadline was 10pm EDT Apr. 16, 2018.
If you are linking a new bank account manually, please do so as far in advance of the deadline as possible to allow time for the verification deposit process to complete. Processing time varies by institution, and Betterment cannot guarantee that your bank will process any verification deposits in time to meet the April 16th IRA contribution deadline.
