Frequently asked

What is Acorns Later?

Right arrow

Acorns Later provides access to three types of Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) that offer customers an easy, automated way to save for retirement.

How much money do I need to open an Acorns Later account?

Right arrow

Just as with our investment accounts, you can begin investing in your Acorns Later account with just $5!

How is my Acorns Later portfolio selected?

Right arrow

Your Acorns Later portfolio is selected based on your age and the time until you reach age 69. 

 

Over time, Acorns adjusts your portfolio to help you stay on track toward your investment goals. For example, as you grow closer to retirement age, we may consider more conservative investments since your money may have less time in the market. 

 

In other words, we’ll automatically rebalance your portfolio as you age — all in the background of life!

Why should I invest in an IRA?

Right arrow

An Acorns Later IRA can help you easily invest in yourself, while receiving potential tax advantages. For example, you may be able to defer some taxes until retirement or even pay less in taxes.

The Difference Between Roth and Traditional IRA

 

Already have an IRA? No problem. You can have more than one IRA. If you prefer to have them in one place, you can roll over your existing IRA to an Acorns Later IRA. Simply contact our support team for step-by-step guidance.
