IRA stands for Individual Retirement Account, and refers to money that you put away for retirement, on which you get a tax break. It’s different from a 401K in part because you only get to put money in a 401K if your employer offers you this option. I’m putting money in my IRA, so that I can have enough money to live on when I retire.
