As 2022 progresses, now is a great time to get in on an IRA bonus. If you currently don't have one, you might want to consider opening a new account to take advantage of the tax benefits. Whether you are doing a rollover IRA or creating a new IRA account, the money can be used to supplement other retirement options. We've done the research and gathered the best IRA investment promotions for you. Most of the offers apply to IRA transfers or when opening a new IRA.

The contribution limit for IRA accounts in 2018 is $6,000. If you're older than 50 years old, it's $7,000.

There are many options out there, and this list is in no particular order. We've included traditional discount brokers, but also alternative investments. For taxable account offers, check out our latest stock broker promotions.

Ally Invest — Get up to $3,000 Cash Bonus
