Question (Relevant to the Series 6Series 7, Series 62Series 65, Series 66, and Series 99): 

A client wants to open a custodial IRA account for his minor daughter who has earned a couple thousand dollars babysitting. Which of the following would be the best choice?


A. Traditional IRA

B. Roth IRA



Correct Answer: B. Roth IRA

Rationale: SEP and Simple IRAs are for small businesses. A traditional IRA would work but since the client’s daughter doesn’t have enough income to take advantage of the tax deduction benefit from a traditional IRA, the Roth IRA is the best choice since it will permit her to eventually withdraw tax-free.
