You get no tax break on your contributions, they are made with after tax dollars, but all of your investment gains can the be withdrawn tax free at the later of 5 years or at age 59 and a half, earlier if you are disabled, or if you want to make a first time home purchase.
Better yet, if you want to or need to, you can withdraw your contributions any time without a penalty.
They all want the same thing your money. And they want to do as little as possible to get it.
Here is the best advice I can give you. Open a Roth IRA , invest aggressively but wisely in stocks like INO. Never pay taxes on your gains only on your contributions. I did it, got a million in a Roth, everything I earn from here is tax free all my withdrawals are tax free, screw the pols, live tax free. It's the best revenge.
