Frequently abbreviated as "IRA" though that acronym has another common meanings as well.

Some employers match investments in an IRA — which is generally recognized as a good investment for the employee.

There are many kinds of IRAs and many restrictions on available tax benefits. Generally a limited amount of invested income can be deducted from current taxes though tax (possibly at a higher rate) will need to paid when money is withdrawn from the account. A type of IRA identified as a Roth IRA reverses the tax benefit. Taxes are paid on the money invested, but there is no tax on that investment or its earnings upon withdrawal.
