We are hard at work developing IRAs for Betterment. Those of you who’ve been patiently watching the countdown will know that the launch date was set for today. Thanks for your enthusiasm. We’re just as eager as you are to get IRAs up and running, but we want to make sure we have the best possible product.

We’ve delayed the launch by a week to complete the finishing touches. IRAs will officially kick off on December 19, 2011. That still gives you time to take advantage of tax benefits this year, and time to enjoy the simplest and smartest IRA for years to come.
