, but I'm still wondering about the IRA specifically. I've been wondering about this a long time, so any feedback, experiences would be helpful. What banks have mefites had good experiences with their IRAs? Should I just stick with the bank that has my checking account and have it all in one place? Or is investigating other bank's track records with investments imperative? Are there resources for comparing banks' IRA packages other than just visiting their websites and comparing? Why doesn't ING offer IRAs?
Please help this financially ignorant person, and be easy with the snarkiness, I'm an easy target.
