Last week, President Obama signed a presidential memo directing the Department of Treasury to create the government-backed retirement accounts. myRA is similar to a Roth IRA. Individuals can contribute as little as $5 per paycheck with after-tax dollars. Then, the account-holders can take out money without paying additional taxes.
