If they have earned income, they can open a Roth IRA and contribute up to 100% of their earned income up to $5,500, assuming a single filing status. They are presumably in a low tax bracket (a Regular IRA deduction would not be worth much) and it can grow tax free for a long time. That's a huge benefit. The hardest part of the strategy might be finding a brokerage account with low minimums and low trading costs, but they are available. | 12.29.15 @ 21:09
