Can I contribute to a traditional or Roth IRA if I’m covered by a retirement plan at work? Yes, you can contribute to a traditional and/or Roth IRA even if you participate in an employer-sponsored retirement plan (including a SEP or SIMPLE IRA plan).
Moreover, can I deduct my IRA contribution if I have a 401k?
Yes, you can have both accounts and many people do. The traditional individual retirement account (IRA) and 401(k) provide the benefit of tax-deferred savings for retirement. Depending on your tax situation, you may also be able to receive a tax deduction for the amount you contribute to a 401(k) and IRA each tax year.

How much can I contribute to my IRA if I have a 401k?
For 2020 and 2021, there’s a $6,000 limit on taxable contributions to retirement plans. Those aged 50 or over can contribute another $1,000. In the eyes of the IRS, your contribution to a traditional IRA reduces your taxable income by that amount and, thus, reduces the amount you owe in taxes.
Once you max out your 401(k), consider putting your leftover money into an IRA, HSA, annuity, or a taxable account.
Both 401(k)s and IRAs have valuable tax benefits, and you can contribute to both at the same time. The main difference between 401(k)s and IRAs is that employers offer 401(k)s, but individuals open IRAs (using brokers or banks). IRAs typically offer more investments; 401(k)s allow higher annual contributions.
