Who are these accounts for?

Anyone from a newborn, someone in the middle of their career to those in retirement

How much can you deposit?

This amount is unlimited.  You can put in as much as you’d like.

How are these accounts taxed? 

The interest income, dividend income and capital gains and losses are realized and recognized in the year earned.  It is taxed as earned.

Are there any restrictions on the amount that you can withdraw? 

No, you can take out all the funds as needed when needed.  No restrictions.
