Start planning for a comfortable retirement now with an Individual Retirement Account (IRA).
It's never too early to start savings for retirement — the earlier the better. Your savings will compound interest over time and your nest egg will grow exponentially larger!
Traditional vs. Roth
There are two primary types of IRA accounts and you will have to choose which one you want to designate your retirement account as. There are contribution restrictions and tax benefits to each. There is no monthly/annual fees for these accounts assessed by the Credit Union. Contact a tax adviser for the best IRA option for you and your family.
- Contributions are often tax-deductible - you pay less in income taxes in the year for which you made the contribution
- You are eligible if you have earned compensation
- Earnings are tax deferred until time of withdrawal
- "Catch up" contributions available to those 50 years of age
- Contributions (not earnings) without penalty can be withdrawn at any time
- You must have earned income in order to open a Roth IRA
- There is no mandatory distribution age
- Early withdrawals of earnings can result in tax and a penalty
IRA Savings vs. IRA Certificate
Members can choose for their IRA to be a savings accumulation account or open an IRA Certificate. The accounts can be funded with cash or a transfer from an IRA account at another financial institution.
