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

Traditional ira

  • 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

roth ira

  • Contributions (not earnings) without penalty can be withdrawn at any time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.
