IRAs

We make planning for retirement easy.

Traditional IRAs


A Traditional IRA allows you to make investments that will grow tax-deferred until you remove money from your account. Your contributions to a Traditional IRA may be tax-deductible depending on your participation in a workplace retirement plan and certain income limitations.

  • No minimum balance required to open an IRA
  • Insured by the NCUA up to $250,000 and separate from other accounts*
  • Earnings grow tax-deferred until withdrawn**
  • May be used for first time home purchase or education**
  • Catch up contributions may be made for certain individuals**
  • Dividend rates for IRAs are the same as regular savings and certificate accounts
  • Go to the Calculators page to learn how much you should save each month, how much you can save over time, even how to save a million dollars!

* Traditional and Roth IRAs at one credit union are insured in the aggregate to $250,000, and separate and apart from insurance on other credit union accounts. Retirement account insurance protection applies to credit union accounts, not investments.

** Consult your tax advisor who can evaluate your individual situation with regard to IRAs.

Roth IRAs


A Roth IRA allows you to invest money by making nondeductible after-tax contributions that grow tax-deferred. The key difference between a Roth IRA and a Traditional IRA is that, in a Roth IRA, money is not taxed when withdrawn for qualified distributions.

Although there are income limitations, you may receive greater tax savings and more distribution flexibility with a Roth IRA than with a Traditional IRA. It may be a solution when looking for tax savings in the future, rather than today.

  • Both savings and certificates accounts are available
  • Insured by the NCUA up to $250,000 and separate from other accounts*
  • May be used for higher education, penalty free** 
  • Contributions in a Roth IRA have already been taxed
  • There is no 70½ age limit on making contributions
  • Go to the Calculators page to learn how much you should save each month, how much you can save over time, even how to save a million dollars!
