Individual Retirement Savings (IRA)
Flexible options that give you the power to choose how and when you save for retirement.
Traditional or Roth IRA
Federally Insured by NCUA
Certificates of Deposit (CDs)
Share Savings Account
Contributions are tax deductible if you are single, or married and neither spouse is an active participant in a qualified retirement plan, regardless of income. Many retirees find themselves in a lower tax bracket than they were in pre-retirement, so the tax-deferral means the money may be taxed at a lower rate. Penalty-free withdrawals before age 59 for first-time home purchases or to pay for qualified higher education expenses.
You can choose to open either a share savings account or certificate of deposit for this type of IRA.
Earnings grow tax-free on after-tax contributions, and can be withdrawn penalty-free for a first-time home purchase, higher education expense, medical expenses, in the event of your death or permanent disability, or if you are at least 59 ½ years of age. You can choose to open either a share savings account or certificate of deposit for this type of IRA.
