Live happily ever after.

Save for your future with special tax advantages.

Choose a Traditional, Roth, or Coverdell Education IRA (Individual Retirement Account), and then choose a variable-rate IRA Savings account or a fixed-rate IRA Certificate.

Traditional IRA

A Traditional IRA offers tax-deferred earnings and the possibility for tax-deductible contributions. All earnings in the Traditional IRA are not taxed until they are withdrawn.*

Roth IRA

The Roth IRA allows you to contribute (depending on your income) after-tax dollars with earnings growing tax free. You pay no taxes when you withdraw the money, provided you have had the account for at least five years and you’re age 59 or older. In addition, you may withdraw without penalty, up to $10,000 for a first-time home purchase. Another Roth IRA benefit is that you don’t have to begin withdrawing money at age 70 1/2, unlike a traditional IRA.*

Coverdell Education IRA

Save for a child’s higher education expenses. You can invest up to $2,000 a year per child younger than 18, depending on your income. Earnings on Education IRA contributions grow tax free. You cannot deduct contributions; however, when you withdraw funds, you pay no taxes or withdrawal penalties if they’re used for qualified higher education expenses before the beneficiary reaches age 30. Unused funds, however, may be rolled over to an Education IRA for another child.*

FAQs

An IRA account at the credit union is an insured tax shelter. You can make deposits into it and have them insured up to $500,000. The rate of return on IRAs at the credit union are set by the credit union and you have a choice to use the IRA Share Savings, and/or an IRA Certificate of Deposit. Your employer would be the best source of information on what they offer.

This amount is determined by the IRS and can be found here: https://www.irs.gov/retirement-plans/plan-participant-employee/retirement-topics-ira-contribution-limits

You can take a withdrawal at any time, but there may be tax implications for doing so if it is before retirement age. We do not provide loans from IRAs at the credit union.

Both Traditional and Roth IRAs provide tax breaks. But it’s a matter of timing when you get to claim them. Traditional IRA contributions are tax-deductible on both state and federal tax returns for the year you make the contribution; withdrawals in retirement are taxed at ordinary income tax rates. Roth IRAs provide no tax break for contributions, but earnings and withdrawals are generally tax-free. Please consult your tax professional or financial planner for further guidance.
