IRAs provide a tax-advantaged investment for retirement. We offer two types of IRAs: Traditional and Roth. We also offer IRA Certificates for higher savings. An IRA account is ideal for safely growing your savings for the long term.
If you're not sure which IRA is best for you, read our Roth vs. Traditional comparison below.
A Traditional IRA provides tax-deferred earnings and possible yearly deductions. To be eligible for a Traditional IRA you must be a taxpayer under the age of 70 with earned income. The Traditional IRA is a good choice if deductible contributions are more important to you than tax-exempt distributions; you have an employer retirement plan but would like to supplement your retirement savings; you do not have another IRA; or you want to split contributions between a Traditional IRA and a Roth IRA.
With a Roth IRA your withdrawals may receive tax-exempt treatment. There are no age restrictions for the Roth IRA but you must have earned income. To be eligible your modified adjusted gross income must be less than $166,000 for married taxpayers or $105,000 for single taxpayers. With the Roth IRA you are not required to make mandatory withdrawals after age 70 and you can continue to make contributions after age 70 while working.
