Benefits of IRAs

Our Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) allow you to choose from a wide variety of Traditional and Roth IRA investments, including IRA Savings and IRA certificates with benefits like:

We offer two different types of IRAs, Traditional and Roth, with different tax benefits.

Account Type
Traditional IRA
Roth IRA
What is it?
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. Catch-up contributions for qualified individuals.
A Roth IRA allows you to invest money by making nondeductible after-tax contributions that grow tax-free. The key difference between a Roth IRA and a Traditional IRA is that, in a Roth IRA, money is not taxed when withdrawn for qualified distributions. Income limits apply. Consult a tax professional to determine if converting assets from a Traditional IRA will be beneficial for your long-term retirement savings plan.
Who is it good for?
Individuals who qualify for a current tax deduction or who anticipate being in a lower tax bracket during retirement
Individuals who do not require or qualify for an immediate tax deduction.
How do earnings accumulate?
Earnings accumulate on a tax-deferred basis.
All earnings accumulate tax-free.
