- Contributions to your IRA may be made in "lump sums" or by regular deposits throughout the year
- Dividends are compounded daily and paid monthly.
- IRA Share Certificates are also available with a minimum deposit of $1,000 and terms for 6 months to 60 months

A Traditional IRA is an account that allows you to defer taxes on your earnings until they are withdrawn. Also, certain contributions may be tax deductible in the year they are made. The Traditional IRA is designed for members that are looking for a tax savings now and who expect a lesser tax burden after they reach the age of 59-1/2. Contact us for more information.
The Roth IRA is an account that features tax-free withdrawals for certain distribution reasons after a five-year holding period. Since Roth IRA contributions are nondeductible and taxed in the year they are earned, members who expect to be in a higher tax bracket when they retire may benefit more from a Roth IRA than from a Traditional IRA. Unlike the Traditional IRA, there is no requirement to begin taking distributions at age 70-1/2. Contact us for more information.
Education Savings Account
The Education Savings Account is an account that features tax-free withdrawals for a child's higher education expenses. Contributions are nondeductible, therefore unlike the Traditional IRA, qualified distributions from an Education Savings Account are penalty free and tax-free. Please contact us for more information.
