Traditional IRA

If deferring taxes on part of your income is your best tax strategy, consider a Traditional IRA. This approach can help you pay less in taxes now, using pre-tax dollars to build your principal for more earnings later. Contributions may not be tax-deductible for those covered by employer plans with income over certain levels. In most cases, contributions cannot be withdrawn without IRS penalty until after age 59 ½, but there are exceptions, such as for higher-education expenses and first-time home purchases.

Roth IRA

Contributions to a Roth IRA are made with after-tax, rather than pre-tax dollars, but earnings are federal tax-free and IRS penalty-free if certain conditions are met. Unlike a Traditional IRA, contributions are allowed after age 70 ½. Individuals and couples with income too high for a tax-deductible contribution to a Traditional IRA may want to consider at Roth IRA.


The IRA CD offers guaranteed earnings and is FDIC insured. We offer a “no fee” IRA transfer option.

Contact your tax or legal advisor to answer specific questions about eligibility, distributions, penalties and how they may apply to your individual situation.
