Find the IRA to meet your retirement goals

An IRA, or Individual Retirement Account, is a personal savings plan exclusively for retirement while providing possible tax advantages¹ and is ideal for the member who is seeking:

  • A risk-free, competitive, dividend earning retirement savings plan
  • To avoid paying administrative or commission fees
  • An insured investment up to $250,000 per account
  • To rollover or direct transfer money from an existing IRA from another entity or qualified retirement plan

What is the difference?

Roth IRAs

Contributions are not tax-deductible; however, the money in your Roth IRA, including earnings, may be withdrawn tax-free when completed as a qualified distribution.¹
