Personal Retirement

Accounts that help you—not your money—retire.

Saving for a secure retirement doesn’t need to be complicated.
An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is a savings account that comes with tax advantages to help you save for retirement. We offer both Traditional and Roth IRAs to help get you there.

Our Traditional IRA

Our Traditional IRA is a great way to build your savings and financial security for retirement.
Your earnings accrue on a tax-deferred basis.
  • $50 minimum opening deposit
  • Contributions may be tax-deductible if you are not an active participant in an employer retirement plan; your ability to take a deduction also depends on your income for the year. See IRS guidelines
  • Must have earned income and not reach age 70½ by end of year
  • Annual IRA contributions limits are set for each year; see IRS guidelines
  • Annual limit applies to any combination of IRA plans

Our Roth IRA

Build your retirement savings with this great account.
  • $50 minimum opening deposit
  • You may contribute to a Roth IRA even after age 70 ½, with earned income
  • Contributions will not be tax deductible, but the contributions and earnings can be withdrawn tax-free
  • There are no required minimum distributions after reaching age 70 ½
