Individual Retirement Accounts

Save for retirement or education expenses, and enjoy potential tax advantages during your working years with our IRA options. They are similar to regular savings but your dividends are exempt from federal and state income taxes until withdrawn. Options include:

  • Traditional – Contribute income before it’s taxed and enjoy tax-deferred earnings until retirement when withdrawals are subject to taxes.
  • Roth – Contribute income after taxes and enjoy tax-free earnings until retirement when withdrawals can be tax-free.
  • Coverdell Education Savings – A tax-deferred plan that lets you save funds for college.
