Individual Retirement Accounts

Invest in a comfortable retirement

An IRA (Individual Retirement Account) is a special type of savings plan that helps you save for retirement.  IRA’s are a secure way to save for the future, require little administration, and are easy to set up.

Traditional IRA accounts are a special type of investment that allows your earnings to grow tax-deferred. You can invest up to $6,000 per year in a Traditional IRA account (or up to $7,000 if you are 50 or older).

Consider If: You would like to reduce your taxable income now, and you don’t plan on making withdrawals until retirement. 

Tax Advantages: You may be able to reduce your current income taxes now.  You don’t pay taxes until you take money out, typically when you are in a lower tax bracket.

Withdrawals:  Withdrawals are taxable income.  Withdrawals made before age 59 1/2 could include a 10% penalty.

Mandatory Withdrawals: At age 70 1/2 


A Roth IRA is an individual retirement account that offers tax-free growth and tax-free withdrawals in retirement. As long as you’ve owned your account for 5 years and you’re age 59 1/2 or older, you can withdraw your money without incurring a penalty. 

Consider If: You would like more flexibility for withdrawals, want to reduce your taxable income, or are planning to work past age 70.

Tax Advantages: All earnings grow tax-free, and you don’t pay taxes when you take money out of the account, typically when you are in a lower tax bracket.

Withdrawals: Earnings are tax-free if they’ve been in the account for 5 years and you are at least 59 1/2. Contributions are non-deductible and can be withdrawn anytime with no penalty or taxation.
