Traditional IRA: A Traditional IRA is a special savings plan authorized by the Federal government designed to help you accumulate funds for your retirement. A Traditional IRA allows you to defer taxes on your earnings until they are withdrawn. Also, certain contributions may be tax deductible in the year they are made.
Roth IRA: A Roth IRA is a special savings plan authorized by the Federal government designed to help you accumulate funds for your retirement. Contributions to a Roth IRA are non-deductible, but all withdrawals, including earnings are tax-free provided the account has been open for five years and the IRA owner is 59 ½ or older. Unlike a Traditional IRA, owners are not required to take distributions once they reach 70 ½.
Coverdell Education Savings Account: The CESA is an IRA account that features tax-free withdrawals for a child's higher education expenses. Unlike the Traditional IRA, contributions are nondeductible. Therefore distributions from a CESA could be penalty free and tax-free. Consult your tax advisor for further information.
IRA Certificates: Earn higher dividends with an IRA Certificate. IRA Certificates are available with a minimum deposit of $1,000.00 in terms ranging from 6 months to 36 months. IRA Certificates are subject to Federal IRA regulations.
