IRA / Education Plans

A comfortable retirement is a part of the American Dream and an IRA is one of the best ways to help make that dream come true. People are retiring earlier and living longer. Withdrawals from an IRA can be an important supplement to other retirement income such as pension payments and social security checks.

Traditional IRA

  • Contributions may be tax-deductible
  • Earnings grow tax-deferred
  • Can be used to receive a direct rollover from your employer plan
  • Variable and fixed rate accounts available

You may want to consider a Traditional IRA if:

  • You are looking for a tax deduction
  • You anticipate being in a lower tax bracket in retirement

Roth IRA

  • Contributions are non-deductible
  • Earning on qualified distributions are tax-free
  • No required distributions at age 70 1/2

You may want to consider a Roth IRA if:

  • You do not qualify for a deduction on the Traditional IRA
