Retirement Savings Options

Individual Retirement Savings Accounts

Designed to help you accumulate the nest egg you need for your golden years - or - to manage your retirement rollover account.

A Traditional IRA is an account that allows you to defer taxes on your earnings until they are withdrawn. Certain contributions are tax deductible in the tax year they are made. Deductibility of your contribution is based on IRS guidelines. All earnings on your traditional IRA remain tax deferred until you make withdrawals, which are taxed as income during the tax year of their withdrawal.

The Roth IRA is a non-deductible account that features tax-free withdrawals for certain distribution reasons after five years. To qualify for a ROTH IRA, you must have earned income (or your spouse must have earned income). You may contribute any amount up to 100% of your compensation or $6,000 (whichever is less), as long as your Modified Adjusted Gross Income is within the limits established by the government.
