Traditional IRA

Individual retirement accounts are a smart way to save for the future. A traditional IRA can be open and funded without any employer participation. Contributions and/or earnings are tax deferred until retirement. Unlike many employer plans, the money in your IRA account is always accessible. However, there is a 10% early distribution penalty by the IRS (before age 59½) unless you qualify for an exemption due to one of the following: disability, qualifying education expenses, unemployment, qualifying first-time home purchases, death or receipt of your IRA assets in equal payments over your life expectancy.

Metro Medical Credit Union offers a share savings IRA account that earns quarterly interest. The minimum deposit for an IRA savings account is $25. IRA Certificates (CDs) are also available for terms ranging from one year to five years. Minimum opening deposits for IRA CDs are $1,000.00. IRA accounts are insured up to $250,000.00 separately from any other deposits you may have at the credit union.

Roth IRA

Roth IRAs differ from traditional IRAs in that the money you contribute to a Roth IRA has already been taxed. Earnings are tax-free if account is open for five years and withdrawn for a qualified reason (age 59½, disability, death or a first-time home purchase.) This retirement plan allows the money you contribute to grow tax-deferred.
