Individual Retirement Accounts

Save towards your dreams of a comfortable retirement.

With an IRA, or Individual Retirement Account, from HomeTown Credit Union, we can provide you with the knowledge you need to make the right IRA choices for you.

What is an IRA?

An Individual Retirement Account is an investment account that lets you save money for retirement through yearly contributions while offering tax advantages. They’re also protected and insured up to $250,000 by NCUA.

What IRAs We Offer:

Traditional IRA

Traditional IRAs are taxed at withdrawal, but allow tax deductions on the contributions you make. This type of IRA requires that you begin withdrawing funds at 70 ½ years of age.

Roth IRA

A Roth IRA allows you to enjoy tax-free growth over the years but provides no tax breaks on your contributions. Your contributions are also dependent on the modified adjusted gross income limits. However, Roth’s don’t have withdrawal age requirements.
