Individual Retirement Accounts

Traditional and Roth Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are an excellent way to save for retirement.

Dividends earned on Traditional IRAs are tax-deferred until they are withdrawn. You can withdraw funds after the age of 59 1/2 without penalty. However, you must start a minimum distribution of funds in the year in which you turn 70 1/2.

Dividends earned on Roth IRAs are tax-deferred and withdrawals are tax free if an IRA account has been established for at least five tax years and withdrawals are for a qualified reason.

IRA Certificates are available directly from LBS Financial Credit Union and offer a guaranteed rate over a period of time—plus they are insured by the NCUSIF.
