Traditional IRAs

A Traditional IRA offers the advantage of tax-deductible contributions now, building earnings until you need them, and deferring taxes on your earnings until they are withdrawn.*


Don't Cash It Out - Roll It Over!

If you leave your job or retire and you have earned benefits in a qualified retirement plan, you can keep the tax-deferred status of the funds by rolling them over directly into a Traditional IRA! Through direct rollover, you postpone paying taxes and avoid the mandatory 20% federal income tax withholding.*

*Not intended as tax advice. Please consult a tax professional.


Roth IRAs

A Roth IRA offers flexibility by allowing you to pay taxes now and reap the benefits in the future. Within qualifying limits, Roth IRA contributions and earnings may be withdrawn tax-free.* You do not have to take mandatory distributions at age 70.

*Please consult your tax advisor about your particular situation.


Coverdell Education Savings Account

The Coverdell Education Savings Account (formerly known as the Education IRA) is a savings account that will help pay for your child's education. You can contribute up to $2,000 per year to help pay for your child or grandchild's qualified educational expenses, tax-free.*

*Please consult your tax advisor about your particular situation.
