Traditional Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)

Designed to help you accumulate the nest egg you need for your golden years - or - to manage your retirement rollover account.
  • $500 minimum required
  • No opening fees
  • Annual statements provided

IRA Fees:

  • IRA transfer fee (to another bank) $25
  • IRA withdrawals (3 free per year) $25 for each after 3
  • If IRA is closed less than 90 days of opening a $50 early closeout fee will be assessed

An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) enables you to accumulate the funds you want to retire in the style about which you dream. Certain contributions to IRAs are tax deductible for the year they are made up to the contribution deadline (see table on the right) and are based upon IRS guidelines.** All earnings on your IRA remain tax deferred until you make withdrawals, which are then taxed as income during the tax year of their withdrawal.

There are substantial penalties for early withdrawal. Deposits are insured up to $250,000.

**Consult a Tax Advisor for specific information.
