IRA Certificates

Traditional and Roth IRA

Similar to Share Certificates, IRA Certificates feature terms from 3 months to five years. Featuring a higher dividend rate than the IRA savings accounts, you can choose your term, deposit your money, and not think about it again until maturity!

We offer both Traditional and Roth IRA Certificates.

Traditional IRA Certificate

  • Contributions are tax deductible depending on your income level
  • Withdrawals begin at age 59 ½ and are mandatory by the age of 70 ½
  • The Traditional IRA is available to anyone; there are no income restrictions
  • All funds withdrawn (including principal contributions) before 59 ½ are subject to a 10% penalty

Roth IRA Certificate

  • Contributions are not tax deductible
  • No Mandatory Distribution Age
  • All earnings and principal are 100% tax free if rules and regulations are followed
  • Available only to single-filers making up to $95,000 or married couples making a combined maximum of $150,000 annually.
  • Principal contributions can be withdrawn any time without penalty (subject to some minimal conditions).

Contribution Limits

For 2014 and 2015, the maximum you can contribute to all of your traditional and Roth IRAs cannot be more than:

  • your taxable compensation for the year if your compensation was less than this dollar amount
