Individual Retirement Accounts

No required minimum deposit. Dividends are calculated on the average daily balance and paid quarterly

Traditional IRA

You can contribute to a traditional IRA if you earn compensation and you will not reach age 701/2 by the end of the year. Earnings in a traditional IRA are not taxed until they are withdrawn. This type of IRA gives you the ability to defer taxes on the earnings, and to withdraw in a year when you may be in a lower tax bracket.

If you are under age 50, you can contribute up to $5,500 per year. For owners age 50 or older, you may contribute $6,500 per year. Minimum distributions are required at age 70 1/2

You can still contribute to a Traditional IRA even if you participate in an employer-sponsored retirement plan assuming you meet the age and compensation requirements. If neither you nor your spouse is an active participant in a qualified retirement plan, your contribution is deductible regardless of income.

You should contact your Tax Advisor to see how these rules apply to you.

Roth IRA

The Taxpayers Relief Act of 1997 created this new IRA product that allows persons with earned income to save for retirement using non-deductible taxed money. The money in your Roth IRA, including earning, can be withdrawn tax-free.

You may contribute to a Roth IRA if your income is less than a limit set by Congress and you earn compensation or your spouse earns compensation and you file a joint return. The annual contribution limit for members under age 50 is $5,500 and $6,500 if you are age 50 or older. As long as you continue to earn income, you may contribute to a Roth IRA even if you are over 70 1/2.
