Traditional IRA

No IRA setup fees, no IRA administration fees, no annual IRA account maintenance fees.

Traditional IRA

  • No IRA setup, administration or annual maintenance fees
  • Convenience of payroll allocations and automated deposits
  • Automatic IRA distributions available
  • 10-business-day grace period and automatic renewal on Certificate Accounts
  • Competitive IRA interest rates
  • Knowledgeable, qualified staff

If you and (if married filing a joint tax return) your spouse are not an "active participant" in an employer-sponsored retirement plan, such as a 401(k), your contributions are fully tax-deductible! Otherwise, phase-out rules apply.

Investments grow on a tax-deferred basis. Earnings are taxed only upon withdrawal. We offer Contributory, Rollover, Conduit, and Spousal plans. Untaxed Traditional IRA assets are now generally permitted to be rolled over into a qualified retirement plan (employer plan).

Traditional IRA Tax Deduction

Contributions up to the limit are fully tax-deductible if you are not an active participant in an employer-sponsored retirement plan.

If you are an active participant and a single tax filer, your deductibility phase-out range for tax year 2020 is $65,000 - $75,000, up from $64,000 to $74,000 in 2019.

If you are married and filing a joint return, your deductibility phase-out range for tax year 2020 is $104,000 - $124,000, up from $103,000 to $123,000 in 2019.

Note: For an IRA contributor who is not an active participant and is married to someone who is an active participant, the deductibility phase-out range is $196,000 - $206,000 for 2020 and $193,000 - $203,000 for 2019.

Traditional and Roth IRAs are separately insured to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration, an agency of the United States Government. Coverdell Education Savings Accounts are insured under the same provisions as irrevocable trust accounts.
