IRAs, Money Markets, & Certificates

IRAs

We all have goals of having a cushy retirement—and it’s never too early, or too late, to start planning for it. TFCU offers Individual Retirement Accounts, or IRAs, that’ll meet your needs and fulfill your retirement goals—whatever they may be.

What we offer

Traditional IRA- Traditional IRAs are taxed at withdrawal, but allow tax deductions on the contributions that you make. Also, this type of IRA requires you to begin withdrawing funds at 70 ½ years of age.

Roth IRA- A Roth IRA allows you to enjoy tax-free growth but provide no tax breaks on your contributions. Your contributions also depend on the modified adjusted gross income limits. [Link to https://www.irs.gov/retirement-plans/amount-of-roth-ira-contributions-that-you-can-make-for-2017] However, a Roth does not require you to withdraw at any age.
