A traditional IRA is a retirement plan that offers tax-deferred earnings, and the possibility for tax-deductible contributions. These tax advantages make the traditional IRA a powerful tool in creating a balanced, long-term savings plan. Be sure to also view our helpful IRA FAQ below.
A traditional IRA brings you significant upfront tax advantages, and with less money taken out for taxes, the power of compound earnings is strengthened. Your earnings are tax-deferred. Over the next several years, the amount you can contribute is increasing and may be tax-deductible if you qualify.
NOTE: NCUA has now increased retirement and Share Account coverage to $250,000.
