Enjoy the Benefits of an IRA Today and in the Future

Feb 24, 2020


Save for retirement and catch a tax break with an individual retirement account. 

With the start of a new year comes new goals and hopes for the future. At Redwood Credit Union, we want to help you start achieving those goals and working toward a future you love. No matter your stage in life, it’s not too late to start saving for retirement. An individual retirement account, or IRA, is an account that lets you regularly put away funds you’ll use when you retire.

We offer the following account types and services with no monthly fee:

  • Traditional IRAs
  • Roth IRAs
  • SEP IRAs
  • Roth conversions
  • Coverdell ESAs
  • Conduit IRAs
  • Beneficiary IRAs
  • Direct rollovers from a 401k or other qualified retirement plan
  • Direct transfers from an IRA at another financial institution or investment company

Not only will opening and contributing to an IRA now help build your retirement savings, it can also help when tax time rolls around. Contributions to a traditional IRA can be tax deductible in the year they were made.

While IRS rules on contributions vary by situation, you’ll likely be able to deduct at least a portion of your IRA contribution, if not the entire amount. To find out more about deducting an IRA contribution from your taxes, click here

Contact us to discover more about your options. We’re happy to help find the right account for you!
