Annual investment accounts with tax advantages that you can contribute to each year. IRAs can supplement your 401(k) or social security for retirement
In order to open an IRA, you must first become a member of the MTEFCU by opening a primary savings account.
Our IRAs have no minimum balance to open! We offer three types of IRAs to meet your needs: Traditional, Roth, and Coverdell.
Traditional IRAs offer tax-deferred earnings, and the possibility for tax deductible contributions. You can contribute to a traditional IRA if you earn compensation and you will not reach age 70 1/2 by the end of the year.
Roth IRAs offer unique and exciting savings opportunities. Contributions are from after tax earnings. Not only can it help with retirement needs, but it can also help with first-time home purchases or other financial goals. This flexibility makes the Roth IRA appealing to many different age and income groups. Although it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution, the Roth IRA will give many members an easy and safe way to plan for the future.
Coverdell Education Savings Account IRAs are special accounts with the sole purpose of paying education expenses of the child named on the account (the designated beneficiary). Earnings will accumulate tax free and withdrawals will be tax-free if used for education expenses for the designated beneficiary by the time he or she reaches age 30.
