Individual Retirement Accounts

YOUR ROAD TO RETIREMENT BEGINS WITH MEMBERS FIRST.

When you’re a part of the Members First family, we work with you to make sure you have the funds you need to retire and enjoy your senior years with peace of mind. One important part of reaching that goal is putting aside money in an Individual Retirement Account (IRA).

There is no minimum balance to open an IRA account, and we offer competitive rates on the 12- and 24-month fixed rate options. Interest is compounded monthly and credited to your account at the end of each month. Your IRA will be automatically renewed every 12 and 24 months at the current rate until maturity*.

Each of these IRAs has unique features, guidelines and tax implications. We recommend that you talk with your tax advisor or Rodney Rich & Company to learn more about these options and to decide which one is best for you and your family.

TRADITIONAL IRA

  • Account can be opened without any employer participation until age 70 ½
  • Contributions are tax-deductible
  • Interest earned will be tax-deferred — you won’t need to pay those taxes until you withdraw funds
  • Early withdrawal before age 59 ½ may result in a penalty
  • Required to start taking equal payments at age 70 ½

ROTH IRA

  • Not tax-deductible — taxes already taken out of the principal amount when it is contributed
  • Withdraw funds from principal contributions at any time, tax-free
  • Earned interest is not tax-free until age of 59 ½
  • No limit on how long you can contribute to your Roth IRA
  • Not required to take payments at age 70 ½

COVERDELL IRA

  • Account can be opened for any child under the age of 18
  • Contributions can be made by anyone in the child’s life, such as parents or grandparents
  • A collective total from all contributors can be up to $2,000.00 each year until the child turns 18
  • Funds can be withdrawn after the child turns 18
  • All funds must be withdrawn by his or her 30th birthday to avoid penalties

*At maturity, there is a 10-day grace period to withdraw funds without being charged a Credit Union penalty. If an early withdrawal is necessary, the Credit Union penalty is 90 days worth of interest on the amount withdrawn.
