Individual Retirement Accounts

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) provide an excellent way to save for the future.

Your earnings are sheltered from taxes—allowing your money to grow faster than funds in an ordinary savings account.

At ETFCU, you’ll find all the features you’re looking for in an IRA:

  • You’ll enjoy great rates on your account.
  • ETFCU IRAs feature no set-up or annual fees.

ETFCU offers three types of IRAs:

Traditional IRA

An individual retirement account (IRA) that allows individuals to pretax income, up to specific annual limits, toward investments that can grow tax-deferred. Individual taxpayers are allowed to contribute 100% of compensation up to a maximum dollar amount to their Traditional IRA. Contributions to the Traditional IRA may be tax-deductible depending on the taxpayer’s income, tax-filing status, and other factors.

Roth IRA

An individual retirement plan that bears many similarities to the Traditional IRA, but contributions are not tax deductible and qualified distributions are tax free. Similar to other retirement plan accounts, non-qualified distributions from a Roth IRA may be subject to a penalty upon withdrawal.

Coverdell Education Savings Account

Formerly called an education IRA, the Coverdell Education Savings Account is a tax-deferred account created by the U.S. Government to assist families in funding educational expenses for beneficiaries under the age of 18.

Contact any ETFCU office for more information. Additional investment options are available through ETFCU Financial Group at ETFCU.

IRA Contribution Limits

Qualifying IRA owners may contribute up to $5,500 to a Traditional or Roth IRA for tax year 2017, and IRA owners age 50 or older can contribute an additional $1,000. (2016 contributions limits were $5,500 for both Traditional and Roth IRAs.  The catch-up contribution for those age 50 or older can contribute an additional $1,000.  Contributions for 2016 may be made through April, 17, 2017 tax deadline.)

The contribution limit on Coverdell Education Savings Accounts remain at $2,000 for tax year 2017.
