The traditional IRA is an individual retirement account that allows you to defer taxes on your contribution earnings until they are withdrawn. Certain contributions are also tax-deductible in the tax year for which you make them. Every individual situation is unique, consult with a tax advisor before opening an IRA account.
You may also choose between an IRA Certificate with a specific term, an IRA Share Account or an IRA Investment Money Market Account.
You must be a member of Wings (with a Primary Share Account) prior to opening a Retirement Account. If you are not currently a member, open your account online or download a membership application.
You may contribute any amount up to 100% of your compensation, or the amount specified in the chart below — whichever is less— to a traditional IRA (or in total between a traditional and a Roth IRA). In addition, if you reach age 50 or older by the end of the taxable year, you will be eligible to make catch-up contributions.
