Common Questions about Traditional IRAs

View All FAQs

Where can I open an IRA?

Currently, IRAs are only available to open at one of our branch locations.

What is an IRA?

IRAs are Individual Retirement Accounts.

When Social Security and pension plans are not enough to maintain your standard of living at retirement, an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) can be an excellent investment. Both the Roth and traditional IRA offer a number of benefits, depending on your current financial situation.

  • Traditional IRAs allow you to defer taxes on your contributions' earnings until they are withdrawn.
  • Roth IRAs allow only nondeductible contributions and features tax-free withdrawals for certain distribution reasons after a five-year holding period.
  • Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (CESA) are non deductible accounts that feature tax-free withdrawals for a child's education expenses.
What happens to my Traditional IRA if I die?

Your beneficiaries will be notified and funds will be distributed accordingly.

What is a Roth IRA?

The Roth IRA allows only nondeductible contributions and features tax-free withdrawals for certain distribution reasons after a five-year holding period. If you expect to be in a higher tax bracket when you retire, you may benefit more from a Roth IRA, since contributions are nondeductible and taxed in the year they are earned.

You may also choose between an IRA Certificate with a specific term, an IRA Share Account or an 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.
