Whether you are starting to save for retirement, receiving a pension plan payout, planning to retire soon, or saving for a child's higher education, a Scenic Community Credit Union IRA can help you reach your goals.

Traditional IRA

With a Traditional IRA, your contributions are tax-deferred (depending on your eligibility), meaning you won't pay taxes on your savings until you withdraw. If you are eligible to take a distribution from your employer-sponsored retirement plan, you may be able to roll it over to a Traditional IRA.

A Traditional IRA may be a good choice if you:

  • are eligible for a Traditional IRA deduction,
  • are not eligible to contribute to a Roth IRA,
  • anticipate a higher tax rate while saving,
  • anticipate a lower tax rate during retirement,
  • are interested in taking required minimum distribution (RMD) amounts during retirement, or
  • are not concerned about tax savings for beneficiaries.

Remember to always consult your tax advisor before opening an IRA.

Roth IRA

With a Roth IRA, contributions are not tax deductible, but qualified distributions are tax-free, if you satisfy the requirements.

A Roth IRA may be a good choice if you:

  • are not eligible for a Traditional IRA deduction,
  • anticipate a lower tax rate while saving,
  • anticipate a higher tax rate during retirement,
  • want to avoid required minimum distributions (RMDs),
  • are concerned about tax savings for beneficiaries, or
  • are not eligible to contribute to a Traditional IRA because of the age limit.
Remember to always consult your tax advisor before opening an IRA.

Coverdell Education IRA

Also known as a Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA), this account can help you save for a child's education expenses, such as tuition, fees, books, supplies, equipment, and in some cases, room and board. With an ESA, you make nondeductible contributions that may provide for tax-free withdrawals, including earnings, down the road.
