Individual Retirement Accounts

Are you interested in opening an IRA? OTIS FCU offers both Traditional and Roth Individual Retirement Accounts.

A Traditional IRA is an individual retirement account that allows you to save for retirement with tax-deferred earnings and the possibility of tax-deductible contributions.

A Roth Individual Retirement Account offers different tax incentives than a Traditional IRA to boost your retirement savings. Unlike Traditional IRAs, contributions to a Roth IRA are never tax-deductible. But the money you contribute to your Roth IRA can be withdrawn tax-free at any time.

Our Member Service Representatives can help you decide whether a Traditional or a Roth IRA may be the right choice for you. Take steps to secure your future today.

Consult with your tax advisor for any tax-related questions.

Traditional IRAs

  • Earnings are tax-deferred until withdrawal.
  • Earnings may be tax-deductible up to $5,500 ($6,500 if age 50 or older).
  • There is no minimum contribution requirement.
  • Penalty-free withdrawals may begin at age 59 1/2.
  • Mandatory withdrawals must be made at age 70 1/2 (minimum distribution age).
  • There is no maximum income limit.
  • You cannot contribute past the age of 70 1/2.

Roth IRAs

  • Earnings are 100% tax-free at withdrawal.
  • You can contribute up to $5,500 per year ($6,500 if you are age 50 or older).
  • Roth IRAS allow you to lock in pre-retirement tax rates. This is ideal for people who think their tax rates in retirement will be higher than their current tax rates.
  • There is no minimum distribution age, so Roth IRAs can be transferred or inherited.
  • Maximum income limit to contribute to a Roth IRA for a single individual is $112,000; maximum income limit for a married couple is $178,000.
  • You can contribute at any age.
