IRA CERTIFICATES FAQs

  • An IRA Certificate allows your savings to grow tax-deferred. You don’t pay taxes on the interest earned until you withdraw the funds in retirement. This feature can boost your returns compared to other taxable savings accounts. Consult with your tax advisor for personalized advice.

  • You can contribute earned income up to the annual IRA limits set by the IRS. Income limits only affect whether contributions are tax-deductible. Check with your financial advisor regarding deductibility.

  • IRA Certificates can offer higher returns than savings accounts. They also have less risk than mutual funds. Consider your risk tolerance and time horizon when choosing investments.

  • Annual Percentage Yields show the annual return earned on an IRA account. IRA Certificates tend to offer higher APYs than other types of savings accounts like money markets or CDs. A higher APY potentially allows your retirement savings to grow faster.
