Our flexible IRA accounts can be catered to help you save for retirement while meeting your financial needs today. Even if you already have a 401(k), an IRA may be a valuable way to supplement an employer-sponsored retirement plan. SCE FCU IRAs are held as IRA Certificates with varying terms from 12 to 60 months, so you can create a savings strategy that maximizes your earnings.
- Terms from 12 to 60 months
- $1,000 minimum opening balance
- Dividends compound monthly
- No fees to maintain your account
- Even if you withdraw your money early, the principal is protected
- Federally insured up to at least $250,000
IRA contributions may be tax deductible, depending on your circumstances. Many people pay fewer taxes on these earnings because they move to a lower tax bracket after retirement.
This IRA has the same contribution limits as a traditional IRA, but you don’t need to be under 70½ years old to contribute. The contributions are not tax-deductible during the current tax year, but the earnings on your contributions are tax-deferred and may be tax-free if you wait to withdraw funds until you’ve had your Roth IRA for at least five years and you reach the age of 59½, become disabled, or qualify as a first-time homebuyer.
Coverdell Educational Savings Accounts (ESA)
Formerly called an Education IRA, the Coverdell ESA helps pay for a child’s education. When used to pay for qualified education expenses, the earnings on your contributions are tax-free.
With no minimum balance requirement, this account allows you to start saving for retirement now and still have access to the funds.
