An individual retirement annuity (IRA) is a wise complement to your retirement plan

What are IRAs?

An IRA helps you accumulate retirement savings while you work, and then provides an income after you retire. Catholic United offers both traditional and Roth IRAs, which have different tax advantages.

Benefits of contributing to an IRA

  • Guaranteed minimum rate of return
  • Protection from stock market risk
  • Automated payments save you time and money
  • No upfront service charges, annual fees, or surrender charges after 5 years
  • “Catch-up” contributions for those age 50 or over are possible, up to $1,000 per year
  • Rollover contributions at any age are allowed

Your Catholic United Member Advisor can explain the advantages of IRAs, and which type will best fit with your financial situation and goals.

What types of IRAs are available?

Roth IRA

A Roth Individual Retirement Annuity (IRA) is a retirement savings tool that accumulates money on an after-tax basis. Since the funds have already been taxed, qualified withdrawals made later can be made income tax-free. See your tax advisor for advice about your specific situation and income restrictions.

  • Qualified withdrawals are not taxed
  • Automated payments save you time and money

Traditional IRA

A traditional Individual Retirement Annuity (IRA) is a retirement savings tool that defers the taxes on the growth of your account value until you withdraw the funds. In addition, your contributions may be tax deductible, but consult with a tax advisor for details about your specific situation.

  • Tax-deferred savings through age 70 1/2
  • Automated payments save you time and money
  • Contributions may be tax deductible
