IRAs

We offer three different kinds of Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs):

Traditional IRA

A Traditional IRA offers significant up-front tax advantages, and less money is taken out for taxes. They also benefit from the growth of compounded earnings. Some of the features of Traditional IRAs are:

  • Earnings accumulate tax-deferred
  • Competitive rates
  • Contributions are tax deductible (if you qualify)
  • Contribution amount increases
  • No set-up or administration fee
  • Federally insured up to $250,000

For more information about traditional IRAs, including contribution limits and deadlines, please call us or visit one of our branches. You may also visit the IRA Contribution Limits page on the irs.gov website.

Roth IRA

Unlike traditional IRAs, contributions to a Roth IRA are never tax-deductible. However, the money in your Roth IRA can be withdrawn tax-free, including earnings. Some of the features of a Roth IRA are:

  • Contributions are allowed at any age
  • Qualified distributions are tax-free
  • Flexible withdrawal options are available
  • Contribution amount increases
  • No set-up or administration fee
  • Federally insured up to $250,000

Coverdell Education Savings Account

Also known as a Coverdell Education Savings Account, an Educational IRA is an ideal way to begin savings to help a child, grandchild, or any young person pay for educational expenses—such as tuition, fees, books, supplies and equipment.

  • Anyone meeting the income requirements can open and contribute to a child’s account, including grandparents, aunts, uncles, and family friends.
  • Earnings grow tax-free if distributions are used for qualified education expenses
  • Competitive rates
  • Can be used for qualified elementary and high school expenses at most public, private and parochial schools
  • You can save up to $2,000 per child per year
  • Federally insured up to $250,000

Unitus also offers scholarships

It’s closer than you think.

Health Savings Accounts

If you have a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP), then a Health Savings Account (HSA) is the perfect complement. The money you (and possibly your employer) contribute to your HSA can be used tax-free for qualifying medical expenses not covered by your HDHP, including the deductible. It also helps you save for future medical expenses not covered by Medicaid after you retire.

For the most current information on annual HSA contribution limits for those with individual and family HDHPs, please visit the IRS website.

 

Some of the benefits of a Unitus HSA are:

  • Competitive rates
  • An HSA debit card that makes it simple to use
  • HSA funds do not expire; they grow tax-free through dividend earnings, like an IRA.
  • The money in your HSA is yours, and you alone decide how to use it.***
  • Your contributions can usually be deducted from your taxable income (check with your tax advisor)
  • Automatic payroll deductions can help you fund your HSA
