Now is the time to save for your future
An IRA is one of the smartest — and most tax-efficient — ways to save for retirement. No matter what stage you're at in life, saving now with an IRA can better prepare you for your future.
At GOLD Credit Union, we offer two types of IRAs: Traditional and Roth. Refer to the details below to choose the plan that's right for you.
- Generally tax-advantaged
- Earn higher yields than with a GOLD Share Savings account
- Contributions accepted until tax year filing date
- IRA rollovers accepted
- Federally insured by the National Credit Union Association up to $250,000
Check with your financial adviser for restrictions on incomes, withdrawals, and age, specific to each account.
A Traditional IRA is potentially tax deductible for most individuals, and your earnings are tax-deferred until you begin taking distributions. You can continue to make contributions as long as you have earned income and you're below the age of 70½. You can invest up to $5,500 per year or, if you're at least 50 years old, up to $6,500 per year.
Learn more via our Traditional IRA brochure.
While the Roth IRA is generally less restrictive than the Traditional IRA. Unlike Traditional IRAs, contributions to a Roth IRA are never tax deductible. However, the money you contribute can be withdrawn tax-free at any time, and, if you qualify, you can withdraw the earnings tax-free as well.

Coverdell Education Savings Accounts
A Coverdell Education Savings Account, or ESA, is designed to help you save for your child's education expenses, including tuition, fees, books, supplies, equipment, and, in some cases, room and board. With an ESA, you make nondeductible contributions that may provide for tax-free withdrawals — including earnings — down the road.
Please refer to our Coverdell brochure for full details.
