A traditional IRA is an account that allows you to defer taxes on your earnings until they are withdrawn. Also, certain contributions may be tax deductible in the year they are made.
Retiring or changing jobs? Planning on directly rolling over your qualified pension plan into an IRA? If an IRA is composed entirely of one or more rollovers from a qualified pension plan, it may, at a later date be rolled back into a qualified pension plan. You can do this with our Conduit IRA. At Ticonderoga Federal, you can open a Conduit IRA with a zero balance and we will handle the Direct Rollover request from your employer.
The Roth IRA is an account that features tax-free withdrawals for certain distribution reasons after a five-year holding period. Since Roth IRA contributions are nondeductible and taxed in the year they are earned, members who expect to be in a higher tax bracket when they retire may benefit more from a Roth IRA than from a traditional IRA. Unlike the Traditional IRA, there is no requirement to begin taking distributions at age 70½.
The Educational IRA is an account that features tax-free withdrawals for a child's higher education expenses. Contributions are nondeductible, therefore unlike the Traditional IRA, distributions from an Educational IRA are penalty free and tax-free. Consult your tax advisor for further information.
IRA Share Certificates
Earn higher dividends with an IRA Share Certificate. IRA Share Certificates are available with a minimum deposit of $200.
