IRAs

What’s the outlook for your golden years? Whether you want to build a comfortable nest egg or fund something more immediate, we offer IRAs that make it easy to build your savings.

Highlights of Green Bank Individual Retirement Accounts:

  • Terms ranging from 6 months to 5 years
  • Contribution may be tax deductible 
  • All earnings are tax deferred until a distribution is taken 
  • You have until April 15th of each year to open and fund a Traditional IRA for the prior tax year
  • Minimum of $100.00 to open
  • Since 2008, the limit you may contribute to a regular IRA has been $5,000. However, if you will be 50 or older by the end of the year, you can contribute an extra $1,000, for a $6,000 total contribution limit. 

Traditional/Rollover IRA:

These IRA contributions are generally tax deductible, creating an opportunity for you to save for your future. You also benefit today, by saving on taxes that you might otherwise pay. Plus, your earnings grow tax deferred.

The eligibility requirements for a Traditional IRA are:

  • The individual must be under the age of 70½ 
  • The individual must have earned compensation 

Roth IRA:

The Roth IRA can help first-time home buyers save for a down payment. Contributions to a Roth IRA are not tax deductible, but withdrawals are generally tax free, if:

  • You don't begin withdrawals until at least five years after you establish the IRA, and 
  • You are at least age 59½, or use the funds for a first-time home purchase. (Withdrawals for this purpose are limited to a lifetime cap of $10,000). 
  • Withdrawals made prior to age 59½ may be subject to a 10% IRS early withdrawal penalty in addition to ordinary income taxes. The IRS 10% penalty does not apply if the equal periodic payments are taken over life expectancy, for at least five years, or upon attainment of age 59½, whichever is later, if the withdrawal is used for a first-time home purchase (lifetime of $10,000 per individual), qualified higher education expenses, certain medical expenses and certain other uses, or in the event of disability or death.

For further information on tax deductions, consult your tax accountant.
