Bolster Your Retirement Efforts in 2019

If you’re like us, New Year’s Day is a kind of reset. The rush of the holidays is over, and we settle back into a recognizable rhythm. We also have a tendency to take a look at things we want to begin, improve, or change.

Maybe one of your resolutions is to be more proactive about your retirement planning – whether to begin or enhance your plans. And because you know that right now is always a great time to start saving toward any goal.

Let’s take a look at one of the easiest and safest savings tools available to help you meet your financial goals: Individual Retirement Accounts, commonly known as IRAs. Specifically, we’ll look at the types of IRAs you can open just by walking into your local Avadian branch.

 

Benefits

An IRA can offer a significant tax benefit: contributions to, and withdrawals from, your account may be tax-free or tax-deferred, depending on the type of account you own and your age.

An added benefit of Avadian holding your IRA is that your IRA is covered for up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Association (NCUA). No insured savings have ever been lost by members of a NCUA member credit union, and Avadian is one of just a few credit unions in the state to offer additional insurance of up to $250,000 through Excess Share Insurance, giving you even more protection.
