Traditional IRA's

Anyone who is under age 70 1/2 and has earned income can contribute to a Traditional IRA. Contributions may be tax-deductible, and taxes on earnings are deferred until you withdraw funds from the account, thus giving your investments the opportunity to compound faster.  After the age of 70 1/2, account holders are required to begin to withdraw money from their account.  In 2002, the RMD formula changed, please talk to one of our employees to see how this might affect you.
