How IRAs work
IRAs (Individual Retirement Accounts) allow you to save money at a tax-advantage. They are an essential part of many retirement portfolios, and a popular choice among SIU Credit Union members. A Traditional IRA lets your earnings grow tax-deferred. You pay taxes on your investment gains only when you make withdrawals in retirement. For a Roth IRA, there’s no initial tax benefit. However, your money and your investment earnings grow tax-free, meaning there’s no income tax on Roth IRA withdrawals in retirement. If you’d like additional help picking out the right IRA and deciding how much to contribute, see our FAQs below or reach out to us directly.
