While Roth IRAs provide no tax break on contributions, earnings can be withdrawn tax-free when needed in retirement. And, because you are not required to withdraw funds at any age, your Roth IRA can continue to grow over many years. The Roth IRA does have income restrictions and contribution limits. Before you open a Roth IRA, check that you qualify.
Note: Deposits to an IRA are limited by Federal Regulations. Consult your tax advisor regarding your personal tax situation. For the latest information on Roth IRA income restrictions and contribution rules, call our Member Service Center at 210-258-1234 or toll free at 800-688-7228.
You can open a Roth Money Fund IRA with no minimum opening deposit and no balance requirement. Earn higher dividends as your balance grows. Account holders must have earned income or alimony in order to open and make annual contributions to a Roth Money Fund IRA.
Note: Tiered dividends are paid quarterly on any balances. Dividends are calculated using the daily balance method. Your balance tier determines the daily dividend rate and annual percentage yield on the daily account balance. The rate is variable, and may change at any time after the account is opened. Fees could reduce earnings.
Options for Withdrawal
With a Roth IRA, contributions (but not earnings) can be withdrawn penalty- and tax-free at any time, even before age 59 1/2. Five tax years after the first contribution, you can withdraw up to $10,000 of your earnings penalty-free to pay for qualified first-time home buyer expenses. And if you are five years past your first contribution and over age 59 1/2, you can make any withdrawal tax-free. Finally, no withdrawals are required during the account holder’s lifetime. This means that if you do not need the money, you can allow it to continue to grow well over the required distribution age of 72 required by a Traditional IRA.
Note: Substantial penalties for early withdrawal will apply except for those specifically permitted under IRS Regulations. If you wish to make a withdrawal, check to determine whether you may do so penalty-free, or if you will face an early withdrawal penalty.
