Benefits for Today and Tomorrow
Opening a Traditional Money Fund IRA is a great way to save for retirement — and to gain tax advantages today. Anyone with earned income can open and make contributions to a Traditional Money Fund IRA. Contributions may be tax deductible on both state and federal tax returns for the year in which you make the contribution. Contributions to your Traditional Money Fund IRA may lower your taxable income in the contribution year, which may help you qualify for other tax incentives.
Note: Deposits to an IRA are limited by Federal Regulations. Consult your tax advisor regarding your personal tax situation. Check the current contribution limits in place each year you contribute to your Traditional Money Fund IRA.
You can open a Traditional 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 Traditional 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 Traditional IRA, when you turn 72, you must begin taking required minimum distributions (RDMs)(Note: Until the end of 2019, 70½ was the age when minimum distributions were required to start). These withdrawals are taxed at ordinary income tax rates at the time of withdrawal. Early withdrawals are subject to penalty. Up to $10,000 may be withdrawn without the normal early withdrawal penalty to pay for qualified first-time home buyer or college expenses. At age 59 1/2, additional qualified early distributions may be allowed.
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.
