An IRA can help you get there. An Individual Retirement Account is a specialized product used to save for retirement. Additionally, they may have higher return rates compared to a typical savings account. So you can look to DFCU for all your retirement needs!

Traditional IRA

Traditional IRA

Contributions to a Traditional IRA may be fully or partially tax deductible*. Your deductible contributions and account earnings are not taxed until you make withdrawals in your retirement*.
ROTH IRA

Roth IRA

Roth IRAs are similar to Traditional IRAs, but contributions are not tax deductible. Because you pay taxes on the money you put into a Roth IRA, you do not pay taxes when it’s time to withdraw at retirement age*. Earnings on your Roth IRA may also be tax free*.
