Why would I open a High-Growth IRA?

Here are a few more reasons why our members choose to open IRAs (and transfer funds from other banks and credit unions to an Advantis High-Growth IRA):

  • Maximize your retirement savings with competitive, high-growth interest rates
  • Choose the way you prefer to save with an IRA Savings account, IRA Certificate of Deposit, or a combination of both
  • Grow your earnings, tax-deferred, until withdrawn
  • Get potential tax deductions on your Traditional IRA contributions
  • Enjoy potential tax-free distributions from your Roth IRA after retirement
  • Keep your funds safe and sound in a federally insured IRA
  • Your account is FREE – no monthly fees, ever
  • Transfer or rollover funds from another qualifying plan to an Advantis IRA

Enjoy peace of mind knowing your funds are federally insured by the NCUA, the FDIC’s government counterpart insuring not-for-profit credit unions.

Choose from Traditional, Roth, and Education IRAs

Based on your goals and contributions, we’ll help you choose the right solution(s) for your High-Growth IRA Savings. Advantis offers a Traditional IRA, Roth IRA, and Education IRA (also called a Coverdell ESA). You might find yourself funding more than one!

You can also transfer or rollover your IRA from another institution to secure more of your retirement savings at high-growth savings rates.

Reduce your exposure to market volatility.By shifting market investments into High-Growth Savings programs, you can reduce your risk exposures and better protect your hard-earned nest egg.

Many members approaching or enjoying retirement move other IRA, 401(k), and Solo(k) funds into our High-Growth IRA Savings. This proves a satisfying choice when concern over significant market losses becomes a risk too big to bear.

Other members appreciate this option when changing jobs or in response to change in family/marital status.

We recommend you consult with a Certified Professional Accountant (CPA) to help you decide if a rollover or a transfer is the better option for you. Once you’ve made your decision, we make it simple and easy to open (or boost) your High-Growth IRA Savings.

Save for retirement, and defer your taxes. Traditional IRA earnings grow tax-deferred until you begin to withdraw them. But, your Traditional IRA contributions are tax deductible every year that you invest the maximum allowed by law. Tax deferment can be valuable if you expect to pay significantly lower taxes after you retire (and begin drawing on your funds).

You’re qualified to open and contribute to a Traditional IRA for your High-Growth IRA Savings if you receive any taxable compensation during the calendar year, and you’re not yet 70 ½ years of age at the end of that same calendar year.

Enjoy financial flexibility and tax-free income in your retirement. When you use a Roth IRA as the vehicle for you High-Growth IRA Savings, you may be able to withdraw regular contributions tax-free, without penalty at any time.** Roth IRA earnings are tax-deferred: You pay no taxes on your withdrawals if your account has been open for five tax years and if you’re withdrawing for a qualified reason.

The Roth IRA is often recommended for entry-level and mid-level professionals who still qualify for a lower tax bracket. At retirement, many investors move their Traditional or other IRA products to a Roth IRA to maximize savings.

Invest in education the smart way. Education IRAs (also known as Coverdell ESAs) are an empowering way to save for elementary, secondary, and college education expenses like tuition and fees, books and supplies, uniforms, and in some cases, room and board.

Unlike a 529 plan, parents, guardians, and students can use Education IRA earnings to cover costs at most public, private, and parochial schools. If you choose to open a High-Growth IRA Savings and pair it with an Education IRA, you can make non-tax-deductible contributions and invest cash for future and, potentially, tax-free education-related withdrawals.*
