Money Market & Retirement

Investment Account

Investment Accounts are a great way to save and gain dividends on a higher balance account. Earn more APY than a Savings or Money Market Account. The minimum balance for the Investment Account starts at $10,000. The dividends are paid monthly on the daily balance.

  • Earn a higher APY than a Savings or Money Market Account
  • No monthly fee with a minimum balance of $10,000
  • Free online & mobile banking
  • No more than 6 transactions per month

Share Certificate

Share Certificates are available with terms ranging from 6 months to 5 years. When you purchase a Certificate, the Dividend Rate and Annual Percentage Yield are fixed and will be in effect until Certificate reaches maturity. Dividends can be compounded, transferred to your Citizens FCU account, or paid directly to you by check (available only on Mini-Jumbo or Jumbo Certificates). Our Share Certificates offer competitive dividend rates.

After the account is opened, you may not make deposits into the account until the maturity date stated on the Certificate. We impose a penalty if you withdraw any of the principal before the maturity date.


Share Account

The Share Account has a minimum balance of $5. The balance must be a minimum of $50 to earn dividends. Dividends are paid quarterly.

  • Free online & mobile banking
  • No more than 8 withdrawals per month

Health Savings Account

Protection

You will have an opportunity to save money to pay high or unexpected medical bills.

Affordability

High health insurance policy deductibles mean lower premiums.

Savings

Your ability to deduct your contributions and the tax deferral of account earnings enable you to build your account.

Flexibility

You can contribute at any time during the year, and your HSA balance rolls over from year to year.

Portability

You own the account, so it goes where you go, regardless of any job changes.

Who can contribute?

Roth IRA

You are eligible if you earn compensation and your MAGI* is less than the defined limits set by Congress. If your MAGI is too high to contribute the annual contribution limit, you may be able to make a smaller contribution.

Traditional IRA

Anyone under age 70 ½ who has income from compensation (or who is filing jointly with a spouse who earns compensation).

Anyone who has received a distribution from a qualified retirement plan and decides to move the proceeds of the plan into an IRA.


What are the tax advantages?

Roth IRA

  • Earnings are tax-deferred and withdrawals are tax-free if the account is open for five tax years and withdrawals are for a qualified reason (age 59 ½, disability, death, or a first-time home purchase**).
  • Not required to start withdrawals at age 70 ½.

 

Traditional IRA

  • Earnings grow tax-deferred until withdrawn.
  • Contributions may be tax-deductible.

 


When can I withdraw without restrictions?

  • Regular contributions can be withdrawn tax-free and penalty-free at any time.
  • After the account has been open five tax years, earnings can be withdrawn tax-free and penalty-free for any of these reasons: age 59 ½, disability, death, or a first-time home purchase.**
