on the unique
tax benefits of an IRA
The Roth IRA
The Roth IRA allows you to invest after-tax dollars now,
receive the growth of tax-deferred earnings, and have the principal
amount tax-free when you take distributions. Plus, your tax-deferred
earnings can become tax-free if the account is open for a minimum
of 5 years and one of the following events occurs: you are age 59
½, purchase a new home, disability, or death.

retirement program. Refer to the Contribution Limits Chart to determine
the amount you may contribute each year. Check with a Personal Banker

Additional Retirement Options
A SIMPLE IRA plan is an IRA-based plan that gives small employers
a simplified method to make contributions toward their employees’
retirement and their own retirement. Under a SIMPLE IRA plan, employees
may choose to make salary reduction contributions and the employer
makes matching or nonelective contributions. All contributions are
made directly to an Individual Retirement Account set up for each
employee. A SIMPLE IRA plan is usually found in companies with less
than 100 employees who want to provide an alternative to a qualified
profit sharing plan.
Employee Pension Plan)
A SEP provides employers with a simplified method to make contributions
toward their employees’ retirement and, if self-employed, their
own retirement. Contributions are made directly to an Individual Retirement
Account set up for each employee. An employer may offer a SEP plan
in conjunction with another defined contribution plan. This plan can
be set up by any type of business, including sole proprietorships,
partnerships or corporations with any number of employees.

An annuity is a contract between you and an insurance company. The insurance
company guarantees that you will earn a minimum rate of interest. The
money that an annuity earns each year is tax-deferred. A deferred annuity
is an investment that can help you achieve your retirement goals. Once
you’ve accumulated the money needed for retirement you have many
options about when and how to receive your income. Annuities offer one
benefit that is not available with any other type of investment—a
payout that you cannot outlive. Annuity payments can be interest only,
or you can annuitize the contract and receive payments for a certain
period of time, for example, 10 or 20 years, for your lifetime or a
combination of time certain with lifetime income. An annuity offers
you many benefits and options.
