Roth IRA

Regardless of your current employer retirement plans, an IRA can offer additional retirement security for eligible members.  Both Traditional and Roth IRAs are available in a Savings or Certificate option, with MEFCU representatives ready to help explain your options.

Deposits for any tax year may be made until April 15th of the following year, and can be set up through payroll deduction.  As with any MEFCU deposit account, IRA deposits are insured up to $500,000.
