Build your retirement with IRAs

An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is an investing tool you can use to set aside funds for the future. Whether you're saving for retirement, a special dream or a loved one's education, Thrivent Federal Credit Union has an IRA to help meet your needs.

The IRA Advantage

There are two types of IRAs – traditional and Roth, each with specific advantages.

Traditional IRA

A traditional IRA allows you to invest in an account up until the year in which you turn 70 1/2, as long as you still have earned income. The key benefit of a traditional IRA is that your contributions may be tax deductible, depending on your income, tax filing status and participation in an employer-sponsored retirement plan.

Roth IRA

A Roth IRA allows you to invest in an account, as long as certain income guidelines and requirements are met. If you're eligible to invest, your contributions are made with after-tax dollars.

Though Roth IRA contributions are not tax-deductible, withdrawals may be tax-free and there are fewer withdrawal restrictions.
