Yes, the Credit Union offers both Traditional IRA and Roth IRA accounts.
Yes, you can. The maximum contribution for the year is accumulative. As an example, in 2019 you can contribute $3,000 to a Traditional IRA and $3,000 to a Roth IRA, and this would take you to your annual contribution amount.
For 2018, the contribution limit for both is $5,500 per year or a cumulative total of $5,500 between both a Traditional IRA and Roth IRA per year. For 2019, the contribution limit for both is $6,000 per year or a cumulative total of $6,000 between both a Traditional IRA and Roth IRA per year. If you are 50 years old or older, you are able to contribute an additional $1,000 as a ‘catch up’ contribution.
Contributions to a Traditional IRA are pre-tax dollars and could offer tax deductibility and contributions to a Roth IRA are after tax dollars and could offer tax free withdrawals.
