GLFFCU offers IRA’s (Individual Retirement Accounts). Decide if a Traditional IRA, that may offer tax deductions; or, a Roth IRA, where you can withdraw the earnings tax-free is right for you. See IRA General Information Brochure
The IRS will allow an IRA owner to make only one IRA rollover in any 12-month period, regardless of the number of IRAs owned. Before 2015, an IRA owner was permitted one rollover per 12-month period for each IRA. When consolidating your IRA funds, plan accordingly. The rule does not affect your ability to transfer funds from one IRA trustee directly to another, as this transfer is not considered a rollover. There are no changes on the number of conversions from Traditional to Roth IRAs.
Traditional IRAs are potentially tax-deferred retirement plans, you don’t pay taxes on your contributions until you withdraw the funds. Contributions can be made as long as you have earned income and you’re below the age of 70 ½. See Brochure
