IRA Accounts

Coast-Tel IRA Accounts

An individual retirement account (IRA) is a type of retirement plan that has been in existence since 1975. IRAs offer tax-deferred earnings and the possibility of having tax-deductible contributions. These tax advantages make the IRA a powerful tool in creating a balanced, long term savings plan.

You can open an IRA account at Coast-Tel with either a regular savings account, a share certificate account or a combination of the two!

Traditional IRA: Anyone may contribute to a traditional IRA if they have earned compensation and will not reach age 70-1/2 in the tax year of the contribution. Earnings (dividends) accrued in a traditional IRA are not taxed until they are withdrawn. The ability to defer taxes on the earnings and to withdraw in a year when you may be in a lower tax bracket may mean more after-tax dollars for your retirement. The annual contribution limits for a traditional IRA are illustrated in the tables below. Please consult a tax advisor to determine your maximum contribution limit. The following are general limits and may be reduced depending on your modified adjusted gross income.
