The Accumulator Account establishes your IRA account at Intrepid Credit Union. This account is a simple way for members to accumulate funds for Traditional IRAs, Roth IRAs, SEP IRAs, or Coverdell ESAs. The minimum balance to open is $25, a minimum balance of $500 is required to avoid the annual fee of $10. Dividends are compounded daily and paid monthly based on balance tiers.
The IRA Certificate Account features a higher rate on a fixed term for Traditional IRA, Roth IRA, SEP IRA, or Coverdell ESA funds. You must have an IRA Accumulator to qualify for certificates. Terms range from 12 months to 36 months. Dividends are calculated daily, paid quarterly bases on a tiered structure. An early withdrawal penalty is based on the certificate term.
There are advantages to both Traditional and Roth IRAs. One of the biggest differences is the time at which you see the most advantage. A Traditional IRA provides potential tax relief today, while a Roth IRA has the potential for the most tax benefit at time of retirement.
