Secure Your Future with an Individual Retirement Account
Is an IRA Right For You? Take our Fidelity Savings IRA Test and find out. At Fidelity Savings, we offer several IRA plans, which are highlighted below. You have a choice of several IRA CDs and IRA Savings Accounts with an initial opening deposit of $250 giving you a choice of investment options for a sound financial retirement. These IRA investment options allow you to accumulate retirement funds, and an IRA deposit at Fidelity Savings is the best way to save for your retirement. They are FDIC Insured!
Traditional IRAs are easy to maintain, and may be your choice for a better retirement. These IRAs typically offer two important tax advantages. You may be eligible to deduct your total annual Traditional IRA contribution on your federal income tax return; and every penny of the earnings in your Traditional IRA grows faster because your earnings grow 100% federal income tax deferred until you withdraw funds from your IRA account.
Traditional IRAs are designed to provide retirement income. Therefore, if you have a Traditional IRA, you are required to take an annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) once you reach age 70 1/2.
Roth IRAs are not tax deductible, but if the funds are distributed in a “qualified distribution”, they are not subject to federal income tax. Therefore, the earnings on the Roth IRA are generally tax-free. These “tax free” earnings make the Roth IRA the most exciting retirement savings option since IRAs were first permitted in 1975.
In summary, you might also be able to save on your present taxes with an Individual Retirement Account, by deducting your qualified contributions from your taxable income. Many Americans can deduct all or part of their IRA contributions from current income taxes. The deductible amount depends on your income, marital status and whether you’re an active participant in an employer sponsored plan as defined by the Internal Revenue Service.
With an Individual Retirement Account, you may also be able to defer taxes until you retire, when you may be in a lower tax bracket. You may want to consult your tax advisor to review the tax deductible status of an IRA. Regardless of the amount you’ll be able to save now on taxes, an IRA is a smart way for you to save for a secure retirement.
Now with increased annual contributions limits and special catch up provisions for account holders age 50+, you can enhance your retirement nest egg quicker.
If You’re Changing Employers, An IRA Direct Rollover makes sense. If you are retiring or changing jobs and anticipate withdrawing money from your employer’s retirement plan, you can avoid withdrawal penalties by transferring your assets into an IRA or another qualified plan. A Direct Rollover, of your pension or retirement plan(such as a 401k), waived the 20% IRS penalty. When you choose to rollover the funds yourself, the rollover must be completed within 60 days from the date you receive the assets from your old IRA in order to qualify and not pay the mandatory 20% withholding and possibly other penalties, as well.

Plans for Employers
Simplified Employee Pension Plan (SEP) is a flexible retirement plan set up by a business owner/employer. The business owner may be a sole-proprietor, a partnership, or a corporation. These plans are popular with smaller businesses, because they are inexpensive and easy to establish and manage. There are no annual contribution requirements, no IRS reporting requirements, and have tax deductible contributions and tax-deferred earnings. A SEP can be established by a business owner even if he/she is the only employee. Now business owners are able to contribute more, and that means more retirement savings and tax benefits!
Employers should consult with their counsel or tax advisor.
Coverdale Education Savings Plans (ESA) can be a valuable savings tool for a child’s education. These flexible accounts can be used in many ways. Whether you want to save for college, pay tuition at a private high school, or provide for an after-school reading tutor, an ESA could help you provide for your child’s or grandchild’s education.
Invest in the future of your children or grandchildren with tax-advantaged savings for education , while they are less than 18 years of age!
