IRA savings account and IRA Certificate - the best of both worlds.

There's no minimum balance requirement to open an IRA savings account and begin earning on your retirement savings. You can contribute to your account at any time through Payroll Deduction or by speaking with a loan officer, branch manager, or IRA specialist.

An IRA Certificate gives you the consistent, guaranteed interest of a certificate and the tax advantages of an IRA. Your certificate will automatically renew at maturity at the prevailing rate unless you choose otherwise. There may be penalties for withdrawing funds prior to the maturity date. 

An IRA Certificate offers: 
  • Stability. Stable earnings you can count on no matter the ever-changing investment values.
  • Flexibility. With a low minimum balance requirement, begin earning on your retirement savings on as little as $500.
  • Tax savings. Get the tax advantages of a traditional or Roth IRA.

Sit back and know you're in good hands. 

Aside from working with the top IRA specialists in the area, all GECU IRA funds are federally insured separately, from other deposits up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). For more details about how your GECU accounts are protected, please click here for an informative brochure. Calculate your accurate insurance by using the NCUA e-calculator.
