Retire in Style with a Park Community IRA

It’s never too early to start planning for retirement, and Park Community has all the options you need to get started. Just choose from a traditional or Roth IRA and you’re on your way to earning great rates.

Not sure which IRA is right for you? Follow these simple steps.

  1. Choose your IRA – we have both Traditional and Roth IRAs. The simple rule of thumb is that if you expect to be in a lower tax bracket at retirement, choose traditional. If you expect to be in a higher tax bracket at retirement, choose Roth. Contributions to traditional IRAs may also be deductible, while contributions to Roth are not deductible; however, when you pull qualified money out of your Roth IRA it is not taxed while traditional IRA distributions are added to your taxable income. This chart explains it all: Which IRA is right for you?
    Traditional IRA Roth IRA
    Deductibility** Contributions may be deductible Contributions are not deductible
    Treatment of Earnings Earnings grow tax-free and are added to taxable income for the year distributed Earnings grow tax-deferred and qualified distributions are tax free
    Tax Bracket Good choice if you expect to be in a lower tax bracket when you retire Good choice if you expect to be in a higher tax bracket when you retire
    Income Caps No income caps Income caps may prevent some from contributing
  2. Open either a traditional IRA savings account or a Roth IRA savings account and make contributions. When your account is up to $500, go to step 3.
  3. Earn more interest by opening either a traditional IRA certificate or a Roth IRA certificate. If you already have $500 to contribute, skip step 2.
