Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

Show More

An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) from Community Star Credit Union helps keep individuals’ savings needs in mind, to build a retirement nest egg for later. Offering Traditional and Roth IRAs, we pay dividends to you monthly. In addition, there are no fees for a Community Star Credit Union IRA.

Community Star Credit Union offers Individual Retirement Account (IRA) options to best fit your individual needs. A Certificate IRA has an initial minimum deposit of $500 and ranges from 18 to 60 month terms. The benefit of a Certificate IRA is the fixed interest rate for the term of the certificate, which is much higher than a normal savings account.

An Accumulation IRA has a variable rate and offers a more flexible option for people looking to have an IRA. Deposit money anytime with an Accumulation IRA by direct deposit, payroll deduction or deposits at the Credit Union. The benefit of an Accumulation IRA is your money won’t be tied up for a specific amount of time.

Certificate IRA
  • Fixed rate for the term of the certificate
  • Higher interest than other accounts
  • Terms 18 to 60 months.
  • Can be tax deductible- check with your tax advisor
Accumulation IRA
