Retirement Accounts that Work for You

Our flexible IRA accounts help you save for retirement, and save on taxes, too. Even if you already have a 401(k), a BECU IRA is a good way to supplement an employer-sponsored plan. Some of our IRAs are even held as fixed rate CDs with terms from 12 to 60 months, allowing you to create a strategy that works for you.

Which IRA is right for you?

Traditional IRA

This individual retirement account is for those who are looking for tax deferred growth potential, as IRA contributions may be tax deductible depending on your circumstances. Many people pay fewer taxes on these earnings because they move to a lower tax bracket after retirement.

Roth IRA

Offers more flexibility than Traditional IRA around how and when money can be withdrawn.  This individual retirement account has the same contribution limits as a traditional IRA, but you don't have to be under 70-1/2 years old to contribute. Contributions are not tax-deductible during the current tax year, but the earnings on your contributions are tax-deferred and may be tax-free if you wait to withdraw funds until you've had your Roth IRA for at least five years and you either reach the age of 59-1/2, become disabled, or qualify as a first-time homebuyer.

Coverdell Educational Savings Account (ESA)

This account helps pay for a child's education. When used to pay for qualified education expenses, the earnings on your contributions are tax-free.
