Any member under the age of 70 ½ with earned income may deposit up to the allowable contribution per year or 100% of annual compensation, whichever is less, into a traditional IRA account. Contributions may be tax-deductible depending on the participant's income. A traditional IRA defers federal income taxes on the earnings. Contribution limits and tax-deferred amounts are dependent upon your adjusted gross income and participation in other qualified plans.
Most members with earned income may contribute up to the allowable contribution per year to a Roth IRA. Higher income levels may qualify for reduced contributions. Unlike the traditional IRA, the Roth IRA has no mandatory withdrawal age. Participants can also make contributions past age 70 ½ if earning income. Contributions to Roth IRAs are not tax-deductible; however, the earnings may be tax-free if the withdrawals meet certain criteria as established by the Internal Revenue Service.
Attention DROP Participants: Roll over your DROP Account or other funds into a Safe, Secure, and Stable AlaTrust Credit Union account. You can avoid tax penalties and roll over your DROP account to an IRA Certificate at AlaTrust Credit Union. Simply complete the Request for Distribution for DROP (RSA 10 D-D) form and the Request for DROP Termination (TRS 10 D-C) form and return both to the TRS. Then contact AlaTrust at 800-264-8031 to open the IRA account and set up your withdrawal methods. Your payment will not be taxed in the current year, and no income tax will be withheld.
