Annuity Accounts

Already retired or hoping to be soon? Our Fixed-Term Fixed Rate Annuity Share Account is a great choice for supplementing your monthly income!

Unlike annuities offered by insurance companies, this account will never lose value and is guaranteed to pay more than 100% of your original deposit! Also, unlike many others, it pays 100% of any remaining balance in full to your beneficiaries upon death.

To open one of these valuable accounts or learn more, please contact Member Services at (800) 765-4527.

Parsons FCU offers both Traditional and Roth IRA options for your retirement. The Traditional IRA is your basic account that allows you the flexibility of making regular and ongoing contributions. Contributions to your IRA may be deductible on your income taxes and your account earnings are tax deferred. (Always consult with a qualified tax or investment advisor for tax deductibility qualifications.)

Traditional IRA

  • Contributions often are tax-deductible
  • Earnings grow tax-deferred
  • Distributions generally are taxable
  • Distributions before you reach age 59½ are subject to penalty unless you meet an early distribution penalty exception.
  • Required minimum distributions must begin at age 70½

Roth IRA

  • Contributions are not deductible
  • Earnings grow tax-deferred
  • Contributions generally can be distributed tax-free at any time
  • Earning can be distributed tax-free five (5) years after opening the account, or when you have reached age 59½. Tax-free distributions may also be taken if the account owner dies or becomes disabled, or to pay first-time home buyer expense, or for supporting the account owners education expenses
  • Distributions are not required until after the Roth IRA holder dies

Traditional and Roth IRA contribution limits are:

  • Tax Year 2016 - $5,500.
  • Individuals 50 or more can make an additional $1,000 "catch-up" contribution per year

Don’t need your retirement funds for a while? Lock them up as certificates for a higher rate, as all certificate rates apply to IRA Accounts as well.
