Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are a form of retirement plan that provides tax advantages for retirement. The main advantage of an IRA is that you defer paying taxes on the earnings and growth of your savings until you actually withdraw the money.

  • Charge of $10.00 on rollovers and transfers
  • IRA Share Certificates for 12, 36, and 60 months are also available
  • Individualized advice is available by calling 570-961-5300

It is never too early to begin saving for retirement, and NET FCU has IRAs for every stage of your life.

Starting your career: As you start your career, start building your retirement plan. A Roth IRA can provide you with tax-free withdrawals when you retire.

Planning as a Couple: We can help both you and your spouse start IRAs. If you both qualify, you can both contribute to an IRA.

Flexibility for a Growing Family: Your IRA investment can be used for a first-time home purchase or qualified educational expenses.

Securing Your Retirement: If you’re nearing retirement, or even if you’re already retired, consider a safe, secure credit union IRA. As an added bonus, there are increased contribution limits if you are age 50 or older.

Reg. D limits do not apply to share draft checking accounts. There is no limit to how many checks you may write or how many debit card transactions you can make.

What you can do to prevent exceeding the limit for Share Savings/Vacation Savings:

  • Have all pre-authorized withdrawals (insurance, utilities, etc.) withdrawn from Share Draft Checking
  • Reduce the number of transfers – Keep sufficient funds in your Share Draft Checking account to cover your checks and withdrawals.
  • Transfer money from an ATM or in person at one of our offices. ATM and in-person transfers do not count against Reg D.
  • Deposit into Share Draft Checking – there is no limit on transfers from your Checking account to your Savings account.
