Understanding IRAs at CCB:

At CCB, we offer a range of IRAs designed to suit different needs and preferences. Our IRAs provide a tax-advantaged way to save for retirement, allowing you to enjoy potential tax deductions on contributions and tax-free growth on your investments until you start making withdrawals in retirement.

Types of IRAs offered at CCB:

Traditional IRA:

With a Traditional IRA, you may be eligible for tax-deductible contributions, helping you reduce your taxable income for the year. Earnings on your investments within the Traditional IRA grow tax-deferred until you withdraw them in retirement.

Roth IRA:

Roth IRAs offer tax-free withdrawals in retirement, as contributions are made with after-tax dollars. This option is ideal for those anticipating higher tax brackets in retirement or anyone seeking tax-free growth potential.

For those looking to save for education expenses, our Coverdell ESA allows tax-free withdrawals for qualified education expenses.
