Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)
The Baton Rouge Fire Department Federal Credit Union offers you several alternatives to help you plan for your future with our Individual Retirement Account options. An IRA is a special type of savings plan designed to help you save money for your retirement.

Traditional, Roth and Education IRA Accounts are offered, along with IRA Share Certificates.

Traditional IRA
A traditional IRA is a special type of savings plan designed to help the owner save for retirement. It offers tax-deferred earnings and the possibility of tax-deductible contributions.

Roth IRA
This is a "back-ended" IRA type, which is funded with non-deductible contributions and gives owners the opportunity for tax-free withdrawals. You can let your money grow tax-free in the Roth IRA Account for as long as you like.

Education IRA
The Education IRA's sole purpose is to help pay the higher education expenses of the child named on the account. But an Education IRA alone may not be enough to cover the cost of college. It should be viewed as a start for college savings.
