Leighton State Bank offers the following IRA types...

  • Traditional IRA – offers you a tax-advantaged way to invest for retirement.  Contributions are tax-deferred until withdrawal (you may begin to take distributions at age 59½ without penalty). Traditional IRA contributions may be tax deductible, depending on your annual income.
  • Roth IRA – contributions are made after taxes so your contributions grow tax free.  Future withdrawals are free from federal income tax and penalty once you have had the account for at least five years and reached the age of 59½.
  • Flex IRA – gives you flexibility!  Choose the term and date of contribution (weekly, monthly, quarterly or semi-annually).  You decide if your Flex IRA will be taxed now or tax-deferred.
