4-Year IRA CD
The 4-Year IRA CD is a long term CD that provides a conservative means to grow savings with tax advantages. The CD and IRA financial products are joined together to create what some would regard as the best of both worlds. By attaching a fixed time horizon to an IRA and giving tax benefits to a CD, flexibility is an attractive reason to open a 4-Year IRA CD. Because withdrawals from the account before maturity are subject to taxes and early withdrawal penalties, the set ending time can be very helpful in saving for specific events or purchases.
IRA CDs are offered in various categories. If you open a 4-year Traditional IRA CD, you will be forced to take minimum distributions at the age of 70½. These distributions will not be taxed and some banks or credit unions will also waive the early withdrawal penalty (you need to check on this though!). Also, if you are not yet 59½, any funds you remove from an IRA CD early should be transferred into another IRA, or else you will pay a 10 percent tax penalty to the IRS. In a Roth IRA 4-Year CD, however, you can withdrawal funds tax-free because your CD was funded with post-tax dollars.
With regard to opening multiple IRA CDs, your brokerage firm (if you have one) may be helpful, as it is able to work more efficiently with several financial institutions and prevent you from having to go through the opening process at each bank or credit union. This could be a helpful tool for the IRA CD component of your retirement planning.
