Saving Options

There's no one-size-fits-all way to build your retirement savings. At Summit Credit Union, we offer Individual Retirement Arrangements that let you combine several types of accounts.

IRA Accumulator 

  • No minimum balance required on the account.
  • Deposit funds as you would with a regular savings account.
  • Dividends are paid quarterly.
  • If the balance is below $500, there is a $5 quarterly maintenance fee.
  • Annual deposit restrictions may apply. Consult a tax professional for more information on your individual limits.

IRA Certificate

  • An IRA Certificate works just like an ordinary Certificate of Deposit, while also providing tax benefits.
  • An IRA Certificate offers a set rate of interest for a particular period of time. Certificates have an established minimum investment amount and a predetermined maturity period.
  • Deposit a minimum of $500 for a Regular IRA Certificate and $10,000 for a Jumbo IRA Certificate.
  • Dividends are paid quarterly for the length of the term.
  • Annual deposit restrictions may apply. Consult a tax professional for more information on your individual limits.

Summit Credit Union is a full-service financial institution with eight branches throughout North Carolina.
