A Year to Remember

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, we are proud to say that we have walked step-by-step with members providing financial solutions to lower and reduce the cost of debt and deliver a safe and secure place for savings to grow. We also offered financial education and tools to make everyday financial transactions easy and gave local businesses assistance as they navigated the Paycheck Protection Program.

How To:
401(k) and IRA: A Combined Savings Strategy

Contributing to an employer-sponsored retirement plan or an IRA is a big step on the road to retirement, but contributing to both can significantly boost your retirement assets. A recent study found that, on average, individuals who owned both a 401(k) and an IRA at some point during the six-year period of the study had combined balances about 2.5 times higher than those who owned only a 401(k) or an IRA. And people who owned both types of accounts consistently over the period had even higher balances.3
