The Easy Way to Contribute to an IRA

The Easy Way to Contribute to an IRA

It's never too early or too late to plan and save for retirement. Still, the closer you get to retirement, the tougher it becomes. With the hectic lives people live today, an easy, less time-consuming retirement investment is what they need. The solution is an IRA (individual retirement account).

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) makes it easy to contribute to an IRA. Employers can allow employees to contribute to a traditional or a Roth IRA by direct deposit through payroll deduction. In addition, employees making direct deposits of deductible contributions to a traditional IRA may be able to adjust their federal income tax withholding to receive a more immediate tax benefit from their contributions. Check out the IRS website for more information (www.irs.gov).

Make your IRA habit-forming. At Brokaw Credit Union, we'll help you get your retirement plan off to the right start and make contributing to an IRA easy with direct deposit and payroll deduction.

The 4 Best Things College Students Can Do With Their Tax Refund

The 4 Best Things College Students Can Do With Their Tax Refund

For many of us who have recently graduated school or are still in school, tax season can be a happy time financially. Many people will get a tax refund from the IRS, and more will squander that money before it has a chance to make it through one statement.

Here are some ways to spend it responsibly and feel good about it.

  1. Let it grow
    Consider putting all of that money or part of it into a high-yield savings account. Instead of just holding on to it, why not let it grow while it’s sitting in your savings? Talk to us about the right fit for your financial situation.
  2. Invest
    If you’ve been waiting on an injection of extra cash to take the first step, consider this your investment window. Finding the right investment opportunity for you and your financial outlook is much easier to do if you’ve got the cash on hand. Talk to us to see what advice we might offer for starting your portfolio. And don’t forget, we have financial advisors on site if needed.
  3. Pay it off
    This one ties in closely to suggestion No. 1. If you’ve got a credit card or loan accruing more interest monthly than you would gain in a CD or similar account, consider paying that off. Take a look at your obligations and see if one of them can be knocked out all at once with a portion of that tax refund.
  4. Give yourself a small treat
    It’s all right to spend a little on yourself. You work hard on your budget, and, hopefully, figured out a financially responsible way to spend a major portion that refund money. Take what’s left and buy yourself something fun.

Happy tax-refund season! Spend responsibly.
