The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act)
In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the IRS and Congress recently took actions to provide relief to taxpayers during these uncertain times. The IRS has delayed the 2019 individual tax-filing deadline from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020, which allows 2019 IRA contributions to be made as late as July 15, 2020.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) that was signed into law on March 27, 2020 waives required minimum distributions (RMDs) for IRA owners and beneficiaries for the 2020 calendar year, and allows for penalty-free coronavirus-related distributions up to a total of $100,000.
Please read the Notification of Changes to IRAs for 2020. If you want to waive your IRA RMD (required minimum distribution) for 2020, please complete and return the RMD waiver for 2020 to your nearest FFCCU branch or mail to FFCCU Administrative Office, 4664 East 71st Street, Cuyahoga Heights, OH 44125.
FFCCU offers a wide range of IRA products to help make your retirement dreams come true. Just $50 is required to open the Traditional or Roth IRA. There are no monthly fees**, dividends are paid monthly, and contributions can be made in lump sums or by regular deposits throughout the year.
We offer the following types of IRAs:
- A Traditional IRA is an account that allows you to defer taxes on your earnings until they are withdrawn. Also, certain contributions may be tax deductible in the year they are made.
- The Roth IRA is an account that features tax-free withdrawals for certain distribution reasons after a 5-year holding period. Since Roth IRA contributions are non-deductible and taxed in the year they are earned, members who expect to be in a higher tax bracket when they retire may benefit more from a Roth IRA than from a Traditional IRA. Unlike the traditional IRA, there is no requirement to begin taking distributions at age 70½. There are income limitations for eligibility for a Roth IRA.
