Do more for your retirement with an IRA

No matter how near or far off your retirement is, the tax advantages of an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) can be too great to pass up. Using both an IRA and an employer-sponsored plan (such as a 401(k), 503(b), or pension plan) provides the opportunity to invest even more for your retirement. With Cornerstone Fund IRAs, you can enjoy the benefit of fixed income IRA products like term notes, while still enjoying the tax advantages of an IRA.

Choose the type of IRA that best meets your needs

There are several different types of Individual Retirement Accounts that are offered by the Cornerstone Fund. The Cornerstone Fund offers Traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs, as well as SEP IRA accounts for small business owners. The direct contribution amount you can make to an IRA on a yearly basis is limited by your age and is published annually by the IRS; there is no limit for direct rollovers from qualifying retirement accounts. We strongly encourage consultation with an independent financial or estate planning advisor when considering your IRA selection(s).

Grow your retirement savings with a Cornerstone Fund IRA

Start with as little as $500 and build your retirement savings through potential growth. Plus, your investment supports the mission of the Cornerstone Fund to offer low-cost loans to local United Church of Christ ministries and organizations.
