Individual Retirement Accounts were created to help an individual save for retirement! Alliance Bank invests funds into CDs, but the funds can be invested into mutual funds, stocks, bonds, etc. through our Investment Center. Think of IRAs as a "set of rules" rather than a specific product.  
The information provided below is in regards to Alliance Bank IRA products.

Traditional IRAs 
A Traditional IRA is a personal retirement savings plan with tax advantages. The investment grows tax-deferred until its withdrawn upon retirement. 
Roth IRAs 
This is an ideal investment if you think you may be in a higher tax bracket when you retire. The Roth IRA gives you the ability to invest your after-tax dollars today, let the investment grow tax-deferred, and take qualifying withdrawals tax-free. 
A Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) is a company-sponsored IRA that allows your employer to contribute to your existing IRA. These contributions are tax deductible.
