Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

The earlier you open a Individual Retirement Account, also known as an IRA or retirement savings account, the bigger your nest egg will grow and the more you can enjoy your retirement years. DCCU offers different types and terms of IRA certificates. IRA Certificates offer guaranteed dividends with no risk. The minimum to open a traditional or Roth IRA certificate is $500.* Certificate terms are 12-60 months and dividends are paid on a quarterly basis. Check out our great individual retirement account rates. It's easy to roll over or change terms when your certificate matures.
