DEFER TAX* while you SAVE for your RETIREMENT


As we approach the tax-filing deadline, it might be a good time for you to consider opening an “Individual Retirement Account” (IRA). An IRA provides tax advantages* while you save for your retirement. If you have a variety of accounts that you opened over time, including a 401(K), you might want to have the time and cost-saving benefits of rolling-over or consolidation.


Today’s IRA offers more options than ever before to better reflect your individual needs. For example: Certificate of Deposits (CDs) offer a fixed yield for a fixed term of your choice. First American International Bank (FAIB) continuously provides competitive rates and steady returns. As of 2/11/14, 3-year CD rates are 1.10%; 4-year rates are 1.35%; and 5-year rates are 1.55%. The minimum opening balance is only $500 and funds are insured by the FDIC.
