IRAs

Investing in an FDIC insured Individual Retirement Account (IRA) with First Western Bank & Trust is a great way to help you save for the future. 

We offer Traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs:

Traditional IRAs
This type of IRA account offers two big advantages or incentives to encourage people to save for retirement. First, Traditional IRA contributions may be tax deductible on the account holder’s tax return. Secondly, earnings on a Traditional IRA are not taxed until the IRA holder or beneficiary takes the money out. It is these accrued earnings, regular deposits, and the passage of time that combine to produce large account balances.

ROTH IRAs
Unlike Traditional IRAs, ROTH contributions are not tax deductible. However, if you satisfy the requirements, qualified distributions (including earnings) are tax-free. Another advantage associated with Roth IRAs is that they are not subject to the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) rules found in Traditional IRAs. Contributions can also be made to your Roth IRA after you reach age 70½ .
