Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA)

It's never too soon to think about retirement, and a Minnesota Valley Federal Credit Union IRA (Individual Retirement Account) is one of the easiest ways to save for your retirement years. We offer both Traditional and Roth IRAs and we pay competitive dividends on each. We also offer Coverdell IRAs, which can be used to save for college expenses. Our IRAs offer various tax advantages, as allowed by law. So, check with your tax advisor to determine which one is right for you. View CURRENT RATES.
