Time is running out to make your 2011 IRA contributions!

You have until April 17, 2012 to make a 2011 contribution to your Traditional or Roth IRA.

IRA's are an important component to every retirement plan. If you don’t have an IRA, you owe it to yourself and your financial future to start your account now. If you have an IRA anywhere else, here are some reasons to consider moving your IRA to Lake Michigan Credit Union:

• No opening, maintenance, or transaction fees.
• No minimum balance requirements.
• Investment options include an IRA Money Market savings or IRA Certificate of Deposit.
• Long-term investment options.
• Direct deposit.
• Free 24 hour online and phone banking.
• IRAs are insured by the NCUA up to $250,000.
