There’s still time!

…to contribute to an IRA for tax-year 2013.

Still haven’t made your IRA contribution for tax-year 2013? No worries. You have until April 15 to make contributions to either a Traditional IRA or a Roth IRA, so there’s still time to set aside up to $5,500 ($6,500 if you’re age 50 or older) in one of these popular retirement savings vehicles.

With a Traditional IRA, if you’re not covered by a 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan, you can typically deduct the full amount of your contribution and enjoy the immediate benefit of a tax deduction. Otherwise, your ability to deduct some or all of your contribution depends on your filing status and income.

A Roth IRA is a little different. Whether or not you can contribute depends upon your filing status and income. If you do qualify, Roth IRA contributions are not tax-deductible, so there will be no immediate 2013 tax benefit. However, distributions are generally free from Federal income tax when withdrawn after age 59 ½, which could serve you well if you expect your future tax rate during retirement to be higher than your current rate.

Regardless of which IRA option you choose, we can help you make sense of it all. But hurry—April 15 is fast approaching! Speak with a CFS Financial Advisor* at NASA FCU today by visiting us at nasafcu.com/investmentservices, or by calling 301-249-1800 or toll-free at 1-888-NASA-FCU (627-2328), ext. 314.

Join Us for the Cherry Blossom Run

CUCBR_vector_logoEach year in April, the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run in Washington, D.C. brings together credit unions from across the country with the shared vision of fundraising and helping children. The proceeds from this event support the 170 Children’s Hospitals that belong to the Children’s Miracle Network.

On April 6, 2014, NASA FCU will once again support this important cause. In 2013, approximately 70 NASA FCU volunteers and 89 NASA FCU runners participated in the 10-Mile Credit Union Cherry Blossom Run. Each year, the event brings together credit unions from across the country in support of the Children’s Miracle Network. The 2013 Washington, D.C.-based event raised another $500,000, bringing the total amount raised to $6.5 million since credit unions became the title sponsors in 2002.

So if getting in shape is on your list resolutions, be sure to join us in April for the Cherry Blossom Run. Can’t run? Support the cause through a donation. Register or donate today.
