Proud of the Past Prepared for the Future...

Glenwood Corporate HQ & Full Service Branch 3503 Peach Street

Federally insured by NCUA

MESSAGE FROM THE CEO A New Landmark in Erie After more than four years in planning and design, and sixteen months of construction, the transformation of the previous Glenwood Elementary School is nearing completion. This facility will provide members with a new full-service branch location and will become the home of Erie Federal Credit Union’s new headquarters. In addition to providing more than 80 years of service to our local community, our investment in this project further confirms our commitment to our members and the neighborhoods in which we serve. Erie FCU provides financial solutions from local people you trust. Local - Our goal would not have been any different. From the beginning, it was extremely important to us that we ensured the majority of the economic impact generated by this project stayed local, right here in Erie. This is why we partnered with a highly talented team of local architects, planners, designers, contractors, artisans, vendors, and suppliers. We were successful in delivering on this promise and the local providers we engaged delivered as well. On behalf of everyone at Erie Federal Credit Union, I would like to thank each and every one of those who assisted in bringing our new Glenwood Headquarters and full-service branch location to fruition. Your long hours and quality of work are recognized. We can all be very proud of what we have accomplished together.

“We can all be very proud of what we have accomplished togther.”

Erie Federal Credit Union is extremely honored to be introducing a new landmark to the city of Erie while maintaining a link to our collective history. We invite you and your family to come visit us and see the difference a credit union membership can make. The official grand opening of this new facility is scheduled for June 20, 2017. Watch for more information on this proud day and additional information on upcoming events and promotions. We look forward to seeing you soon.

The ABCs of IRAs

This popular retirement savings vehicle comes in several varieties. What don’t you know? Many Americans know about Roth and traditional IRAs … but there are other types of IRAs. Here’s a quick look: Traditional IRA (or deductible IRA) is an individual savings plan for anyone who receives taxable compensation. IRA assets may be invested in any number of vehicles, and contributions may be tax-deductible. Earnings in a traditional IRA grow tax-deferred until withdrawal, but will be taxed when withdrawal begins - and withdrawals must begin by the time the IRA owner reaches age 70½.

Your Financial Team

Roth IRA offers you tax-free compounding, tax-free withdrawals if you are older than age 59½ and have owned your account for at least five years, and the potential to make contributions to your IRA after age 70½ without having to take RMDs. SIMPLE IRAs are qualified retirement plans for businesses with 100 or fewer employees. SEP stands for Simplified Employee Pension. These traditional IRAs are set up by an employer for employees and funded by employer contributions only. Spousal IRA is actually a rule that lets a working spouse make traditional or Roth IRA contributions on behalf of a non-working or retired spouse. Inherited IRA is a Roth or traditional IRA inherited by a non-spousal beneficiary. Group IRA is simply a traditional IRA offered by employers, unions, and other employee associations to their employees, administered through a retirement trust. Rollover IRA. Assets distributed from a qualified retirement plan may be rolled over into a traditional IRA, which may be converted later to a Roth IRA. Education IRA (Coverdell ESA) provides a vehicle to help middle-class investors save for a child’s education. Consult a qualified financial advisor regarding your IRA options. There are many choices available, and it is vital that you understand how your choice could affect your financial situation. No one IRA is the “right” IRA for everyone, so do your homework and seek advice before you proceed.
