We offer Traditional, Roth and Simplified Employee Pension Plan (SEP) Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA). You can add to your IRA at any time and there is no fee. We offer maturities from 18 months to 5 years.
Distributions from IRAs before age 59 ½ may be subject to an IRS early withdrawal penalty. Please consult your tax advisor or accountant with any tax-related decisions.

Good planning can make your retirement years more enjoyable and ease the financial burden later. Farmers State Bank offers competitive rates to help you prepare for those golden years ahead. To help you decide on which term and rate will best meet your needs, a customer service representative at Farmers State Bank will be happy to help you.

*All IRA's are FDIC Insured up to $250,000.
