We have a wide selection of IRA Certificates of Deposit for both Roth and Traditional IRA investments. Variable rate IRA CDs may take additional contributions (according to contribution limits established by the IRS), plus rollovers and direct rollovers (from an employer plan) and transfers from other institutions. Fixed rate CDs are established with the investment amount and interest rate for the term of the CD.

Please consult with your tax or legal professional to help make the best decisions regarding your IRA and then visit our main office to speak with one of our new account representatives if you have further questions about establishing your Individual Retirement Account at Blissfield State Bank.
