Retirement Services

There is no better time to think about setting up a retirement fund than right now. It's never too early to start preparing for your retirement. At East Boston Savings Bank we offer many Retirement options designed to help you plan for your future. An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is an easy and inexpensive investment option. You can grow your savings quickly, with minimal risk.

There’s an IRA for everyone. Depending upon your personal financial situation, you may prefer the tax deductible* contributions of a Traditional IRA or the withdrawal flexibility of the Roth IRA. Our specialists can help you invest according to your needs.

Traditional IRA
A Traditional IRA offers unique benefits to help you reach your retirement goals. With a Traditional IRA, you can benefit from possible tax-deductible contributions and earnings that grow tax deferred.

Roth IRA
Roth IRAs offer you an opportunity to create tax-free income during retirement and can be a good way to diversify your future retirement income. The sooner you start, the longer your money can grow.

Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA)
In addition to retirement IRA's we also offer ESAs to help you save for the education expenses for your child, grandchild or other important child in your life. This type of savings plan lets you participate in tax-deferred earnings growth, with complete freedom to manage your investment dollars.

Simplified Employee Pension Plan (SEP)
If you're an employer or are self-employed and are looking to establish a business retirement plan that uses IRAs as the investment vehicle for both you and your employees, a SEP may be the answer. The key advantage of a SEP-IRA is tax deductibility of employer contribution.

IRA Money Market Savings Account
With an East Boston Savings Bank IRA Money Market Savings Account, you can start with as little as $50. Additionally, there are no transaction limitations to this account. 

Direct & Indirect Rollovers & Transfers
Let EBSB help you with your retirement rollovers, transfers or direct rollovers from other qualified pension plans.
