IRA Individual Retirement Accounts CD's - Minnesota Personal BankingSaving for retirement is on many minds today.  With the possibility of Social Security running out, or even to supplement that income, putting your money in an IRA will be a great benefit once you reach retirement.  Also, because it is a CD, these IRAs will earn better interest rates, helping to grow your money faster.  Also, with two options, the Roth IRA or the Traditional IRA, we can help find the perfect fit for you, and get you started on watching your money grow.
