Resources for Retirement

It’s Easy to Get Started

The U.S. Department of the Treasury has launched myRA (my Retirement Account), a new retirement savings account that can help people start saving for their future. If you don’t have access to a retirement savings plan through your job, myRA could be a good option for you.

Why Try a myRA Account?

myRA was developed to remove common barriers that keep people from saving. It’s simple, safe and affordable.

  • No cost or fees to open and maintain an account
  • Contribute an amount you choose every payday ($2, $20, $200 – whatever fits your budget!)
  • myRA will not lose money
  • The investment is backed by the U.S. Treasury
  • If you change jobs, the account stays with you, and you can contribute from multiple employers
  • Withdraw the money you put in without tax and penalty
