Ramp up Your Retirement Savings
Saving for retirement is more important than ever. And, as always, taking advantage of time is critical.
Even if you contribute only a small amount to your workplace retirement plan or Individual Retirement Account (IRA) each week, it can make a tremendous difference over the long term. How big a difference? See the chart below to see how even a little bit adds up.

*Hypothetical example assumes weekly deposits in an IRA averaging a 4.00% interest rate, compounded daily (4.08% annual percentage yield). Your interest rate and APY may differ.
Contributions to a Traditional IRA are generally tax-deductible (talk to your tax advisor to make sure you qualify). What’s more, the money you put aside in an IRA at Millbury Savings Bank is fully insured by the FDIC and DIF.
Government regulations set the maximum allowable IRA contribution each year—one amount for individuals up to age 50 and a higher amount for individuals between 50 and 70½—and contributions for one tax year typically can be made up until April 15 of the following tax year. So, you can increase your savings and your tax benefits at the same time.
