Greater Nevada offers you a variety of ways to invest in your IRA. Whether you have a traditional or a Roth IRA, you have a choice to save via an IRA share account or IRA certificate.

An IRA share account requires no minimum balance or term, and pays a variable rate. This is often chosen for a first-time IRA, or for holding your IRA while you decide where to reinvest it.

IRA certificates require a minimum balance and term, but typically pay a higher fixed rate over IRA share accounts.
