Insured Savings and Certificates
The NCUSIF is widely recognized as the best managed of all federal deposit insurance funds, better than the programs that insure banks or savings and loans.
H & E requires a $25 minimum to maintain a savings account. Interest is paid on all balances above $50. H & E attempts to pay rates above average rates at banks, and rates are examined and may be changed quarterly. Interest is compounded daily and credited quarterly to accounts on January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1.
Certificates of Deposit (CDs) are issued in a minimum of $1000. H & E offers 6 month and 12 month CDs with interest compounding daily and posting quarterly. Our 2 year and 3 year CDs pay simple interest posted at maturity.

H&E IRAs do not have time limitations; they are run as “super” savings accounts and always pay the highest rate of interest of any H&E accounts. This means you receive our best interest rate, yet maintain the ability to take withdrawals or roll over monies whenever it makes sense for your finances (subject to federal regulations).
H&E currently offers Traditional IRAs, Roth IRAs, and Coverdell Education Savings Account IRAs.
- Traditional IRA
You must have earned income to make contributions to a Traditional or Roth IRA. Traditional IRA contributions are fully tax deductible if you are not an active participant in an employer retirement plan. Otherwise, phaseout rules apply. Investments grow on a tax-deferred basis. Earnings are taxed on withdrawal.
The contribution limit is $5000.00 adjusted annually for inflation in $500 increments. The annual limits apply to Traditional and Roth IRA's. The curent annual limit is $5500.00 if you are under 50. If you are over 50, you may contribute $6500.Traditional IRAs may be funded until you reach the age of 70 ½ , after which you must begin withdrawals. Required minimus Distributions are based on life expectancy and the balance of the IRA on Dec. 31 of theprior year. You may begin from the IRA without penalty after you reach the age of 59 ½ . Distributions prior to that age are subject to a 10% early withdrawal penalty by the IRS with certain exceptions.
- Roth IRA
As long as you have earned income, you can establish and contribute to a Roth IRA, even after age 70 ½ . While contributions are not tax deductible, contributions and earnings can be withdrawn tax free, and unlike tradition IRAs, you are not required to begin taking required minimum distributions after reaching age 70 ½. You can convert your Traditional IRA to a Roth IRA to enjoy later tax free withdrawals, but the amount you convert is subject to income tax now. Also, individuals with incomes above $117,000 and couples with incomes over $184,000 have contributions gradually phrased out.
- Coverdell Education Savings Accounts
ESAs allow you to put money away for higher education expenses, earning interest tax free. While there is no tax deduction for amounts contributed to an ESA, earnings grow tax free. As in Roth IRAs, contribution amounts are phased out for individuals earning over $95,000 and couples earning over $190,000 No contributions are allowed to the account after the beneficiary reaches the age of 18.
- Catch-Up Contributions
Individuals who have reached age 50 by the end of the year can make additional "catch-up" contributions of $1000 per year. For taxable year 2006 and theafter, the catch-up amount increases to $1000 per year.
