IRA share vs. IRA certificate explained

The IRA share account is the IRA itself. However, once the funds are in your IRA, you may choose to invest it in an IRA Certificate (fixed rate over the term, but rate could change at renewal) to earn a higher rate. All deposits and withdrawals will be run via the IRA share account.

There are advantages to both traditional and Roth IRAs. One of the biggest differences is the time at which you see the most advantage. A traditional IRA provides potential tax relief today, while a Roth IRA has the potential for the most tax benefit at time of retirement.
