Go Green With Help
from Your Credit Union

Your Credit Union has always supported ethical banking practices. Whether it’s responsible lending or offering BillPayer and Home Banking, here are five tips from the Credit Union that will put you on the “green” path.

Use Online Banking
Access any of your accounts online to transfer money or just check on your account. With ATM access and 24/7 Home banking, you’ll always have access to your funds.

Pay Bills Online
Almost every company that sends you a paper bill will gladly stop sending you a paper bill and accept an online bill payment through their website or North Penn FCU. Our BillPayer allows you to pay up to ten bills per month, FREE!

Stop with the Blank Checks!
You CAN get those blank cash advance checks from your credit card company to stop showing up. Call the number listed in the letter and tell them you no longer want to receive the checks. If you are receiving unsolicited credit card offers, have your name removed from credit bureau marketing lists. Call 888-5OPTOUT (888-567-8688).

Get Your Paycheck Directly Deposited
Most employers offer direct deposit of your paycheck. Your money gets here faster, too. You can use Direct Deposit for social security checks, tax refunds, and pension deposits as well.

What’s the Difference Between a Traditional and Roth IRA?


  • Traditional: All workers under age 70 1/2 at the end of the calendar year.
  • Roth: No age restrictions to open. Fully eligible if income is below $95,000 (single) or $150,000 (joint). Increasing limits apply if income is higher; not eligible if income is above $110,000 (single) or $160,000 (joint).


  • Traditional: Made with pre-tax income. Reduces gross taxable income for that year by the amount contributed.
  • Roth: Made with after-tax income.

Tax Benefits of Contributions:

  • Traditional: Fully deductible if you don’t have an employer retirement plan. Nondeductible if you’re covered by an employer retirement plan and have a modified adjusted gross income above $65,000 (single) or $89,000 (married filing joint, and depending on who has a retirement plan at work). Partially deductible if you have a modified adjusted gross income in 2009 between $55,000-$65,000 (single) or between $89,000-$109,000 (married filing joint).
  • Roth: Not deductible. If converting from IRA to Roth IRA, the taxable portion of the IRA is taxed in year of conversion.

Maximum Contribution (per individual):

  • Both Traditional and Roth:
    Under age 50: Over age 50:
    2008 $5,000 2008 $6,000
    2009 $5,000 2009 $6,000
    2010 Indexed to Inflation 2010 Indexed to Inflation


  • Both: No annual limit on amount rolled over from another qualified plan


  • Roth: May convert from IRA to Roth IRA if income is $100,000 or less.
