Benefits of Online Banking

Managing your money on the go has never been easier. You can bank from your mobile device or personal computer with ease. We know life is busy, and that you don’t always have the time to spend at a bank or financial institution. We made it so you can easily handle many things from your online banking account, including:

  • Bill payments
  • Transfer money between your accounts
  • Mobile deposit
  • Review past transactions

To access all the benefits of your checking account online, download the F&M Bank MobilePlus! Banking App. You can even connect your account to accounts at other banks and credit unions. You can also use the app to find nearby F&M Banks and approved ATMs so you can avoid paying out of network ATM charges.

The more money in your account the more interest you can earn back. That’s why for this option we require a minimum of $2,500 with no fee. This is what allows us to provide interest rates comparable with insured CD savings accounts.

If your goal is earning interest back on your account, you may consider a high rate savings account. Even though our Choice and VIP checking accounts offer higher rates than our other checking accounts, high yielding savings accounts will offer more returns.

On the other hand, if you need flexibility and fluid access to your account and funds, then a checking account is most likely the best option. You can always give us a call and we’ll be happy to review all your options.

F&M ONLINE RETIREMENT CALCULATORS

Traditional IRA

With a Traditional IRA, you can benefit from possible tax-deductible contributions and earnings that grow tax deferred. This is a simple way to save funds and pay fewer income taxes. Employer contributions often offer incentives and will match the funds you add to your account as long as they come from your paycheck.

  • Contributions may be tax-deductible, or you may be able to make non-deductible contributions.*
  • Earnings that remain invested are tax-deferred.
  • Taxes are paid at the time of distribution (usually after retirement).
  • You are eligible to contribute if you've earned income and won't be 70½ years of age by December 31.
  • Account Statements – Mailed annually
  • Insured by the FDIC
  • Current CD / IRA Rates

Roth IRA

A Roth IRA may be appropriate for investors with growing earning potential who expect the same or higher tax rate in retirement. The primary requirement for contribution is having earned income. This comes from a paycheck, tips, bonuses, and running your own business. Assets and rental properties are some types of income that aren't considered earned income.

  • Contributions are made after tax, but earnings can remain invested tax-free.*
  • Qualified distributions are tax-free after age 59½
  • You can withdraw contributions tax-free at any time.
  • More information about Roth IRAs

Rollover IRA

If you're leaving a job, retiring or have money left in a former employer's retirement plan, you may want to consider rolling over your plan account balance to an F&M Bank IRA.

  • Eligible distributions from an employer-sponsored retirement plan can be directly transferred into a Rollover IRA.
  • Direct rollover avoids 20% withholding requirement on distributions from employer-sponsored plans.

SEP IRA – Simplified Employee Pension

Self-employed individuals and small business owners can contribute to a retirement plan with higher contribution limits than other types of IRAs to help them grow tax free and save for retirement.

  • All eligible employees are covered.
  • Any contributions in a SEP are 100% vested immediately.
  • Administration may be simpler than a 401(k) plan.
  • Earnings can grow tax-deferred.
  • Higher annual contribution limits

Catch Up Contribution

If you are over the age 50, you may be eligible to make additional contributions to your retirement accounts. This is part of the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 to help older individuals set aside enough money for their retirement.

Individuals can make catch-up contributions through their employee 401(k) but if this is not available, they can contribute to traditional and Roth retirement plans they set up for themselves.
