Retired or changed jobs? About to receive a distribution from a qualified pension plan? Roll those funds into a traditional IRA. 

Talk with your financial or tax advisor before taking a distribution. If you have an IRA maturing at another financial institution, you have a choice of rolling these funds into a Farmers Bank Traditional or Roth IRA. Funds must be deposited within 60 days of receipt to defer applicable taxes until retirement. Maximum contribution in any year is limited to IRS regulation. See your tax advisor for possible tax benefits.
