Principal Bank®

Principal Bank is a subsidiary of Principal® and specializes in FDIC-insured individual retirement accounts (IRAs).1

Traditional and Roth IRAs offer the features and tax advantages IRAs are known for, with the added security of FDIC insurance. Money market accounts or CDs can be held within either of these types of IRAs.
Retirement funds from a past employer’s retirement account may have automatically rolled over into an FDIC-insured savings account IRA if you left employment and had less than $5,000 in your retirement account or the employer decided to close the retirement plan. This account is meant to be a short-term parking spot until you decide what to do with your savings. These accounts aim to minimize investment risk and preserve savings until you find the right destination for your money.
