Take charge of your future.

If you want to save for retirement, but aren’t quite sure where to start, don’t worry. We can help. An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is one of the most powerful ways to save for your retirement. The Palmetto Bank offers both Traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs to fit your specific needs, especially if you need to rollover an old 401(k) from a previous employer.
