What is the difference between an IRA Savings Account and an IRA Certificate?

Only $5 is required to open an IRA Savings Account. Just like a regular savings account, you can make deposits and watch your balances grow in these accounts. All other IRA certificates require a starting balance of $100 or more and no additional contributions can be made until maturity. Keep in mind, however, that there are early-withdrawal fees and penalties with both IRA Savings Accounts and with IRA Certificates.
