HOW TO PROTECT YOUR IRA WITH NON-TRADITIONAL ASSETS

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CAN I TAKE CUSTODY OF MY IRA ASSETS?

No. All IRA assets MUST remain within the custody of a custodian or trustee of the IRA. You may take a distribution of your assets in your IRA which is a TAXABLE event reported to the IRS. Unless you make a qualified rollover contribution of the assets into another plan, you will probably owe income taxes on the value of the distribution and are likely to be subject to a penalty for a premature distribution as well. As always, consult with your investment advisors regarding these matters.

WHAT IS A SELF-DIRECTED IRA?

A self-directed IRA is exactly like any other IRA, with one major difference. YOU get to choose where your IRA funds will be invested rather than just accepting whatever the IRA trustee of custodian offers. This gives you greater flexibility because you can choose precious metals, stocks, bonds, CDs, mutual funds, government obligations and other investments.

HOW DO I MOVE MY EXISTING IRA TO A NEW CUSTODIAN SO I CAN FUND IT WITH PRECIOUS METALS?

Money in an existing IRA can be moved to a new custodian by either a TRANSFER or a ROLLOVER. A transfer DOES NOT require IRS reporting, and there are NO RESTRICTIONS on how often you can transfer funds. Your CUSTODIAN will contact the previous institution and take care of getting the funds moved. Special rules apply if you have reached 70 ½ , and you should check with the previous trustee or custodian to see if there will be fees or penalties.

CAN I CONTRIBUTE BULLION OR COINS I ALREADY OWN INTO A SELF-DIRECTED IRA?

WHY SHOULD I MAKE A CONTRIBUTION IF IT IS NOT A TAX DEDUCTION?

Non-deductible contributions grow tax-free in a ROTH IRA and tax-deferred in a TRADITIONAL IRA. This tax-favored treatment usually makes even a non-deductible contribution a smart move.

MY BANK IRA IS FREE. WHY IS THERE A FEE FOR MY SELF-DIRECTED IRA?

A bank has its fee built into the interest rate is pays you. In addition, a bank probably will not allow you to invest in precious metals. Since the custodian that is holding the precious metals receives no commission from any of your investment actions, separate fees are necessary to cover the cost of maintenance and storage.

HOW MUCH WILL AN IRA DENOMINATED IN PRECIOUS METALS COST ME EVERY YEAR?

It is cheaper than you might think! The majority of the fee is for storage. Since you are purchasing physical metals for your account, they need a place to be stored safely. The fees should range in the $200-$300 range annually, regardless of the amount of metals in your account.

WHEN I QUALIFY FOR A DISTRIBUTION, MAY I RECEIVE THE COINS INSTEAD OF A CHECK?

HOW WILL THE COINS BE PHYSICALLY STORED?

When the coins arrive at the storage facility, the shipment will be opened in order to inspect the contents. The contents will then be resealed in the same shipping box and placed in the vault. This insures the coins that were acquired on a client’s behalf are the very same coins that are delivered.

HOW SAFE IS THE STORAGE FACILITY WHERE MY COINS WILL BE STORED?

Our selected custodians utilize the two oldest and largest private storage facilities in the country. The coins are insured and remain locked in the safest possible environment.

CAN I SELL MY PRECIOUS METALS IN THE FUTURE AND TRANSFER OR ROLL OVER THE PROCEEDS INTO ANOTHER TYPE OF IRA?

Yes. At some point in the future you may choose to take profits on your precious metals holdings and transfer them into stocks, bonds, CDs or any other type of investments that are allowed in IRAs.
