What is a Gold IRA?

Gold IRAs are self-directed individual retirement accounts backed by physical gold instead of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. Precious Metal IRAs (such as a Gold IRA) have hedge against inflation which is essential for asset protection. Since the U.S. got off the 'Gold Standard' in 1971, the Federal Reserve has been recklessly printing money making a Gold Backed IRA an excellent investment and asset protection strategy.

Gold IRA Rollover

The process of converting an existing retirement plan to a Gold IRA is known as a Gold IRA Rollover. There is a 60 day time limit to withdraw funds from your existing retirement plan and complete a deposit into your Gold IRA to qualify for a tax-free and penalty-free Gold IRA Rollover. Gold IRA Rollovers require you to have an existing retirement plan such as a 401(a), 401(k), 403(b), or a Thrift Savings Plan (TSP).

Gold IRA Transfer

The process of transferring an existing Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to a Gold IRA is known as a Gold IRA Transfer. Gold IRA Transfers are tax-free and penalty-free and require you to have an existing IRA such as a Traditional IRA, Simple IRA, Roth IRA or an HSA IRA.


How do I set up a Gold IRA?

To set up a Gold IRA you must have an established account with a custodian that is federally approved to handle physical precious metals. The next step is to buy eligible gold (such as Gold Bullion and/or Gold Proofs) for your Gold IRA.

How do I buy gold for my Gold IRA?

Buying gold for your Gold IRA requires collaboration with an eligible Precious Metals Dealer for a better understanding of availability, pricing, and making your purchase.

What kind of gold can I put in my Gold IRA?

You can put Gold Bullion that is .995 in purity in your Gold IRA. American Gold Eagles are also eligible to be placed in your Gold IRA.
