Silver Bullion - Gold Bullion - Self Directed IRA in 6 Steps
Before getting into the how to's involved in the six steps, take a couple minutes and check out our Self Directed IRA silver bullion and gold bullion products.
Opening a New Self-Directed IRA account is as simple as opening a bank or brokerage account. Simply complete a new account application and you are on your way to taking control of your retirement.
Funding your account can be accomplished a couple different ways. If it is your first IRA, you can write a check for your annual contribution. Most people, however, already have an IRA and are looking to move a portion of their assets or an old employer sponsored 401(k) plan into a Self-directed IRA. Depending on your scenario, and your current IRA provider, there could be any number of steps required. It usually requires completing your current providers form, and sending it back to them. Once they receive your documents, they will initiate the funds transfer.
Once your account is funded, you are ready to place your silver bullion or gold bullion order with us. To accomplish this step, just call us and we’ll enter your order and send you the invoice. Next, you’ll need to authorize your custodian to fulfill payment of the invoice. Once this is complete, everything is finished on your end.
The Trust company will verify the invoice we send them and your instructions. When our invoice and your instructions match, they will wire us the payment for your silver bullion and gold bullion order.
We will process your order and ship the exact amount of troy ounces (silver bullion/gold bullion) to your depository. Usually, we ship to Delaware Depository, but we are able to ship to any IRS approved Depository of your choosing. You’ll receive status updates on your order; in normal market conditions, the metals will arrive within 1-3 weeks.
Your Trust company will notify when the order arrives at the Depository, verify the Gold bullion/Silver bullion received, the exact amount of Troy Ounces, and reflect your holdings in your account. They will provide ongoing statement reporting and valuation so you know the value of your account.
By opening a precious metals IRA through IRAmetals, you’ll feel confident that your investments are secure. Accounts are opened by an independent third party custodian. We recommend Entrust or Sterling Trust. Physical gold bullion and silver bullion is stored at the Delaware Depository (DDSC). The DDSC is a COMEX/NYMEX approved storage facility, and its clients are some of the largest institutions in the world.
When you proactively purchase physical gold bullion and silver bullion, you are taking possession of a physical asset that has never lost its entire value. None of your other precious metal investment options are as tangible as physical gold bullion or physical silver bullion. You can own mining shares, ETFs, Futures Contracts. All of these at the end of the day are a piece of paper, “backed by the asset”. Clearly physical bullion is the most secure way to own precious metals. And when you put precious metals into your retirement account, you can be confident that metal is being removed from world inventories.
You are in complete control. You decide what to invest, when to invest, and how much to invest. We never offer investment advice. You can choose between having the investments held within the constraints of the existing financial system by using a standard IRA account & purchasing bullion directly that will be held at Delaware Depository. Or, if you have lost faith in the financial system, you can establish an account & setup a structure that allows metals to be purchased and stored at your discretion, so long as it doesn't violate the IRS rules regarding "Personal Use".
