What are the different types of self-directed IRAs?

There are 2 types of self-directed IRAs:

  • Traditional IRA
    • Allow you to deposit pre-tax money to invest
    • Pay tax only when the funds are withdrawn
    • By contributing to a traditional IRA, there may be tax benefits where you may be able to lower your current tax bracket as your contributions are tax-deductible
    • Investors who are in too high of a tax bracket to qualify for a ROTH IRA can still choose to contribute to a traditional IRA
    • Investors should consider the tax benefits of choosing a traditional IRA if they anticipate their tax rate at retirement to be lower than their current tax rate
    • Allow you to deposit post-tax money to invest
    • Upon reaching retirement age (59.5 years old), you can withdraw without paying tax with the condition that the account has been opened for 5 years
    • Investors above 70.5 years old can still contribute
    • No RMD (Required Minimum Distributions)
    • Investors should consider choosing a ROTH IRA if they anticipate their tax rate at retirement to be higher than their current tax rate
Can I rollover or transfer an existing IRA to a self-directed precious metals IRA?

Yes. Your self-directed IRA custodian can help you arrange to rollover or transfer your existing IRA into a precious metals IRA to buy physical gold and silver.

Are my metals fully insured in your vault?

Yes. Your bullion is covered for all physical loss or damage risks, including terrorism and sabotage, mysterious disappearance (unknown causes), and infidelity of employees (inside jobs).

Mysterious disappearance covers precious metals losses that cannot be explained or substantiated by police, thereby requiring the insurance to be extraordinarily confident in a vaulting company's operations.
