There are two safe, tax-free and penalty-free methods used to transfer money between retirement accounts: the direct trustee-to-trustee transfer and the 60-day rollover option. The trustee-to-trustee process moves your retirement monies from your current IRA provider directly into the hands of your new Precious Metals IRA provider. If the 60-day rollover method is used, your current IRA account provider mails a check to your home address; you will then simply mail that check directly to your new Precious Metals IRA provider. As long as this check is provided to the new IRA custodian and deposited into your new IRA account within 60-days, there are no taxes or penalties incurred. We know this rollover process can seem complicated and we urge our clients to let us do the heavy lifting! With your consent, your IRA Gold Specialist will assess which method would work best for your portfolio. We will handle the entire process on your behalf, filling out the paperwork or making any necessary phone calls.
