How do I keep my precious metals safe while they’re in my IRA

When you open a Goldco Precious Metals IRA, we’ll help you transfer your gold, silver and other precious metals to a secure vault in an IRS-approved depository.

The IRS requires physical metals funding a precious metals IRA account be maintained by a depository and administered by the custodial financial institution. This ensures the safety of each account’s assets until the owner reaches age 59 1/2, when he or she becomes eligible to take qualified distributions.
