Why Gold IRAs?

Stability

Unlike the US dollar, which has lost 98% of its purchasing power since 1971, gold’s purchasing power remains stable over time.

Outperformance

Your IRA could outperform both the Dow Jones and S&P 500 based on recent trends.

3 Steps to a Gold IRA

At Goldco, our goal is to make it easy for you to get the benefit of owning physical gold or silver. We believe precious metals ownership is an important part of your overall retirement savings strategy.

You can open a Precious Metals IRA by signing an agreement to secure your purchase and understand Goldco’s terms of doing business. A company representative will walk you through every step of the process.

You can fund your Precious Metals IRA by rolling over assets from your existing retirement accounts. For example, 401(k), 403(b), TSP, savings or IRA accounts call all be rolled over or transferred, those rollovers and transfers normally take place without tax consequences.

Once your Precious Metals IRA is funded, you can choose which precious metals you’d like to have as a part of it.
