Why Silver IRAs?

Growth Potential

Growing industrial usage, strong investment demand, and a declining silver supply could combine to drive the silver price up significantly.

Tangibility and Transparency

The tangible nature of silver offers investors safety and security. A worldwide market and readily available information empower you to understand your silver investment.

3 Steps To A Silver 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 IRA by rolling over assets from your existing retirement accounts. For example, 401(k), 403(b), TSP, savings or IRA accounts can 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.

FAQs

No. When performed correctly, a rollover or transfer of assets into a Precious Metals IRA takes place with no taxes or penalties.

Types of retirement accounts eligible for rollover or transfer into a Precious Metals IRA include 401(k), 403(b), 457, Pensions and TSP accounts. You can even roll over funds from a Roth retirement account into a Roth Precious Metals IRA, or perform a Roth conversion when rolling over from a 401(k) or similar account into a Roth Precious Metals IRA.

Unlike mutual funds, the fees for your Precious Metals IRA are often charged as one flat fee per year, rather than as a percentage of your assets. That means that the more precious metals you own, the lower your fees are as a percentage of assets; the less precious metals you own, the higher your fees are as a percentage of assets. Ask your Goldco Specialist about current promotions as Goldco may reimburse you for these annual fees.

While your metals are owned by your IRA, they are securely stored in a depository. Once you are eligible to begin taking distributions at age 59 ½, you can choose to take your distributions either as a cash payment or in the form of precious metals.
