Protecting Your Retirement with Gold & Silver

Precious metals like gold and silver should be part of any truly diversified portfolio. By placing a portion of your retirement savings into a Precious Metals IRA, you are adding diversity that can help to protect against market and currency crashes. Even better, a Precious Metals IRA allows you to buy and store real gold and silver with pre-tax money.

Conventional IRAs vs precious metals IRAs

A conventional IRA is generally used to hold stocks, bonds, mutual funds and cash. A Precious Metals IRA has a different purpose. It is a self-directed retirement account that holds physical gold and silver. The metals held within a Precious Metals IRA are insured, so your assets are always protected against theft. Plus, just as you can easily buy and sell stocks within a retirement account, you can convert holdings in your Precious Metals IRA into cash if needed.

What are the benefits of a Precious Metals IRA?
Diversify your retirement savings
This is worth repeating: don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Diversification will help to safeguard your savings.
Limited supplies could result in future gains
Precious metals are finite; that’s what makes them precious. And as silver and gold continue to be used in medical and industrial sectors, there will be sustained demand for them.
Secure your purchasing power
Long-time buyers of gold and silver have seen their holdings maintain their purchasing power. As the U.S. dollar declines, the value of precious metals usually goes up.
Why can’t you hold precious metals in your existing IRA?
Conventional IRAs are not designed to hold physical assets like gold and silver. In order to place precious metals in a tax-advantaged retirement account, you will need to open an account with a qualified custodian to manage your Precious Metals IRA.

Which retirement accounts can be converted to a Precious Metals IRA?

How To Open A Precious Metals IRA

Your Precious Metals Specialist will help you prepare the paperwork needed to move your retirement account into a Precious Metals IRA, without any tax implications or penalties. This involves three steps:

YOUR FUNDS ARE TRANSFERRED TO YOUR NEW CUSTODIAN

Your Specialist will assist you with the process of transferring your funds from your current custodian to one that can facilitate a Precious Metals IRA. We frequently work with STRATA Trust Company and Kingdom Trust, both of whom maintain A+ ratings with the Better Business Bureau, but we will work with any custodian that you’d like.

BIRCH GOLD GROUP HELPS YOU CHOOSE YOUR METALS

You have a variety of options for the precious metals that you will place in your IRA account; your Specialist can explain them in detail. Once you have selected and purchased your metals, they will be secured on your behalf at a depository.

YOUR METALS ARE STORED AT AN APPROVED DEPOSITORY

You have several options for where to store your metals. One is the Delaware Depository, the largest precious metals depository outside of New York, with locations in both Wilmington, Delaware and Seal Beach, California. There, your metals are insured up to $1 billion. You can also store your metals in Los Angeles or Salt Lake City with Brink’s, the largest non-bank, non-government holder of precious metals in the world.
