Gold Backed IRA



The image for a precious metals IRA including a gold IRA rollover or silver IRA.

With a gold IRA, you get your retirement out of the stock market and into a tangible asset. Holding physical precious metals in your IRA is a great way to diversify, and help protect your retirement savings from economic uncertainty.


Here at Accuplan Benefits Services, we strive to provide our customers with the IRA industry's best all-in-one precious metals program. We include gold and silver IRAs, with expertise in simplifying a gold IRA rollover, and a silver IRA rollover. Our IRA and storage fees are among the industry's lowest, and provide you with the most flexibility in coin and bullion selection.

Why precious metals?

Adding precious metals to your portfolio is ideal for anyone wanting to diversify outside of paper assets. Keeping your IRA solely invested in stocks and bonds can make you vulnerable to inflation, and to market turmoil. Gold and silver hedge against the lowering of the U.S dollar, since typically, when inflation occurs, gold appreciates. Investors find a safe haven in hard assets like precious metals in times of economic uncertainty. Balance your retirement portfolio by adding gold or silver to your IRA.

Special Note on Fees for a Gold or Silver IRA (1)

The fees below are restricted to precious metals holdings in your IRA. If you wish to hold other asset types in the same IRA, use our regular IRA Fee Schedule, which lists fees for all inclusive IRAs.

Setup Fee: $35
Annual Fee: $150

What About Storage and Fees?

According to IRS rules and laws, an individual who owns precious metal in their self-directed IRAs are not allowed to store the precious metals themselves at home. This is for the safety of your investment, and for the authenticity of the precious metal. Accuplan Benefits Services and American Estate & Trust use Delaware Depository, in Wilmington Delaware for all of our precious metals storage.

Asset Value Of Metals Gold Only Silver Only Both Metals
< $25,000 $8 $10 $10
> $25,000 $12 $18 $18

(1) The above are only the basic fees for precious metals IRAs. And, you must maintain a minimum cash balance to pay two more annual fees or arrange for your fees to be auto charged to a credit card.
