Adding precious metals to your portfolio is ideal for anyone wanting to diversify outside of traditional 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.
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.
