Gold IRA Helps Protect Retirement Money 

Self-directed retirement portfolios invested in gold are ideal for anyone wanting to diversify outside of traditional paper assets. However, keeping a retirement portfolio solely invested in stocks and bonds makes retirement savings more vulnerable to inflation and market turmoil.  

A gold IRA rollover is a great way to help protect retirement money. Gold and silver hedge against the lowering of the U.S dollar, since typically, when inflation occurs, gold appreciates. Savvy investors can find a haven in hard assets like precious metals in times of economic uncertainty.  

Help balance your retirement portfolio today by creating a precious metals IRA account.

Storing Metals and Associated Fees 

Accuplan has some of the lowest fees in the industry. We pride ourselves on making precious metals investments quick, painless, and easy to manage.  

According to IRS rules, individuals who own precious metals in their self-directed IRAs cannot store the precious metals themselves at home. As a result, self-storage is not possible as it would be considered a distribution from your IRA. In addition, distributions before retirement age, even in precious metals, would result in tax penalties.  

Accuplan Benefits Services utilizes Delaware Depository in Wilmington, Delaware, for all our precious metals storage.
