Self-directed Precious Metals Individual Retirement Account

A self-directed Precious Metals Individual Retirement Account (IRA) allows individuals to diversify their retirement portfolios by including precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum, and palladium.

What if you decide you want to change the makeup of your Precious Metals IRA?

Perhaps you want to increase the percentage of silver or change the overall makeup of gold coins in your Precious Metals IRA. Thankfully that process is simple. However, keep in mind that you will be paying for shipping costs when you go through this process, so it isn’t something you’ll want to undertake regularly.

First, ensure you have enough funds in your IRA to cover shipping costs. After you do this, contact the U.S. Gold Bureau

The next step is to sign the Authorization Change Form and send it to Self Directed IRA Services, Inc. This form makes it so that the U.S. Gold Bureau is able to exchange your funds for precious metals without you needing to sign individual invoices each time.

What Is Self-directed Precious Metals (IRA)?

A precious metal individual retirement account that allows investors to invest in actual gold, silver, platinum, and palladium bullion or coins. As an investor, you are not restricted to using mutual funds, equities, and bonds when you have a self-directed precious metal or gold IRA. As a result, you have more control over your investments and can diversify your portfolio by adding physical assets.

With a self-directed IRA, you can leave and take back control of your financial decisions. At U.S. Gold Bureau, we recommend a precious metal IRA because it provides our clients with top-notch investment protection.

Why Precious Metal IRA?

Precious metals are a reliable defense against inflation or any future financial unrest. You can purchase gold, silver, platinum, or palladium and account for them in your retirement savings through precious metals IRAs. Tax benefits are one of the key benefits of a precious metals IRA, as the investor can reduce tax burdens.

Purchasing Precious Metals Through the U.S. Gold Bureau

We provide our clients with comprehensive precious metals IRA knowledge. Our position is to assist retirement savers in avoiding difficulties, mistakes, high prices fees, and IRA schemes.

When you speak with a representative at the U.S. Gold Bureau, let them know what you want to change. Again, you will first want to familiarize yourself with the restrictions on what can go into your Precious Metals IRA. Then you can tell the U.S. Gold Bureau which coins, including the year and ounce, to send to Self Directed IRA Services, Inc. and which coins—again including the year and ounce—you want sent to the U.S. Gold Bureau from your existing Precious Metals IRA.

You will receive an exchange invoice from the U. S. Gold Bureau, which you’ll then want to sign and send to Self Directed IRA Services, Inc. They’ll ship the precious metals they were storing for you to be exchanged by the U.S. Gold Bureau, who will ship your new choices back.

That’s all there is to the process. If you have any questions, please contact us and speak with an IRA Specialist. You can call our IRA Hotline at 844-522-0252.
