What Is An IRA Rollover?
A Gold IRA rollover is if you decide to cash in your current IRA, your custodian will then send you a check for the total amount of funds in your IRA account, you will then be given 60 days to rollover to a new IRA. During this 60-day period, you must use the funds to set up a new IRA. If you exceed the 60 day rollover period, you will be liable to pay taxes and penalties on the funds withdrawn. Unfortunately, this is US federal law and the fines imposed can be heavy.
Can I Transfer Into A Gold IRA Rollover?
Yes, IRA’s can be transferred to from one custodian to another. This is the preferred method as oppose going through with a Gold IRA rollover. Your current custodian will transfer the funds in to your new IRA account via your new custodian. The advantage this has over the rollover option is you don’t have to worry about the 60 day period as this will not apply to you.
The transfer from one IRA to you new IRA is quite seamless and simple.
Ask your current custodian for the transfer paperwork. Fill out the forms, sign it, and return it to your current custodian. The custodian then transfers the funds in the IRA directly to us as your new custodian. We will then use those funds to purchase gold or silver. Please Note: The check from the current custodian must be the same exact name of the trustee or custodian of the new Gold IRA account which will receives the new funds.
With both Gold IRA Rollover and transferred IRA’s you do not need to transfer the whole plan. Partial withdrawals or transfers are permitted, which is also a great way to invest your IRA in silver, gold, palladium.
There are no penalties or taxes to pay when you transfer a Traditional IRA to a Self Directed IRA.
