What is a gold and silver IRA?
A gold and silver IRA allows you to buy IRS-approved physical gold and silver within a tax-advantaged Individual Retirement Account. Your metals are stored in a highly secure, fully insured depository for safekeeping. Augusta Precious Metals walks you through the few, easy steps required to open the account. But remember, we do not make any investment decisions for you, nor will we or any of our customer service agents provide you with advice tailored to your particular investment and savings needs or plan. We help you go through required forms and help you initiate the simple process to fund your new gold and silver IRA.
What are the benefits of buying gold and silver within an IRA?
Owning tangible, physical, historically inflation-hedging gold and silver can help diversify retirement savings because the value of metals is often uncorrelated with other assets. Buying metals inside of a self-directed IRA allows their value to grow on a tax-deferred or even tax-free (Roth IRA) basis. A gold IRA also makes it possible for investors to make their own purchases and bypass portfolio management fees.
Is the gold in my IRA ever subject to any risks stemming from the financial condition of the depository?
Your precious metals are stored fully allocated and off-balance-sheet at the depository. This means your gold and silver remains entirely separate from assets and liabilities of the depository. In the highly unlikely event a depository declares bankruptcy, creditors would have no claim to your metals.
Can I roll over my current IRA, 401(k) or other retirement savings into a gold IRA?
Yes, you can roll over a portion of funds from your traditional IRA, Roth IRA, 401(k) or 403(b) to your gold and silver IRA. That’s commonly how gold IRAs are funded. Augusta provides you with information and assistance you’ll need to help the rollover process go smoothly and worry-free. You should always consult with a tax and financial advisor before choosing to roll over a portion or all of the funds from your traditional IRA, Roth IRA, 401(k), or 403(b) into your gold and silver IRA.
Is it difficult to liquidate a gold IRA?
Not at all. It’s easy to arrange a full or partial distribution – in either metals or cash – from your gold IRA.
We can withdraw metals on your behalf and wire the cash to your custodian and they will transfer funds to you.
You can request shipment of metals directly to you through your custodian.
You can coordinate with your custodian to pick up the metals at the storage facility for distribution.
Remember, any early IRA distribution may result in taxes and penalties unless rolled over to another qualified account. Consult your tax or investment/retirement advisor before making any withdrawals from a gold IRA.
