We’ll then ask that you send the application back to our office either via mail, email or fax. Once we receive it, we’ll have your account set up and ready to fund within 24 hours.
Finally, Gold Alliance will contact your current IRA custodian and organize the tax-free rollover or transfer of your retirement funds to your new IRA account. Once your account is setup, transferring your funds to your new Precious Metals IRA will take a maximum of 5 business days, and once the funds have been wired over to your new account, you’re good to go with investing in precious metals! Then, it’s time to select the right precious metals for your account perfectly fit for your portfolio.
We’ll then wait for you to return your application via fax, mail or email – whatever’s best for you. And we use DocuSign to secure electronic signatures, meaning you don’t have to print anything. If you have a problem at any stage, there’s always a Gold Alliance IRA specialist on hand.
Brink’s also boasts a fully comprehensive insurance policy underwritten by one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious insurance providers, Lloyds of London. So you can be sure of unparalleled safety and security of your precious metals.
B. If you go with the 60-day rollover method, you’ll receive a mailed check to your home address from your current IRA account provider. All you have to do is then mail that check to your new precious metals IRA custodian to be deposited. Do this within 60 days and you won’t incur any taxes or penalties.
If this process appears complicated (and concerning because it relates to your retirement savings!) don’t worry. With your consent, we’ll assign you a dedicated Gold Alliance IRA team member to assist you in choosing the right IRA custodian for you. And that’s not all. They’ll also fill out all the paperwork and make all the necessary calls, so you can reap all the benefits without any of the hassle.
This works out much better than what you pay for 401(k)s and traditional IRAs, where administration, individual service and investment fees are often hidden. With their transparent fee schedule, self-directed precious metals IRAs will give you absolute control over your assets without any extra hidden costs.
We’ll then arrange either for your metals to be safely shipped from Brink’s depository, or liquidated into cash for you. You’ll receive the funds in your chosen account or as a mailed check, it’s your choice! And the whole process takes only one day.
All mints keep a record of coins they produce, so you can track the origin of your coins. Alternatively, we can recommend – or you can look up a coin expert (“numismatist”) who’ll inspect the coins for you, or you can do it yourself by using an acid testing kit. As the owner of your precious metals, you’re free to go directly to the depository which holds your coins whenever you like. They belong to you and are under your name.
Our clients maintain exclusive ownership over all of what we buy for them, whether if they physically receive their purchases, or when they are shipped to a secure depository of their choice – and so their precious metals are never owned by us or recorded on our balance sheets.
