Don’t rely on the government, or anyone else, to take care of your hard-earned retirement savings for you.

Thanks to a little-known law, you can now put gold or silver into your IRA or 401k account to own physical precious metals in coin or bar form. You’ll never have to wonder if your retirement fund is secure because YOU have all the control. There’s no hassle to access it, no password to remember, and no wondering if it’s really there when you need it most.

Top Questions Asked about a Precious Metals IRA:


Is a Precious Metals IRA Legal?
Yes, it is completely legal to buy and sell Gold, Silver, Platinum, and Palladium within an IRA account, as long as you do it the right way – and we can show you how.

Is this IRA backed with real Gold and or Silver?
It's not just "backed" by real metal, it IS real metal. With our Precious Metals IRAs, you will own physical gold and silver coins and bars that you can hold in your hand, not just read about in a monthly account statement.

What is the Precious Metals IRA process and how long does it take?
During the rollover process, we will work directly with you to set up an account and transfer funds from an existing IRA. We can also help you set up a brand new account. Depending on your current custodian, the process can take as little as 10 days.

Are there risks in owning precious metals in my IRA?
Yes, all investments involve risk and precious metals are no exception. As with all investments there is risk and the past performance of a particular asset class does not guarantee any future performance. The United States Gold Bureau, its principals and representatives, do not guarantee to clients that they will realize a profit or guarantee that losses may not be incurred as a result of acquiring precious metals or following its precious metal recommendations.

Can I rollover an existing account into my Precious Metals IRA?
Yes, you can roll over assets from an existing IRA or a previous employer's 401K, or in some circumstances a portion of your current employer's 401K. Your specialist will be able to provide guidance for your specific situation.

How do I setup a Precious Metals IRA?
Please talk with an Account Executive from our dedicated Retirement Services Division. They will walk you through the whole process and in most cases can fill out the application with you while you both are on the phone. We make it easy – and ensure that there are no unnecessary penalties or fees.

Why hasn't my regular financial advisor told me about all this?
Your advisor will mostly offer investment services that they can control, which is understandable, but traditional advisors can't work with physical precious metals. We are not here to replace your advisor; we are here to protect and preserve your purchasing power. In fact, we can work hand-in-hand with your financial advisor, since we both have the same concern – the security of your long-term investments.

When is a good time to invest in a Precious Metals IRA?
The decision to invest in precious metals depends on your specific circumstances and is a personal decision. Many of our clients enjoy the benefits of diversification within their overall IRA account by having an appropriate allocation to physical metals.
