These days, in times of growing economic uncertainty, more and more Americans are beginning to doubt the financial security of their retirement accounts. With fiat money threatening to devalue in the future, investors are looking for ways to diversify their portfolios into something more tangible.
Enter gold IRAs. A gold IRA allows you to transfer any part of your retirement account—from existing IRA accounts to 401Ks from previous employers—into real physical gold. The process is approved by the IRS and is both tax- and hassle-free.
Functioning exactly like the IRA accounts you currently hold, gold IRAs have one distinct difference: instead of holding paper assets, your retirement is now invested in physical gold, either coins or bars, or both. Gold has historically functioned as a hedge against inflation and economic turmoil, so you can rest assured that this investment will be safe, despite which way the capricious market arrows point.
As you continue to work, your gold will be kept in an IRS-approved depository, and upon your retirement, will be released to you to do what you will with it. You can have it shipped to you to store however you desire, or you can sell it for cash at any time. Gold is extremely liquid, so it is an investment that you will not have any trouble turning into currency when needed.
As stated before, any type of retirement plan can be rolled over into a gold IRA. Whether you currently own a Roth, Traditional, SEP or SIMPLE IRA account, all are eligible to be transferred into gold bullion-backed IRA accounts. Others eligible retirement accounts include:
- Pension Plans
- TIAA CREF
- 401K, 403B or 457 Deferred Compensation Plans
- Beneficiary IRA
- Non-Prototype IRA
