IRA Company Comparison Chart

Because we own our own inventory and we own the depository, our IRA customers get much faster transaction and settlement times. For example, when you purchase metals, we do not have to "ship" the metals. We simply move them from one part of our vault to the other. This reduces time and avoids potential lost package in the mail scenarios.

When you want to sell or take delivery/distribution of your metals, you only need to call us. If you work with another dealer and want to sell your metals, then the dealer will have to call the third party vault to liquidate and setup logistics. This cost customers unnecessary time to receive their funds or their products.

When you work with SD Bullion, it's all under one roof. See the video below to see how it looks under the roof.

Why SD Bullion IRA?

Be Careful Which IRA Company You Work With...

The unregulated physical gold and silver industry has a large number of unscrupulous gold dealers and high ranking kickback affiliate websites that take advantage of unknowing, would be low-price bullion buyers, by marketing and selling them either overpriced proof or exclusive low mintage government issued coins.

Based on Google data alone, our industry’s most expensive search ads are Gold IRA and Silver IRA respectively. Large groups of unscrupulous overpriced coin salesmen simply pay Google a premium to run top ranked IRA Ad campaigns with IRA Kit lead capture boxes to take advantage of unknowing investors out there.

Google Adwords Gold Silver IRA Example

Honest high volume bullion dealers simply cannot afford to pay up to $52 USD per perspective customer click. The only way unscrupulous dealers can afford this is by selling IRA customers products they should not pay for nor buy for their Bullion IRA accounts.

To avoid bad actors, our advice is to stay away from Gold & Silver IRA companies that do the following:

  • Hide product prices online and make you call them to get product prices.
  • Pay their sales people commission to offer you high premium, "collectible" products.
  • Use fear tactics to sell high premium, "collectible" products.
  • Offer "to good to be true" offers to get your contact information.

Can I have more than one Precious Metals IRA?

Yes. There is no limit to the total amount of IRAs you can have, but the annual contribution limits will be the same regardless of the total number of IRAs you have.

Can I rollover a 401K into a Precious Metal IRA?

Yes. Traditional IRAs, Roth IRAs, SEP IRAs, Simple IRA, and Solo IRAs are all eligible for rollover into Precious Metals IRAs.

What type of Bullion IRA's are there?

Traditional IRA - (n) an individual retirement account that allows citizens to put pretax income into investments that can grow tax-deferred with capital gains or dividend income being taxed until it is withdrawn closer to the citizen’s retirement age.

Individual taxpayers with Traditional IRAs can contribute up to a specified maximum dollar amount per year. Contributions to a Traditional IRA may be tax-deductible depending on the taxpayer's income, tax-filing status, and other contributing factors.

Distributions can be taken as early as age 59½. Starting after age 70½, account holders must take required minimum distributions (RMDs) from their traditional IRAs. Funds removed prior to full retirement eligibility incur a 10% penalty and standard income tax rates. There are exceptions to these penalties for certain situations.

Monetary distributions from Traditional IRAs are treated as ordinary income and are subjected to income tax.

Roth IRA - (n) an individual retirement account that allows investors to set aside after-tax income up to a specified amount each year. Both earnings in the Roth IRA account and withdrawals after the age of 59½ are tax-free.

Individual taxpayers with Roth IRAs can contribute up to a specified maximum dollar amount per year. Contributions to a Roth IRA are made with after-tax income.

Roth IRAs do not require any distributions or withdrawals during the owner’s lifetime. Thus if you have enough other income during retirement, you can simply let your Roth IRA continue to grow tax-free throughout your lifetime. This makes Roth IRAs ideal wealth-transfer vehicles to be passed on to loved ones.

Roth IRAs can also be advantageous for any future windfall profit tax scenarios in which bullion holders are possibly scapegoated for having the foresight to prepare for the eventual devaluation of the US dollar and other globally devaluing fiat currencies around the world.

In summation with Traditional IRAs, you can avoid taxes with the capital you put into them.

With Roth IRAs, you can avoid taxes when you take capital out during your retirement age.

Of course, with either type of IRA, you pay no taxes on the growth of your contributed funds within the Traditional or Roth IRA structure, so long as they remain in their respective IRA account and are done in accordance with IRS statutes.

There is also a myriad of unqualified individuals selling home Bullion IRA storage ‘solutions’ using complex LLC structures. We suggest you steer clear of any of these offerings as they have the potential of hurting would be Bullion IRA investors by either disqualifying one’s IRA or even possibly creating tax issues for the investor later on in life.

The IRS has even made a public FAQ regarding this often asked question, and while their discouragement is general in nature, almost all home Bullion IRA storage solutions begin offered will fall woefully short of being IRS approved.
