1. Establish a Self-Directed IRA

The first step to investing tax-deferred dollars in physical precious metals is to set up a valid self-directed IRA. At SBC, you work directly with a personal IRA liaison who will simplify the application process and ensure you submit all required information. This initial setup process is vital to avoid any delays or tax penalties. We’ll help you remain within the good graces of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by following all necessary regulations.

Once the paperwork is completed, SBC will send it directly to the chosen trust company on your behalf.
