Frequently Asked Questions About Precious Metals IRAs
Can I roll over funds from my existing retirement account without tax consequences?
Yes. You can transfer funds from your existing IRA (Traditional IRA, Roth IRA, etc.) or 401(k) into your new Precious Metals IRA account and there will be no tax penalty. Don't worry, your IRA Custodian will guide you through the entire process!
I don't currently have a retirement account. Can I start a new one and fund it myself?
Yes. It's easy to open a new Precious Metals IRA account and fund it yourself. BGASC welcomes new investors to call us toll-free at 888-992-4272 for more details.
Which products are IRA Approved?
Also note that all IRA eligible coins, bars and rounds at BGASC.com are marked as "IRA Approved" on each individual product page like this:
Can I put precious metals that I already own into an IRA?
No. To remain in compliance with the IRS, you must open a Precious Metals IRA account first with your chosen IRA Custodian and then you may buy IRA Approved gold, silver, platinum or palladium products that will be shipped directly from BGASC to your designated Depository for secure storage.
How are my precious metals stored?
Depending on your Depository, your metals can be stored either segregated or non-segregated within the secure storage facility. Segregated storage, also referred to as "custody" storage, ensures that the exact coins and bars you purchased will be securely stored separately from other customer's metals. Non-segregated storage allows for precious metals of like kind to be mixed since they are identical with the same weight and purity. Your chosen IRA Custodian will help you select the best Precious Metals Depository to suit your needs and preferences.
How do I access my investments when I'm ready to "cash out"?
One of the great things about Precious Metals IRAs is that when you are ready to access your investments, you can choose to take physical delivery of the metals yourself. If you'd prefer to "cash out" and liquidate your metals, one of your best options is to sell them to BGASC. We offer competitive buy-back prices based on the current market value and your metals will be shipped directly from the Depository to us so you never have to lift a finger.
