What is a gold IRA rollover?

A gold IRA rollover is when you decide to move a retirement account over to a self directed IRA that holds precious metals. You can rollover your accounts to a gold IRA that can hold gold, silver, platinum or palladium coins and bullion. You can rollover a 401k, 403b, 457b, or TSP into a self-directed IRA that holds IRA approved metals. You can also transfer your assets from a traditional IRA or a Roth IRA to a self-directed IRA that will hold your precious metals.

There are two different types of rollovers. A direct rollover is when your existing provider makes a direct transfer of your proceeds to the custodian for your gold IRA, or when they send you a check that is payable to the new custodian of the self directed IRA. The other type of rollover is an indirect rollover where your existing provider will send you a check to deposit into your bank account. You will then need to re-deposit the funds that were added to your bank account into your new IRA within 60 days or you will incur a 10% IRS penalty.
