IRA transfers are the transfer of funds from one individual retirement account (IRA) to another such as a brokerage or bank account.
Funding your Self Directed IRA
What you need to know about funding your self directed IRA with an IRA transfer
- An IRA transfer is the most common way to fund a Self Directed IRA. When you are ready to transfer funds, remember, you will not come in contact with the funds to avoid penalties and taxation. A trustee to trustee transfer is not a taxable event. The sooner we receive the required paperwork, the sooner we can initiate the transfer. Once the transfer is initiated, please allow two to three weeks for the funds to arrive to your new Self Directed IRA.
