Fund the Account

To fund your new Self Directed IRA, HSA, or Solo 401k account, you have several options available:

IRA Transfer
  1. Complete the IRA to IRA Transfer Form
  2. Keep in mind that some trustees may require your original signature, and these forms must be mailed to our office.
  3. If your current IRA is invested in stocks, bonds, or mutual funds, contact the trustee to liquidate/sell the holdings, and inform us once this process is complete.
  4. Please note that the transfer process time frame varies with each trustee, so expect it to take 1-3 weeks for funds to arrive.
Previous Employer Plans; 401k, 403b, 457b, 503, TSP Rollover
  1. Contact your 401k administrator. The trustee will only accept instructions from the account owner (you).
  2. Similar to IRA transfers, contact the trustee to liquidate/sell the holdings if they are invested in stocks, bonds, or mutual funds.
  3. The transfer process time frame varies with each company, and funds may take 2-3 weeks to arrive.
  • Ensure you double-check your contribution limit before making a deposit.
  • Then complete the Deposit Form
  • Contribute to your account through one of the following methods:
    • check
    • wire transfer/ach
    • credit card
    • or via PLAID
