Many of us are unable to truly enjoy them! Why you ask? Because the main reason for this is that we are always thinking in the back of our mind about our “nest egg” and retirement accounts!
We aren’t supposed to be worrying about the US National Debt ceiling, the stock market or anything else that could possibly derail our Your Golden Retirement! During these years, our investments are to be stable and not speculative! We had our entire life, 47 years to speculate with our earnings (18-65 yrs old) and now that we’re in our Your Golden Retirement, the smart investment is a secure investment, something stable, something solid, and definitely something you can “touch” and that’s what Precious Metals IRA does for you.
What is a Gold IRA?
A Gold IRA is an IRS-approved retirement account that functions in the same way as any regular IRA. Unlike conventional retirement accounts such as IRA and 401(k) accounts that limit your options in standard paper-based assets such stocks, mutual funds and bonds, a Gold IRA allows you the added benefit of investing in physical Gold coins and bars and other IRS approved silver, platinum and palladium metals.
Benefits of a Gold IRA
By investing in a Gold IRA, you will diversify your retirement portfolio on a tax-deferred basis and maintain the tax preferential treatment. This means that transferring or rolling over a portion of your existing IRA account into a Gold IRA will not trigger any tax implications. Also, by opening a Gold IRA you can take advantage of an annual contribution of $6,000 if you are below 50 years old and $7,000 if you are above 50 years old. Allegiance Gold can help you navigate regulatory requirements, avoid tax pitfalls, and diversify with physical precious metals to stabilize your retirement portfolio.
The following are the top three main reasons why financial experts advise to invest in a Gold IRA:
Gold is a store of wealth and has a long history of achieving that purpose. Historical data shows that gold climbs in value through the years, even when economic times are tough, making it a valued addition to any well-rounded retirement portfolio. Financial experts use gold and precious metals as a hedge against inflation and deflation, dollar devaluation, and evolving negative economic and political environment.
Taking back control of your retirement savings is made easy. By opening a self-directed IRA with Allegiance Gold, you will be empowered to make your own investment decisions and choose IRS approved coins, bullion, and bars to invest in and carry the weight and security of real tangible assets.
Whether you’re looking to move existing employer-sponsored 401(k) accounts to more secure options or rollover portion of your existing traditional, Roth, or other types of IRA accounts into a Gold IRA, Allegiance Gold can help you navigate regulatory requirements, avoid tax pitfalls and diversify with physical precious metals that can help stabilize your retirement portfolio.

This is a retirement plan that an employer or self-employed individual can establish for themselves and their employees. Contributions are tax deductible – very similar in nature to Traditional IRA. Individuals must be the owner of the business/President/CEO/self-employed in order to establish a SEP IRA. SEP IRA’s can be transferred/rolled over into a Traditional IRA or a new SEP IRA. In a SEP IRA you are allowed to contribute up to 25% of your income, up to $55,000 per year.
This is an employer-sponsored retirement plan for a “for profit” company. 401(k)s are the most common kind of defined contribution retirement plan. These plans can generally only be rolled over if the individual is over 59 ½ years old or separated from service (no longer working for employer)
If you’re an employee of a city, county, township, park board, water district or similar entity, your employer may offer a tax-exempt savings benefit known as a government 457(b) deferred compensation plan. This retirement program allows employees to make pre-tax salary deferrals. An advantage of the 457(b) plan is that it is not subject to the IRS age 59 ½ rule and there is no 10% penalty for withdrawing your funds before that age, although the withdrawal is subject to ordinary income taxation.
Commonly found in many 403b plans, tax sheltered annuities allow an employee to make contributions from his or her income into a retirement plan. The contributions are deducted from the employee’s income and, as a result, the contributions and related benefits are not taxed until the employee withdraws them from the plan. Because the employer can also make direct contributions to the plan, the employee gains the benefit of having additional tax-free funds accruing.
This Retirement plan is for Federal government employees. Employees are either “civilian” or “uniformed.” Must be either 59 ½ years old and/or separated from service from Federal Government in order to rollover funds. TSP has their own set of forms to be used for any rollovers.
