Empowering Your Retirement In Three easy Steps
IRA Advantage arranges the transfer of the desired retirement funds to a new self-directed custodian. This is not an all or nothing proposition. It is possible to transfer all your funds or any portion of them.
1. IRA Advantage establishes a new account with a self-direted IRA custodian. After the account has been opened, the account will be funded by a transfer from your current custodian or simply with a new contribution.
2. IRA Advantage structures a new IRA-LLC of which your IRA is the member. Often the IRA owner is the manager of the new LLC.
3. IRA Advantage opens a new bank account for the IRA-LLC and coordinates the self-directed custodian’s funding of this new checking account. Checkbook Advantage® allows investors to acquire the investment they want, when they want it, doing so by merely writing a check.
