How to Get Started

Important Factors to Consider

It is important that you understand what you should know, look for, and ask of any potential Self-Directed IRA provider before investing.

Are You a Small Business Owner?

Whether you know it or not, you may be eligible for government-sponsored small business retirement plans such as a Solo 401(k), SEP or SIMPLE IRA. Being an investor could qualify you as self-employed, a sole proprietor or even as your own small business. To see if you qualify, please contact a Senior Account Executive at 855-673-4721.

CHECK ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS
