How Can I Protect My Retirement Savings from Inflation?
With a sputtering economy, rising consumer prices, and an uncertain future, hard-working folks are rightly worried about whether their savings will be around when it’s time to retire. Many Americans lost large chunks of their savings during the 2008 Credit Crunch and no one wants to see it happen again.
At SchiffGold, we help our clients protect their savings with the enduring value of precious metals. Many investors don’t realize that you can add physical gold and silver coins to an existing or new IRA (Individual Retirement Account) – and it’s easier than you may think.
Our Specialists can guide you through the process of selecting a reputable precious metals IRA custodian, such as Sterling Trust, Kingdom Trust, or Gold Star Trust. Once your account is open, we’ll send you a form to authorize your existing IRA custodian to transfer funds to your new precious metals custodian. This is not a taxable event. We then purchase your gold, silver, platinum, or palladium and ship it to your new custodian depository. The custodian pays Euro Pacific for the purchase. It’s that simple.
Selling the precious metals in your IRA account is just as easy as purchasing them. Give us a call and we’ll lock in your price, transfer the precious metals from your custodian account to ours at no charge, and send your cash distribution to you. Or you can opt to can take physical delivery for your own safe-keeping.
While many financial pundits are talking up economic growth, be wary. As our CEO Peter Schiff reminded us last month, “Don’t catch recovery fever.” The real crash is still ahead of us. Don’t let a lifetime of earnings be washed away. Park them in an account that’s as good as gold.
If you have additional questions or you are ready to add physical precious metals to your IRA, give us a call at 1-888-GOLD-160 (1-888-465-3160). Our Specialists are here to help, not to sell; there’s no pressure and no commitment to buy.
