Step 3 – Choose a precious metals dealer and make the order. Instruct your dealer that you are purchasing the metals with funds from your IRA with IRA Express.

Step 4 – Fill out a Buy Direction Letter for Precious Metals and a Depository Election Form and send them to IRA Express.

Step 5 – Instruct the precious metals dealer to send the invoice to IRA Express and confirm the metals will be delivered to the depository.

Step 6 – IRA Express submits payment to the dealer from your IRA funds and sets-up a sub account in your name with the depository. The metals are then delivered to the depository.

Please Note:  IRA Express will work with any precious metals dealer of your choosing. In any self-directed IRA transaction it is extremely important to do your due diligence. Precious metals transactions are no different. Please perform your due diligence and thoroughly research the precious metals dealer you have chosen to work with.
