Advanta IRA ensures all elements of the administration of your account are performed properly and in compliance with Internal Revenue Service rules and regulations.

You are able to focus on the more important task of identifying promising investments to add to your portfolio.
All Advanta IRA offices are independently owned. It is important to contact the correct office that you have been communicating with. Advanta IRA is trademark licensed to these offices. Advanta IRA does not endorse any investment product or give investment advice
We provide security for your self-directed IRA
Securities, mutual funds, and other non-traditional investments are not secured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). However, the FDIC does protect cash deposits in the event of a bank’s failure: up to $250,000 per bank, per account holder, for each different type of account. Advanta IRA uses multiple banks that are insured by the FDIC to protect the undirected cash held within your IRA.
Learn more about the FDIC coverage and its limits at www.fdic.gov.
