Welcome to the nation’s premier self-directed IRA administrator.

Advanta IRA is a self-directed retirement plan administrator serving clients nationwide. We provide our clients exceptional personal service, experience, and knowledge that is paramount in administrating self-directed IRAs.

Advanta IRA ensures all elements of the administration of your account are performed properly and in compliance with Internal Revenue Service rules and regulations. We file reports on your behalf, issue statements and help you follow contribution limits and permissible transaction guidelines. You are able to focus on the more important task of identifying promising investments to add to your portfolio.

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.
