SELF DIRECTED IRA PLANS

Self-Directed IRA Plans

Advanta IRA offers ALL of the available types of retirement plans for your self-directed IRA. You can choose a traditional, Roth, SEP and SIMPLE IRA, or an individual 401(k). Education and health savings plans can also be self-directed – allowing you to invest in alternative assets to reach your savings goals.

Which self-directed IRA retirement plan is best for you?

Finding the right plan for you can depend on your situation and/or goals. Let’s take a look at each one:

  • Traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs – the two major kinds of individual retirement accounts and the difference between the two are the time at which they are taxed
  • SEP IRA – plan utilized by self-employed business people
  • SIMPLE IRA – a retirement plan designed for small employers to offer their employees
  • Individual(k) – a profit-sharing plan with a 401(k) option but designed to be less complicated and not as costly as a traditional 401(k)
  • HSA – created to help individuals and families save for qualified medical expenses on a tax-free basis
  • Coverdell ESA  – similar to a Roth IRA, except funds must be used exclusively for paying education expenses for the beneficiary

These plans can certainly hold the traditional stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, but the unlimited options of alternative investments are what attract owners of these accounts. Self-directed IRA alternative investment options include real estate, mortgages and notes, private placements (such as LLCs and trusts), precious metals, foreign currency and futures trading, and other investment options.
