Getting Started: How to Open an Account

Starting a Gold IRA is easy if you work with a trusted leader like American Hartford Gold Group .

There is some simple paperwork, your selection of gold and silver products, and a transfer of funds involved. Your Account Executive can assist with every stage and assure you of your complete understanding of the process as well as privacy and security.

For first-time gold investors or those needing special assistance with their transaction, we highly recommend calling us as early in your decision-making process as you can. No question is too simple or too complicated for us to answer for you.

Not all gold or other precious metals will qualify to go into an IRA and they must meet IRS fineness standards. If you have metals that you want to deposit but they have not been approved, they could be rejected.
