Did you know cash or check contributions can help fund your Self-Directed IRA? Making contributions to your IRA may be something you do not think about very often. A strategy some people use to make sure they save is by making recurring contributions to their IRA per paycheck. Contribute annually up to the maximum amount allowed by the IRS.

    • Please include your account number and reference the year of the contribution on your check
  • Wire or ACH your funds
    • Contact our Client Services Department at 1-800-392-9653 for delivery instructions to wire or ACH your funds


Step 3: Complete and include a Deposit Coupon Form with your check(s)

  • In order to fund your account with a contribution, you must complete and include a Deposit Coupon. 

Once we have received your funds, you will be notified by email and your funds will be available in your account. If you have not heard from us within 7-10 business days, please contact us for an update on your account.
