“I have just set up a second self-directed plan with IRA FG. One is a 401(k) plan for my business, the other an IRA for my wife. I have nothing but good things to say. The entire process went smoothly in both cases, I received personal attention throughout, and any questions/queries have been promptly answered, both during the plan creation processes, and subsequently. Special shout out to Susan Glass: She’s awesome!”

Paul Luykx, NJ

“This is to commend the excellent support offered by Jean Scharfman on your team. Despite her clear instructions, I made a mistake that could have cost me severely. When I called to discuss/consult with Jean…I never felt the panic as she quickly jumped into action. She made herself available and made me feel like I was the only client she was working with. She helped me extricate myself from the ditch I had dug myself into. I will be eternally thankful to her for the calm but yet forceful way she managed it.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Individual Retirement Account (IRA)?

An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is the most common type of retirement account.  As of 2018, there are approximately 50 millions IRAs totaling approximately $9.4 trillion dollars.  The most common type of IRAs are Traditional IRA, Roth IRA, SEP IRA, and the SIMPLE IRA.  In 2019, the maximum Traditional IRA and Roth IRA contribution amounts is $6,000 or $7,000 is over the age of 50.  The SEP IRA maximum contribution amount is $56,000 and the SIMPLE IRA maximum contribution amount is $13,000 with a $3,000 catch-up if over the age of 50 for 2019.

In general, if you have income from working for yourself or someone else (earned income), you may establish and contribute to an IRA. For 2019, one may contribute a maximum of $6,000 each year or $7,000 if you will reach the age of 50 by the end of the year. If you are not covered by an employer’s retirement plan, you may take a deduction on your tax return for your contribution. However, if you are covered by an employer’s plan, your IRA may be fully deductible, partly deductible, or not deductible at all depending on how much gross income you have. Contributions to a Traditional IRA are generally tax deductible and subject to the required minimum distribution rules at age 70 1/2.

To permit tax-free transfers of retirement savings from one type of investment to another, as well as to increase the portability of qualified plan rights for employees moving from one job to another, Congress included a complicated web of rollover provisions in ERISA. These provisions cover transfers from one IRA to another, transfers from qualified pension, profit-sharing, stock bonus, and annuity plans to IRAs, and transfers from IRAs to qualified plans. In general, a rollover of retirement funds to an IRA is tax-free.  Rollovers can either be direct or indirect.  A direct rollover can be done without limit, whereas, an indirect rollover can only be done once every 12 months.

Yes. A rollover form one traditional IRA to another Traditional IRA is actually called a transfer and can be done without limit. A transfer occurs between IRAs and a rollover occurs when one of the retirement accounts involved is not an IRA.  For example, moving funds from a 401(k) plan to an IRA is treated as a direct rollover, whereas, moving funds between IRAs is called a transfer.

The privilege of rolling over from IRA to IRA directly can be done as many times as one wishes without any limit.  Whereas, in the case of an indirect rollover, the IRA custodian will transfer the funds directly to the IRA holder.  The IRA holder would have sixty (60) days to re-contribute the funds to an IRA or other retirement plan.  An indirect rollover can only be done once every twelve months for all your IRAs.
