The Hartford Gold Group’s Gold IRA

Our industry-leading Gold IRA allows you to upgrade your retirement strategy by storing physical gold and silver in a tax-deferred retirement account.

The account acts just like a normal IRA, but better. Precious metals add critical diversification and wealth protection benefits to your retirement assets. Instead of a third party custodian controlling your retirement account somewhere far away, you take the control.

This is a great option for investors who prefer to have their retirement nest egg protected. Call one of our IRA Product Specialists today at 800-462-0071 to go over the simple process. We will assist you with the entire process.

Explore the Benefits of a Gold IRA



Taxes on gains are deferred until metals are withdrawn from account or sold.



Gold and silver have historically acted as critical hedges against rising inflation and the continuing erosion of the value of the U.S. dollar.



Owning physical precious metals inside of your retirement account can help achieve a well-diversified strategy.



A diversified investment strategy can mean less volatility in your overall assets, increasing your sense of financial well-being.



If your retirement plan is over-exposed to typical paper assets such as stocks and bonds, you are taking unnecessary risks with your future. Gold and silver offer critical diversification and wealth protection benefits that every investor should consider.



The Hartford Gold Group is there every step of the way to assist you with the paperwork.

Frequently Asked Questions

Expand All|Collapse All
  • Why should I add gold and silver to my retirement assets?

    Many investment experts recommend that investors add gold and/or silver to their retirement accounts because of the long-established wealth protection benefits that precious metals provide. Gold and silver are "safe haven" assets that fluctuate in an independent manner from other markets such as the S&P 500 or the NASDAQ. If you are over-exposed to "paper" markets, you could be in for a rough, volatile ride at times. If you have only a few years before retirement, a quick stock market drop could leave you with a severely curtailed lifestyle in the future. Physical gold and silver offer a powerful diversifying tool that any investor can use to their benefit and help secure their financial future.
  • What is a Gold IRA?

    Our Gold IRA is an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) that can include IRS-approved physical gold, silver, platinum and palladium. The account enjoys all the same tax-deferment benefits that a traditional IRA provides. The precious metals are held in custody by an IRS-approved custodian for your benefit.
  • How does a Gold IRA Work?

    Our innovative Gold IRA allows you to hold physical precious metals such as bullion coins and bars of gold, silver, platinum and palladium in a tax-deferred account. View our Product Catalog to see the many options we offer. The Hartford Gold Group will walk you through the entire easy process to open the IRA, which can be funded with cash or a rollover of an existing retirement account. There is a long list of products that are IRS-eligible to include, including popular products such as American Gold and Silver Eagles. These precious metals can will be stored in your choice of our recommended secure depositories for you. Our Gold IRA falls under the same exact tax rules as other IRAs. Any contributions to your IRA can be deducted from your federal income taxes -- tax is only due upon withdrawal. As with other IRAs, the gold and silver you buy and hold cannot be withdrawn from the account until you reach the age of 59 1/2 years old, or you will have to pay taxes on your withdrawal as well as a 10 percent penalty for the early withdrawal. You must also begin making mandatory minimum withdrawals at age 70 1/2 (and pay taxes on those withdrawals) as with any other IRA. If your Gold IRA is set up as a Roth account, you can make tax-free withdrawals anytime because you were already taxed on the contributions. You also will not have to start withdrawing money out at age 70 ½.
  • Do my retirement funds stay tax-deferred with my Gold IRA?

    Yes. Our Gold IRA has the same tax-deferment benefits as any other IRA. Note that this also means that the same limitations on early withdrawal will apply. We recommend that you consult with a tax attorney or accountant to learn how this might apply to your specific circumstances.
  • Can I store my IRA Precious Metals at home?

    The Hartford Gold Group does not recommend storing your metals at home for precious metals IRA’s in compliance with Internal Revenue Code Sections: 408(m)(3)(B) and (n). We recommend any depository such as Brinks/DDSC that handles precious metals for IRA’s.
  • What kind of retirement accounts can I roll over into a Gold IRA?

    All types of retirement accounts are eligible for conversion to a Gold IRA. Traditional IRAs, ROTH IRAs, SEPs, SIMPLEs, 401ks, 403bs, 457s, TSPs and annuities are all eligible to rollover.
  • What kind of precious metals are allowed with a Gold IRA?

    Many popular gold and silver coins and bars are allowed in our Gold IRA. American Gold Eagles and Silver Eagles are common choices, but there are many others. Visit our Product Catalog to see the many options.
  • What costs are involved with the Gold IRA?

    The Hartford Gold Group offers investors many advantages over other precious metals IRAs, including NO setup fees or transfer fees. We also offer free storage of your gold and silver for up to three years. Call one of our Account Executives today for full details.
