IRA Account Setup and Funding – Kingdom Trust Co.
The IRA Piece of your Self-Directed Checkbook IRA
As part of establishing your Checkbook IRA, it is necessary to setup an IRA account with Kingdom Trust Co. and fund that account via some combination of rollovers, transfers, or new IRA contributions. This IRA will then be invested into the LLC or Trust created by our team at Safeguard Advisors.
While we are not directly involved in the IRA process, we are here to assist you as you navigate these IRA related steps of establishing your plan.
You are welcome to schedule an appointment for assistance completing the IRA application.
Following are resources to guide you through the IRA account setup and funding process.
You can choose to complete the application online or with a PDF/paper version offline.
The online application process is recommended, as it is faster and less expensive. The online application cost is $25.
The PDF application can be submitted by scan/upload, fax, or mail/courier service. It generally takes KTC 1-3 business days from receipt of paperwork to setup the account. The paper application cost is $60.
