A self-directed IRA is a great way to boost your retirement savings. Investing in in real estate, mortgage notes, or private placements can require significant capital, however. As such, most investors start a self-directed IRA or Solo 401(k) with a rollover from a prior plan.

- Can I move my IRA funds?
- Are my funds compatible?
- Are there any IRA specific considerations?
- What are the Solo 401(k) specific considerations?
