“The Check Book IRA staff  showed me how to buy physical precious metals, LEGALLY

Physical Metals Are a Form of PROTECTION

  • Protection from a collapse of an OVERPRICED Stock Market
  • Protection from the $19 Trillion Dollar National Debt
  • Protection by having your metals held locally
  • Protection by NOT having your IRA Gold and Silver 1,000 miles away
  • Protection by having the investment flexibility Congress always intended
  • Buy from ANY dealer.  You are not limited in where you buy your metals.

Do you own PAPER or PHYSICAL Metals?

Many think they own precious metals but if you only own the paper then you only own PAPER.

If you do own physical precious metals, are those metals stored halfway across the country?

Don’t be fooled by metals firms offering to set you up, while forcing you to buy the metals from them.  Don’t let someone with a conflict of interest handle your paperwork.  Look to experts.  We have the ONLY legal solution!   In fact we have TWO.

Gold Certificate

In an emergency will your Silver and Gold be a 1,000 miles away?

If your metals are a thousand miles away, what good will it do you in the event of a financial collapse? You can take control of your metals by storing them locally. Even if your current physical metals are stored at your IRA depository, you can move them over to the new IRA LLC and store the metals locally.


Check Book Controlled Solo 401(k)

You can also buy physical metals with your Solo 401k, however you get to be the Trustee of the plan. The approved metals for the 401k are the same as for an IRA. Unlike restrictive IRA rules, precious metals owned and held by our Solo 401(k) may be bullion bars, Maple leafs, Krugerrand’s, Eagles and such. (Read about the Solo 401(k))



Check Book IRA®  LLC

The IRA LLC gives you the ability to purchase physical precious metals from any dealer you wish to work with, and store those metals locally. (Read about the Check Book IRA)

Every question I had Jordan answered.  Everything he suggested went very smoothly… 

I am very satisfied with the process. You can trust what they tell you and that is all that can be asked.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your outstanding help, expertise and professionalism in helping me establish my new Self Directed account.  I was pressed for critical time to meet a settlement deadline for a property investment. To make matters worst, the state in which I had sent my application to register with could not locate my information.

Your solution to immediately file electronically on my behalf saved the day and my settlement occurred without a problem. You came through to do the right things to make it happen and I offer my most sincere thanks and gratitude.

Also, I appreciate your ongoing support.  Again, thank you.”

“My wife and I recently took control of our retirement funds. Even though in the future a reporter interviewing homeless old people under the bridge may ask me what went wrong, I sleep better knowing we are making the decisions that determine our fate.

I know the ”professionals” are much smarter than me but I also know they are using my savings to finance multi-million dollar salaries, jet planes, and six thousand dollar shower curtains. I can’t say if I had access to their money I would not live it up myself!

The staff at Check Book IRA set up the legal structure and guided us through the fund transfer process.I urge you to start early because some of those custodians don’t give up your money easily!

Don’t wait until you find the perfect investment.”

I met Steve Sheppherd on a golf course in 2010.

We talked about his company CheckBook IRA and the idea of a self directed IRA. I was sold immediately.  I had my entire IRA in the stock market but never really felt comfortable there. I just didn’t understand the market or trust it.

My expertise was in real estate.

Steve showed me how I could buy and sell real estate, have rental properties and do hard money loans with my retirement money. He helped me set up my LLC and walked me through the entire process.

Today my IRA has grown substantially and I’m comfortable in what I’m investing.

If you’re on the fence about doing a self directed IRA, contact Steve or Jordan and talk to then.

You won’t find anyone more straight forward or honest.
