2. E-Sign Account Creation Documents

Once your account paperwork is completed, our fulfillment team will be in touch. You’ll be asked to e-sign your account creation documents. Your IRA will then be opened with our custody partner, and you’ll be able to fund your account. We will handle the creation of your LLC with the secretary of the state of Colorado. 


3. Make a Transfer or Contribution Request

Fund your account by navigating to the transfer request module. You’ll be asked to upload an account statement and provide information regarding the account releasing funds. Once we have all the necessary information, we’ll request the transfer, and your Rocket Dollar account will have money headed its way.


4. Open an LLC Bank Account

We work with our banking partner to provide LLC checking accounts. Our team will reach out to assist you with the process. The entire process is online, fast, and your Rocket Dollar account will be opened within 1 business day.


5. Funding Your LLC Bank Account

When your funds arrive in your new IRA from your previous custodian, we will prepare and send you paperwork to process the funding of the LLC bank account.


6. Invest!

Once your funds reach your new bank account, you can start investing in alternatives like real estate, crypto, private equity and more! In order to keep your account in compliance, please record transactions in the Investment Tracker.

Basic IRA Flow


How long will this take?

2-4 Weeks from zero to funded, from purchasing your Rocket Dollar account until you are deploying your dollars. This included the time to open your account, an LLC, and the biggest possible hold up, is waiting on your rollover retirement dollars to transfer over. The average silver account is about 3 weeks (21 days) with the biggest variance to speed up or slow down the process being the transferring custodian. Some custodians are extremely efficient and accept electronic signatures, other custodians have older processes, heavy signature requirements, or if a rollover is requested with improper information.

If you purchase a Rocket Dollar Gold at checkout, we push to open your account and get it funded in 15 days. This will provide white-glove assistance for transfers as well as prioritized one-on-one time to make sure your account fulfillment is free of issues.
