December 29, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Provider of IRA and 401(k) and IRAs, issues a friendly reminder to clients who may want to contribute money to retirement funds for 2012 and 2013. For retirement investors who may not have contributed to their retirement accounts for 2012 and those who are thinking of contributing in 2013, Silverstone offers a friendly reminder. For eligible earners and those who may not have contributed yet for 2012, keep in mind you can contribute up to $5,000 for 2012 as long as it is done before April 15, 2013. Additionally, another $5,000 may be contributed by eligible earners on or after January 1, 2013. The combined total of what many IRA holders can contribute in the next couple of months can be up to $10,000. Silverstone IRA consultants offer a friendly reminder to individuals looking to contribute to traditional, Roth and self-directed IRAs.

As company Silverstone prides itself on being up-to-date on all things relating to retirement accounts, including advising individuals and businesses on setting-up and managing small business 401(k)s and individual retirement accounts. "Newer options now exist allowing IRA investors to get more leverage from their IRA," says Troy Jenkins, Silverstone's VP of Marketing. "We can talk all day long about contributing to your IRA, but if you're completely limited in the forms of investments you can contribute to, then it limits potential gains that could have been obtained."

Consequently, Silverstone generally advises savvy of IRA investors to set-up and contribute to a self-directed plan. Contributions can then be used to invest in more controlled assets such as private company stock, real estate, precious metals and tax liens. "It's an excellent way to diversify one's portfolio into investments which IRA holders may find more familiar and much more lucrative," says Jenkins. "In a sluggish market, everyone chases returns and oftentimes the public markets offer less opportunity than investment close to home. We give investors greater control over individual retirement investing—period."

While certain transactions within one's IRA remain off-limits, the Silverstone self-directed retirement account expands the investment capabilities for individuals seeking higher returns and greater control over retirement funds. With greater control and the ability to write checks for investments directly from the IRA or 401(k), investors can better leverage tacit knowledge to grow retirement funds in a tax sheltered or after-tax account. "We're offering this as a friendly reminder to clients and potential clients that the time if fast approaching for making contributions to one's retirement account," reminds Jenkins.
