What's a Self-Directed Retirement account?

A Self-Directed IRA or Solo 401(k) offers checkbook control of your investments, allowing you to take full control of your retirement savings.


What can (and can't) you do with these accounts?

The list of alternative investments available to you in a self-directed retirement account is vast and includes almost any type of alternative investment you can imagine. That said, we'll cover rules established by the IRS and what to avoid.


What are the benefits of these account types?

Self-directed IRAs, Solo 401(k)s, and SEP-IRA accounts offer all of the tax benefits of investing in a tax-deferred or tax-free (in the case of a Roth) retirement account, regardless of the investments within the account.

The beautiful thing about Rocket Dollar is you can invest in unusual assets (real property, venture capital, private equity) and route it through Rocket Dollar and you’re self-empowered to self-direct those assets.

I could not find another organization that could do this as efficiently and in that price range. They're very responsive and in the way they communicate to me I find helpful, direct, and they put it in terms that I understood.

I chose Rocket Dollar because it was a very simple, streamlined process; very easy to use, well-managed. I didn't have to look at other companies, it just fulfilled what I needed.
