PeerStreet has made it even easier to invest for retirement! We recently streamlined the account set-up process for opening a self-directed IRA. Now, in just a few simple steps, you can open an SD IRA account and reap the benefits of tax-deferred investing.

Why Invest with an SD IRA?

You have the ability to save for the future, defer taxes until retirement and maintain more control over your investments than a typical IRA, among other advantages.

What Else Do I Need to Know?

  • PeerStreet is reimbursing fees: PeerStreet will cover the initial account set-up fees for any new SD IRA funded with $5,000 or more.
  • We’ve moved the process online: There’s no longer a need to print, sign and scan documents. You can now complete the account set-up process for an SD IRA completely online.
  • There’s still time to contribute for the 2015 tax year: Any contribution made to an SD IRA before April 15, 2016 can be applied to the 2015 tax year. You can contribute up to $5,500 ($6,500 if you are age 50 and over) per tax year to an IRA. While you’re at it, you can invest for the 2016 tax year, too!

In a matter of minutes, you will be able to complete the account set-up forms and be well on your way to saving for the future. You can even go ahead and get started now.
