Types of Service Fees

Our IRA management fee schedule varies based on investment type, but essentially there are three types of service fees: Administrative and Maintenance, Transactional, and Account Closure.

Account Administration and Maintenance

To custody retirement account assets and maintain their tax-advantaged benefits, the asset must be held by an authorized custodian or trustee according to IRS Publication 590A, and Internal Revenue Code Section 408. The Account Establishment and Administrative and Maintenance fees cover:
