How do I convert money from either a precious metals IRA or a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA?
100% of people found this answer helpful


Don't worry too much about what's IN the IRA accounts - that doesn't make them fundamentally different for your question. Whether you have stocks, bonds, funds, gold, real estate, or cash in the IRA is irrelevant, because the IRS only really worries about money movement in and out of IRA accounts, not what they are invested in.

Converting an IRA to a ROTH IRA is a relatively simple process, and your advisor or brokerage firm should be able to handle it for you. Essentially, what comes out of the IRA to fund the ROTH will become income to you this year, and you will pay income tax on it as it moves from the traditional, pre-tax IRA into the after-tax ROTH. I would have this discussion with your tax preparer, if you have one, before you do so, to make sure you don't create a significant tax problem because of other income sources you may have.

I have a white paper on the steps and basic rules of IRA Conversion that I've linked for you here

As far as your question about which account to switch, that's honestly just a personal preference.  If you are wanting to reduce your exposure to precious metals (something I would advise that you don't have a signifcant percentage of your savings in, by the way), you might start with that one. I have no idea what's in your other account, but it's important for you, going forward, that you're diversified and not counting on any one asset class to outperform for years and years, despite with the TV pitchmen say. 

Set your portfolio up assuming things will be volatile and the world will have challenges that we can't predict ahead of time. Many of us get guilty of giving ourselves hope or relying on emotions about an investment instead of structuring our money to "just let things happen".  Don't be a contrarian. In my practice, we wouldn't let a client be too deeply invested in any one particular kind of asset because you need less day-to-day market volatility now that you're retired.

All my best! :)
