The gold IRA application process can be completed quickly, taking only 10 to 15 minutes. Processing is fast, too, and your account can be opened in just a single business day in most cases.
From there, the rest depends on the speed of your funding. As long as your existing account custodian is quick to respond, transfers and rollovers typically take about seven to 10 business days. Funding your account with a mailed physical check may take longer.
Again, these timelines can vary by IRA company, so make sure to ask the firm you’re considering for estimates specific to their accounts and processes.
