In the beginning of 2008, Leonard Meyer had over $600,000 in his retirement accounts, more than enough to live well for the duration of his Golden Years.
Then, he lost $98,000 — in one day.
Over six months of 2008, in the wake of the Global Recession manufactured by Wall Street, Meyer lost $400,000 of his retirement nest egg. And yet, today Meyer is doing fine — his portfolio is up 200% over the last four years!
How did he do it?
With 1 Free Guide that contained what Meyer calls a "secret IRS loophole."
But it's not really a loophole — that implies a mistake in the tax code, or a intentionally broken law designed to allow the wealthy to dodge their tax responsibilities. Meyer's talking about the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997, and its tax exemptions for retirement accounts. Exemptions that are perfectly legal public knowledge — but the IRS doesn't publicize them, because they don't want you to use them.
"This isn't something my financial advisor told me about, I had to hear about it from a friend at my church," Meyer says. "My financial advisor never told me, because he wouldn't make any money off of it."
So what did Meyer do that protected his retirement assets from the market crash, the Great Recession, and inflation? He rolled over a portion of his assets into a precious metals IRA.
Throughout recorded history, precious metals like gold and silver have served as a "safe haven" investment, protecting assets in times of war, strife, and economic upheaval. While inflation, and money printing by the Fed, devalue our fiat currency, gold and silver retain their value — and gain value.
Because of the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997, you can roll over a portion of your existing IRA assets into a gold or silver IRA, without penalties. That's the loophole. And that's how Meyer saved himself, and his wife, from a retirement in poverty.
"I made my arrangements through Goldco Precious Metals," Meyer says. "I researched all the major precious metals IRA firms online, and spoke to a number of representatives. Peter White at Heritage was the one who could answer all my questions — and he didn't try to push me into anything. He was never in a hurry, and took the time to understand the details of my financial situation before we did anything."
