Once an individual or entity accumulates enough silver or other precious metals that are approved to be held in a Self Directed Roth IRA. One may consider the 60-day RollOver Rule and position themselves to improve their generational wealth standing.
For example, if you need $5,000 to help pay for a down payment, but you won't get paid again until next month, you could withdraw the money from your IRA and use it as a short-term loan and simply replace it once you get paid.
If the down payment is for an investment property and you are interested in getting deferred growth of your assets until distribution through a self-directed IRA.
Than that is a possibility
If you don't follow the 60-day rule to the letter, not only will the funds be subject to income tax, you'll also pay a 10% early withdrawal penalty if you are younger than 59½.
