IRA FAQs

What do I need to know about this IRA account?

  • At WIF we do not directly offer IRA accounts.
  • However, WIF partners with Gold Star Trust Company and Gold Star Trust Company does offer IRA accounts.
  • Gold Star Trust Company offers a self-directed option for you to place your IRA funds in a Savings account with WIF.
  • So your IRA account would be with Gold Star Trust Company and then you can self- direct your funds to be invested with WIF.
