Folks with traditional IRAs need to start looking at “Freedom IRA”s in order to take a more active hand in their own retirement money.
If you leave it where it is, they WILL steal it through inflation or outright appropriate it.
I have self directed an IRA to loan my retirement funds to a charitable Christian group. The management companies have in just the past two years doubled the yearly fees and are extorting us to death. Charging every new conceivable fee like a paper statement charge of $30/year. Sterling Trust out of Texas is scum.
