Fund your tomorrow with ease

Invest in your future with these simple ways to fund Discover IRAs.
  • Contributions

    When you contribute funds, you’ll be depositing money that is not presently deposited in any type of retirement account. The IRS imposes annual limits on how much you can contribute. You may want to contact a financial advisor or tax professional for further information.

    Transfer money that is not currently deposited in any type of retirement account directly into our IRAs.
  • Rollovers

    When you rollover funds, you receive the funds through a distribution from your IRA.  You then have 60 days from receipt of those funds to roll them into another IRA or qualified retirement plan to avoid tax consequences. IRA owners are limited to only one IRA-to-IRA rollover in any 12-month period.  Rollovers are not counted toward your annual contribution limits. The above reflects general rollover rules. You may want to contact a financial advisor or tax professional for further information and information specific to your circumstances.

    Move money from other retirement plans or accounts into one of our IRAs with ease.
  • Transfers

    When you transfer an IRA, the funds are moved directly from one financial institution to another. The transfer check is made payable to your financial institution for your benefit. Because you don’t handle the funds directly, the transaction is not considered a distribution. There is no limit to the number of transfers you can make.

    Easily transfer an IRA from another financial institution to one of our IRAs.
