Mid-Ohio Securities waved their $50.00 application fee for the self-directed ROTH IRAs if we got the paperwork to them by 4/16 (today).

My 4 apps. were next-day aired at the end of last week.

My bank tried to wire my money to them ($100/application to open the account) but account numbers have not yet been assigned?

Anyone else have this problem?

Our ‘rep’ (Rich D.) is still out of the office.

It feels like a Catch-22 situation

Thanx. Susan

I have posted here a few times about my excellent experience with Entrust Administration.

Their rep spoke at our investor club meeting in February and, within less than a month, I had three or four houses in a Roth IRA with them. I have # 5 under contract to go into the IRA.

All of these are rehabs, so they each have multiple transactions (i.e., contractor payments, etc.) after the purchase. My title company raves about their service and I can count on them mailing a check within 24 hours after I fax them a request.

I haven’t used Mid-Ohio, but I can tell you that when I researched IRA administrators, the folks at Entrust were much more knowledgeable. Also, I had to leave multiple messages with Mid-Ohio to get a callback.
