Transfer / Rollover Forms
• A “Rollover Form” is needed to properly document and accept funds when an IRA holder is moving from a qualified plan (i.e. 401(k), 403(b), 457 etc.) into an IRA. Rollovers are initiated by the account holder. When initiating a rollover, the client will need to contact their qualified plan administrator for further direction.
• A “Transfer Form” is needed when a client needs to transfer from their current custodians IRA into a like IRA account at Quest IRA, Inc. (i.e. Traditional IRA to Traditional IRA).
Transfers are initiated by the receiving custodian, therefore if you are transferring to Quest, we assist with initiating the movement of funds, and when transferring out of Quest IRA, you would work with the custodian that will receive the IRA funds.

NOTE: Your current custodian might require a medallion stamp guarantee and/or the original Transfer Form.

Congratulations on deciding to purchase an asset with your Quest IRA. The following packets contain instructions and the documents required for purchasing an asset. When filling out the paperwork, make sure you are using the appropriate forms, depending on your investment.

Payment Authorization Forms
A Payment Authorization Letter, commonly referred to as a “PAL,” at Quest IRA, is a form that allows permission to make a payment from the client’s account. This is commonly used to pay for expenses such as property taxes, HOA dues, utilities, etc.

Verification of Payoff & Sell Direction Letters
The Direction to Sell forms aid in the process of selling an asset, similar to the function of a Direction of Investment in purchasing an asset. The form requires information such as: general personal information, how you would like to pay fees, and asset information. There are different forms dependent on the type of investment, so make sure to double-check you have completed the correct form before turning it in to the Transactions Department at Quest IRA.

Distribution Forms
