                • STRATA's Investment Direction - Private Investments form - This form authorizes STRATA to send funds from the STRATA IRA to the investment issuer once the investment is onboarded. Processing delays can be avoided by ensuring all sections of the form are completed.  
                • Subscription Document - Complete and sign the subscription document provided to you by the Investment Issuer. This may be referred to as the purchase agreement, investment agreement, shareholder agreement, limited partnership agreement, or operating agreement. After this has been signed by the accountholder, STRATA will sign in its capacity as the IRA custodian.

This timeline is approximate, based on if the required documents are received in good order. If transferring from another custodian or rolling over an IRA asset from another institution, STRATA is dependent on the existing service providers' transaction process times.


Gradient LineWhat to Expect After STRATA Processes the Transaction

Once all the documentation has been completed and submitted, your STRATA IRA has been opened and funded, then it will take up to 2-3 business days for us to direct your investment.   

  • The fully executed and accepted subscription document (or other investment confirmation) must be sent to STRATA as soon as possible after the transaction proceeds are received.
  • The investment registration must reflect the following named investment owner:
    STRATA Trust Company, Custodian
    FBO (Accountholder Name) IRA (Account #)
    PO Box 23149, Waco TX 76702
    Tax ID:26-2637994
    STRATA’s Tax ID  should be used in place of the investor’s SSN to retain the tax-exempt status for the IRA investment
