2. Start a transfer request.

To start a transfer request, you’ll be asked a few key questions. Please make sure you have this information ready for the account you want to transfer to:

  • Name of custodian = AltoIRA
  • Account number (destination account)
  • Account type (destination account)
    Note: If this is for a Roth conversion, please email

Last, you’ll be asked how much cash you’d like to transfer.

Pro Tip: For your transfer request to be completed quickly, be sure to double check that the information provided for the account you want to transfer to is completely accurate. Any incorrect information will delay the request.

Note for CryptoIRAs: To transfer cash to a different Alto account, you may need to sell applicable cryptocurrencies and then transfer the funds from your crypto wallet to your IRA cash balance. For a quick step-by-step guide on how to do this, click here.
