Direct Register Shares from IRA

In Kind Distribution

Tell your broker you want a distribution in kind to an individual brokerage account. This means the broker will move the number of shares you own out of the IRA account, into an individual account without selling any shares. It is still considered a distribution, so taxes or a penalty may apply depending on your age and what kind of IRA it is. The broker will provide you with necessary forms and move shares to the new account (or your existing individual account). Once the shares are there, proceed with instructions here.
