Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) October 05, 2013
With Congress’ failure to fund the US government for the 2014 fiscal year, 800,000 federal employees are indefinitely furloughed without pay, while 1.3 million more “excepted” employees must continue to work indefinitely without pay. And this isn’t the first time. The government has shut down 18 times since 1976, leading government workers to wonder if they will ever have financial security.
Trevor Gerszt, CEO and Managing Director of Heritage Gold Group, believes neither government employees nor other ordinary working Americans should have to suffer because of partisan wrangling in Congress. “These government shutdowns create economic instability that may threaten the retirement security of hard-working Americans,” Gerszt says. “Gold and silver IRAs can act as a hedge against that instability.”
“Americans directly affected by the shutdown may be worried about making changes to their retirement plans in the midst of such uncertainty,” adds Brian Rooke, Vice President of Sales. “But that uncertainty is why now is the time to act. That’s why we’re offering special incentives to government workers and others who decide to invest in gold- or silver-backed retirement accounts.”
Precious metals are widely acknowledged by investors and economists as a hedge or protection against runaway government spending and excessive money printing by the Federal Reserve. For years, the Gold IRA Experts at Heritage Gold Group have helped investors take advantage of little known loopholes in retirement account rules that eliminate fees and taxes when exchanging stocks and bonds for physical metals like gold and silver.
“Retirement savers are often surprised to find out that in most cases these accounts can be opened with no additional investment, by rolling over older retirement accounts that aren’t designed to include physical precious metals,” Gerszt explains.
For a limited time, new, qualified accounts with Heritage Gold Group will receive one or more of the following benefits, based on the amount invested:
- FREE shipping
- FREE account setup for up to three years, for qualifying plans
- FREE 1/10th oz. Proof Gold American Eagle coin and/or 1 oz. Proof Silver Eagle coin
This offer is designed to help government employees; but rather than place the burden on these employees of proving their work status, Heritage Gold Group is offering these incentives to anyone who mentions the government shutdown when they call.
