Fee Schedule
Below is the fee schedule for accounts at Quest Trust Company. The fee schedule is one of the four components required to open a self-directed account with Quest Trust Company, but can also be used to change fee or payment options at a later date. The Fee schedules are included in the respective Account Opening Starter Kits.

Transfer or Rollover Funds

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 Trust Company, 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 Trust Company, you would work with the custodian that will receive the IRA funds.

    • An IRA-HSA Transfer Form is needed when a client needs to transfer a current IRA elsewhere into a Health Savings Account at Quest Trust Company. Please note that this specific type of transfer can only be done one in your lifetime up to the contribution limit. 

    In-Kind Transfer Form

      ” is different from a normal Transfer Form. Whereas the Transfer form is needed when only moving cash, the Inkind Transfer Form is needed when a client needs to transfer an asset from their current custodian’s IRA into a like IRA account at Quest Trust Company, Inc. (i.e. Traditional IRA to Traditional IRA). Transfers are initiated by the receiving custodian, but there will most likely be other steps the client will have to take when planning to move the ownership from one IRA custodian to another, i.e. reregistration of an asset. Therefore, if you are transferring to Quest, we assist with initiating the movement of any assets (and funds, if needed), and when transferring assets out of Quest Trust Company, you would work with the custodian that will receive the IRA funds.
