Can I make a backdoor Roth IRA contribution to my Unchained IRA?

How to make a backdoor contribution to your Unchained IRA

Yes you can, however we recommend completing the backdoor contribution and conversion process each year using your IRA accounts at your existing IRA custodian, rather than processing the conversion directly through Unchained. This is because it is quicker and cheaper for you to do so (we charge a fee to process backdoor conversions, and legacy IRA providers are usually able to process conversions for free). For instructions on how to execute a backdoor contribution, please check out our blog post "How to make a backdoor contribution to your bitcoin Roth IRA".

If you have questions about backdoor contributions, please consult with your tax advisor, as Unchained cannot give tax advice.
