How much does Chase charge for IRA?
Chase IRA fees tend to be on the higher end of the brokerage account product line. Their fees include commissions, IRA maintenance fees, and potential advisory fees if you work directly with a financial advisor.
JP Morgan IRAs are administered by J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, which is the brokerage arm of JPM Chase Bank. The bank arm may offer IRA accounts, but you’ll likely miss out on access to investment products like mutual funds, ETFs, stocks, bonds, and other more esoteric securities.
Note that IRA brokerage accounts are not FDIC insured in the same way a cash account might be at a depository institution. Fortunately, most, if not all accounts at JP Morgan Chase offer some form of online investing option, and some even offer managed portfolios.

How do I transfer money from an IRA to a Chase account?
You’ll first need to have a Chase account open to transfer the money into. You’ll request a transfer of funds — beginning with the originating institution — to the Chase account of your choice.
Be sure to have both account numbers handy, and also understand if the transfer has any tax implications. Be careful, though many tax consequences don’t make themselves visible until after the tax year has ended and it’s time to file your tax return.
How do I roll over my IRA account?
First, you’ll need to have another account open to transfer your IRA into. Then, you’ll request a direct transfer from the originating plan administrator to the receiving financial institution. Your rollover should be complete within a matter of weeks, and you’ll be able to start investing your money according to your broader asset allocation.
How much is the minimum deposit for an IRA?
The IRS doesn’t prescribe a particular dollar amount for a minimum deposit to an IRA. You do have to have earned income to be able to contribute to an IRA, and you can’t contribute more than you earned for the year (with an upper limit of $6,500 if you’re under 50; $7,500 if you’re over 50).
There is no minimum or maximum rollover amount, either. Note that deposits and rollovers refer to two different concepts; annual IRA contribution limits only apply to deposit amounts.
Very generally speaking, most people meet the eligibility requirements to open an IRA account.
What is the difference between a rollover IRA and a traditional IRA?
A rollover IRA and a traditional IRA can be one in the same, but they don’t necessarily need to be.
A rollover IRA can also be a traditional IRA: this would just be a traditional IRA that’s been used to receive funds from an old retirement plan. A rollover IRA can also be a Roth IRA or a SEP-IRA, depending on the origin of the funds inside.
A traditional IRA can be a rollover IRA, but it doesn’t need to be. You can have a traditional IRA to which you’ve simply contributed the annual maximum every year but haven’t rolled any money into.
Note that pre-tax traditional IRAs will, like pre-tax 401(k)s, come with Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) in retirement.
