Your account is the "lender", but you pull the strings. You decide who can borrow your tax-advantaged retirement dollars, how much interest they'll pay, and for how long the loan will last. You can even secure the note and collect payments on behalf of your account, though any payments you personally accept must be forwarded to New Direction Trust Company for deposit.
The IRS prohibits "sweetheart" loans in an IRA. Debt investments must represent genuine economic transactions (no 0% interest rates) and your borrowers must make at least one payment per year.
