Using An IRA As Loan Collateral
by Andy Zavoina, BOL Guru

Question: Can an IRA be used as collateral for a loan?

Answer: IRA's receive special treatment from the IRS because the customer does not have use of those funds. If they can pledge them as collateral, they'd effectively have use.

So, no, you can't.
