What is retirement planning for physicians?

Retirement planning for physicians involves creating a comprehensive strategy that addresses the unique financial challenges faced by medical professionals, including managing student loan debt, maximizing retirement savings, and ensuring financial security.

Why is it important to consult with a financial advisor for retirement planning?

A financial advisor provides personalized advice and strategies that align with your financial goals and professional journey. They help optimize your contributions to tax-advantaged accounts, manage investment risk, and ensure your retirement plan is comprehensive and unbiased.

What are the benefits of a Roth IRA for physicians?

A Roth IRA offers tax-free growth and tax-free qualified withdrawals in retirement. It is an excellent option for physicians who expect to be in a higher tax bracket in retirement, as Roth contributions are made with after-tax dollars. The Roth IRA protects you from paying future income tax rates, and this protection also continues for your heirs.

How can I maximize my retirement savings as a physician?

Maximizing retirement savings involves contributing to tax-advantaged accounts, such as Roth IRAs, traditional IRAs, and employer contribution plans. Our advisors help you implement strategies like backdoor Roth IRAs and optimize your asset allocation to grow your nest egg.

What is a backdoor Roth IRA, and should I consider it?

A backdoor Roth IRA is a strategy that allows high-income earners to contribute to a Roth IRA indirectly by converting a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. This strategy can provide significant tax benefits and is ideal for physicians who exceed the gross income limits for direct Roth IRA contributions.

What is a 401(K)?

A 401(k) is a qualified defined contribution plan that enables physicians to make pre-tax contributions from their income, which then grow tax-deferred. This means that you’ll only pay taxes when you withdraw the funds during retirement. It’s a popular choice for doctors to build a substantial retirement nest egg.

Can 25 Financial help with pension plans and profit-sharing plans?

Yes, our advisors offer comprehensive planning for pension plans, profit-sharing plans, and other defined benefit plans. We help you design and implement these plans to ensure a steady retirement income and financial security.

How do tax-advantaged accounts benefit my retirement plan?

Tax-advantaged accounts, such as Roth IRAs, traditional IRAs, and SEP IRAs, provide significant tax benefits that can help grow your retirement savings more efficiently. Contributions may be tax-deductible, and earnings grow tax-free or tax-deferred.

What strategies can I use to manage investment risk in my retirement portfolio?

Diversifying your portfolio across different asset classes, such as mutual funds, real estate, brokerage accounts, and taxable accounts, can help manage investment risk. Our advisors develop tailored investment strategies to reduce volatility and ensure your portfolio remains resilient.

What should I consider when planning for retirement as a self-employed physician?

Self-employed physicians have unique retirement planning needs, including managing their own retirement accounts and tax-advantaged plans. Our advisors help you set up SEP IRAs, solo 401(k)s, and other plans to maximize your retirement savings and ensure financial stability.

What is an SEP IRA?

A Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) IRA is a retirement savings account designed for self-employed physicians or those in small practices. SEP IRAs offer higher contribution limits compared to traditional IRAs, making them ideal for doctors looking to catch up on their retirement savings.

How can 25 Financial help with retirement income planning?

Our advisors provide comprehensive retirement income planning, ensuring you have enough money to sustain your lifestyle in retirement. We help you design a withdrawal strategy, optimize your social security benefits, and ensure a steady income stream.
