One listener felt a lot of my podcasts are geared toward the younger physician. She really wanted to know more about investing as she nears retirement. She had questions like is a portfolio 100% in index funds appropriate for a retiree? What about alternative strategies - bond ladders, dividend paying stocks, using options as an insurance policy, and those types of things. A common misconception is that someone nearing retirement should do something dramatically different than a 25 year old. Bear in mind a typical 55 year old still has a 30 year investing career. The right investments for a 55 year old are exactly the same as the ones for a 25 year old. But perhaps the mix will be a little different.

A cash balance plan is a type of defined benefit plan (pension) that acts like a defined contribution plan (401K). When private companies were trying to get rid of their expensive pension plans, many of them converted their pension plans into cash balance plans, since they cost the company less. Employees didn’t like this, as their benefits were often lower, but it does provide an option for a physician or similar professional to shelter some more money from Uncle Sam. In this episode we discuss how they work.
