Backdoor Roth IRAs and Why You Should Be Funding Them.

If you have no idea what a Backdoor Roth IRA is, listen to this podcast. Seriously. You need to know what it is.

Most physicians should be using a personal and spousal Backdoor Roth IRA.  Not only does this provide an additional $5,500 each ($6,500 each if you and your spouse are over 50) of tax-protected and (in most states) asset protected space, but it allows for more tax diversification in retirement. That allows you to determine your own tax rate as a retiree by deciding how much to take from tax-deferred accounts and how much from Roth accounts.

In this episode Dr. Dahle also answers listeners' questions about using a physician mortgage loan and prioritizing a mortgage versus paying off debt.

Disability Insurance for High Income Earners: Understand these critical steps to purchasing disability insurance.

A medical resident’s most valuable financial asset is his future earnings ability, which is at serious risk of loss due to a personal disability. Dr Dahle outlines critical steps to purchasing disability insurance correctly in this podcast.

This episode will further your education and walk you through some of those decisions.
