If you are fortunate enough to inherit an IRA there are some things you should know. Inherited IRAs, also known as stretch IRAs (https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/new-stretch-ira/) have changed this year. You can no longer leave it to your great grandchild and have them stretch it over the next 80 years. They have to withdraw all the money in year 10. But a listener asked how this affects the backdoor Roth IRA, when it makes sense to roll the IRA over, and whether you can roll these over in the same way as you would other accounts. We delve into these questions in this episode for those looking forward to an inherited IRA. For the rest of you, we talk about whether you should do Roth or tax-deferred 401K contributions, rebuilding your practice during COVID, rebalancing your accounts, whether a medical student should buy disability and umbrella insurance, and what to do if you should have done your Roth IRA through the backdoor but you didn't.
