A lot of people have this fear of required minimum distributions. Understanding how RMDs work is important but you don't need to fear the future taxes. See this post for more information https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/dont-fear-the-reaper-rmds/ One listener was concerned that they would end up losing money in retirement because not enough time and effort was spent in planning strategically for RMDs. In this episode we dive into everything you need to know about required minimum distributions: how they are calculated, what the minimum is, tax implications, and tax mitigation strategies. If you have any fears about RMDs, this episode will help alleviate them. For those of you who are not laying awake at night worrying about RMDs, we also answer listener questions about what to do with old retirement accounts, backdoor Roth IRAs, naming beneficiaries for 529 accounts, bond tents, how risky hobbies will affect your insurance, and indexed universal life insurance.

Getting quality disability and life insurance should be the first financial chore for a doctor to complete. Most docs don't have the ideal policy for their gender, specialty, state, or health status and 1 in 7 doctors get disabled at some point during their career. Because these policies can only be purchased through brokers, we have put together a list of vetted agents who are experienced with working with the specific needs of medical professionals and who have your best interest at heart. If you have questions about insurance and what kind of policies would be the best fit for you, check out our insurance recommended list at https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/insurance and feel the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have the optimal policy in place. You can do this and The White Coat Investor can help.

Physician on Fire has been retired from medicine for a year and half. Granted the pandemic kind of screwed up a lot of his plans, but we can get an idea of what this early retirement life looks like. See the full shownotes http://whitecoatinvestor.com/first-year-of-retirement-with-physician-on-fire-podcast-204 We discuss that loss of identity as a doctor and what he says he does for a living now. Does he miss work? Is he happier now? What are they doing about health care? How will they leave wealth to their children? We also talk about the psychology of changing from the accumulation phase to the withdrawal phase and what his asset allocation is now as well as what it would be like to return to practicing medicine. Many think about an early retirement. This episode will give you a picture of what it could look like for you.

Management service organizations (MSOs) provide a range of administrative and managerial services to doctors. With the trend in practice ownership changing from ownership to employees, more people will be interacting with MSOs, either as an organization providing administrative services for your practice or as a private equity buyout that acquires your practice and you take more of an employee role. In this episode we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of an MSO to help you decide if this move is right for your practice. We also answer listener questions about what to do if you are denied life insurance, whether you should do Mega Roth IRA or tax deferred contributions, where to put your REITs, and purchasing company stock.

Paying off student loans quickly doesn’t take a high physician size income. It simply requires you to live like a resident for a little bit longer and put large chunks of your extra income toward the loans each month. Working together with her partner, this pediatrician slayed her six figure student loan debt in only 15 months, giving them the freedom to now spend how they want without the weight of debt on their shoulders.

If you still have private student loans at a high rate, we recommend checking out Student Loan refinancing with Splash Financial.

This millionaire radiologist graduated medical school with a net worth of a bottle of wine and a bicycle. 8 years out of training he was a millionaire. How did he do it? Not with the typical white coat investor portfolio. But we learn there is more than one way to become wealthy. They all start with a high savings rate though. He applied the 1/3 rule. He saved a 1/3 of his income, enjoyed 1/3 of his income, and used a 1/3 for his living expenses. Save 33% of your income and you can do nearly anything and still be a multimillionaire by mid career. Check out this post for ways to increase your savings rate. https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/friday-qa-series-7-ways-to-increase-your-savings-rate/

Attorneys who specialize in asset protection often use a lot of fear in their marketing materials. They want us to feel like we are going to be sued and lose everything. Is this fear appropriate?

We discuss a basic framework for thinking about asset protection, domestic asset protection trusts, personal liability insurance, malpractice insurance, protecting your home equity, LLCs, the California Private Retirement Plan, bankruptcies, and how many doctors he has known personally who have lost everything in a lawsuit.

For medicine and healthcare nationally, it is not good that as physicians, we are tending to abdicate our leadership opportunities. If we refuse to do it, less qualified people are going to take on that role with consequences which we don't necessarily want. In this episode we discuss physician leadership with Dr. Brent Lacey. See the full show notes here https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/the-value-of-physician-leadership-podcast-197. We talk about how to overcome our reluctance to lead and be better leaders, how to run more efficient meetings, manage hiring and firing better, deal with crises, and have a vision and a mission for our practice that everyone buys into. In the day to day work as a doctor, leadership is required. Gain the leadership skills you need. Start with this episode.

Understanding how the tax brackets work will aid your tax planning and make for more informed, reasonable discussions of tax policy. People don't actually grasp how tax brackets work and they routinely overestimate how much they pay in taxes. We think there are four reasons why tax brackets are hard for people to comprehend. Listen to this episode to find out what they are and to gain a better understanding of tax brackets. See full show notes here https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/understanding-tax-brackets-podcast-196. For those with a firm grasp of how they are taxed, we also answer listener questions about choosing stock options or restricted stock units at your next job, what are the major classes of bonds the average DIY investor should understand and consider, which bond classes are least correlated with stocks, what a reasonable overall bond allocation is, bond classes that individuals who live in high COLAs should consider, AOTC tax credits, financial book recommendations for children, and Non governmental 457s.

At some point in our financial lives, it will be time to buy a home. A physician mortgage can be a good vehicle for a young doctor who’s just out of school and has a more effective place to use their money than on a big down payment. These loans allow doctors to secure a mortgage with fewer restrictions and a lower down payment than a conventional mortgage. But if you’re further advanced in your career or deeper into your journey to financial freedom, buying a home with a conventional mortgage and then, later on, potentially refinancing that loan to a better rate with a shorter time frame could be a great move. Wherever you are in your financial journey, make sure you use the mortgage that will be most financially beneficial for you. Hop over to our recommended tab to learn more about all of your mortgage and refinancing options at https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/mortgage. You can do this and The White Coat Investor can help.

I often tell people having a written investing plan is crucial to their financial success. That requires that the investing plan first be reasonable. There are lots of portfolios out there that simply are not reasonable. There is not just one way to invest successfully. If you pick something reasonable and fund it adequately, you are highly likely to reach your goals. In this episode we will go through 10 ways to know if your written financial plan is reasonable, answer several listener questions about their financial plans, and give you directions on how to get a written financial plan in place, if you have not done this important step yet. See the full show notes here http://whitecoatinvestor.com/is-your-financial-plan-reasonable-podcast-192

I estimate that 80% of doctors need, want, and should use a financial advisor and/or an investment manager. Some investment gurus such as Dr. William Bernstein think my estimate is way too low. At any rate, if you want to use an advisor temporarily or for your entire life, there is no reason to feel guilty about it—just make sure you are getting good advice at a fair price. If you need help updating your financial plan or just getting one in place, check out our list of recommended financial advisors at https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/financial-advisors. You can do this and The White Coat Investor can help.
