    The Benefits of a Roth IRA for Doctors

    Everyone has heard of a backdoor Roth IRA, but what’s the big deal with Roth IRA’s anyway? Today, Dr. Lisha Taylor and I are going to be talking about Roth IRA money for physicians. This is an important topic because doctors often need to use any tax-advantaged space they can get their hands on since we normally have a high savings rate. So join us today to learn what a Roth IRA is and why you should seriously consider one as a physician.

    How much money should doctors save?

    How much money should doctors save?

    One thing we can agree on about today’s topic is this: doctors historically are under-savers. 
    But when it comes to physician money management, exactly how much doctors should be saving is hotly contested. How much and how you save is going to depend on your own financial goals and your current situation - the status of your student loans, whether you’re married or have kids or plan to start a family when you want to retire, etc.
    In this episode, we’ll give you two different options for figuring out how much money you should save - regardless of your situation.

    Student Loan Changes (Everything Doctors Need to Know)

    Student Loan Changes (Everything Doctors Need to Know)

    With all the recent changes surrounding student loans, it’s easy to fall out of the loop. If you’re not up-to-date on public service loan forgiveness (PSLF) and other rule changes related to repayment of your medical school loans, you’ll want to tune into our conversation.
    We’re answering this question from a Money Meets Medicine listener:
    “Once I refinance my student loans, how can I get student loan forgiveness if I change my mind?”
    You’ll hear what we have to say about that.
    Other questions answered: What are the new PSLF requirements and when do they take effect?  I missed the waiver that expired in October 2022. Am I really out of luck? I submitted my PSLF form, but still haven’t heard back yet. When will my payments be updated?  Can I get the $10,000 forgiveness and get PSLF?  Did the Biden administration make a change to the student loan forgiveness plan that excludes some borrowers from relief?  When should I consider refinancing my student loans?

Knowledge Meets Fun!

Two of my absolute favorites going back and forth about a topic I am passionate about. What's not to like? The shows offer different perspectives as well as actionable tips in a very enjoyable format. 10/10 would recommend.

Helpful for new attendings

Stumbled upon this podcast when it was offered as a suggestion after following WCI and glad I did. Really enjoy listening to Ryan and Jimmy go back and forth and give two different perspectives on the same topic. Even after listening to hundreds of physician finance podcast episodes over the years, I learn something new here each time I listen. Their discussion of the Kinder questions really resonated with me. Thank you for creating this content- it’s a great feeling to know there are people out there who actually want to help physicians!
