WCI #260: Self Employed Retirement Accounts Q&A
In this episode we answer your questions about self-employed retirement plans. If you are self-employed, open a solo/individual 401(k). If you make a lot of money, you might consider a personal defined benefit plan. Do a backdoor Roth IRA and a health savings account. Those are your retirement plans for a self-employed doc. That's the basic setup.  Anything you want to save above and beyond that goes in a taxable account. So it is not that complicated. When you get into all the details though, there can be a lot more questions. We tackle those questions in this episode.

WCI #259: Doctors Who Become Disabled
Two doctors who became disabled relatively early in their careers and had to learn to navigate the disability insurance world, while dealing with very difficult circumstances, join our podcast in this episode. We are happy that Dr. Kelli Sekulovich and Dr. Shakila Angadi were willing to share their experience and to help educate on the importance of disability insurance.  You are running a risk all the time. One of the crazy things about a medical career, and other high-income professionals are very similar in this respect, is that you have spent a great deal of your life learning a valuable set of skills. That's partly why you're paid so highly. It doesn't take much to keep you from being able to convert those skills, that education, that knowledge into income. If you lose that ability, it's pretty bad. It is so important that we all have the right amount of disability insurance.
