20/20 Money Episode # 92 – Five Reasons Why I Don’t Like SIMPLE IRAs for Optometry Practice Owners

August 10, 2020

Choosing a retirement plan for your optometry practice is an important decision and it’s one of those processes that can often be put on the back burner by ODs. It’s common for us to see mature practices still utilizing a SIMPLE IRA in their practice and, when asked why they still use a SIMPLE IRA, a common answer we hear is “Because it’s much cheaper than a 401(k).” This is also advice that we see being shared in online communities as well.

In today’s conversation, I want to share with you five reasons why the SIMPLE IRA is not the long-term retirement plan solution for your practice, backed up with specific examples and case study illustrations and projections.

As a reminder, you can get all the information discussed in today’s conversation by visiting our website at integratedpwm.com and clicking on the Learning Center. While there, you can also set up a 20-30min Discovery conversation to learn a little bit more about how we help ODs around the country reduce their tax bill, manage cash flow, and make proactive money decisions serve ODs & what it means to work with our firm or check out any number of additional free resources like our eBooks and on-demand webinars.
