20/20 Money Episode # 94 – A Powerful 401(k) Option You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

August 24, 2020

Utilizing a retirement plan like a 401(k) profit sharing plan is a great tool to help optometrists save money for retirement. It’s also a way for them to reduce taxes in higher earning years and deferring that tax liability until future years.

While most optometrists may be familiar with Traditional 401k and profit sharing plans, a little known planning tool that exists is the ability to make after-tax contributions to a 401k plan. This strategy is often referred to as the “mega back-door Roth” strategy.

In this episode, we talk about the history, details, benefits, and strategies an optometrist can consider when utilizing their 401k for after-tax retirement plan contributions.
