Which retirement plan is best for doctors?

11th Oct 2023

Let us point you in the right direction.


During turbulent times, doctors remain good prospects for a tax-advantaged plan.

Defined Benefit and Cash Balance retirement plans allow high income self-employed doctors and owners of small medical practices to make the largest tax-deductible contributions each year, often $150,000 or more. Dedicated DB’s personalized service and easy setup process simplifies opening a new plan. Now is a great time to contact doctors or their accountants, who are thinking about tax planning at year end.

What are the advantages of Defined Benefit plans for physicians?

  • Provides the largest contributions each year, often $150,000 or more
  • All contributions for these plans are tax deductible in the year they are paid
  • Starting as late as age 52, a physician earning $305,000 can accumulate $2.67 million in 10 years

How can you identify doctors who fit the profile?

Physicians in certain specialties are more likely to be self-employed, have few employees, earn high income or side income like receiving 1099(s), and need tax solutions. They may include:

  • Anesthesiologists
  • Endodontists
  • ER
  • Locum tenens
  • Pain Specialists
  • Podiatrists
  • Radiologists
  • Plastic surgeons
