The Danger Lurking In Your 401k Plan That Could Derail Your Financial Future with Josh Robbins

Bulletproof Dental Practice Podcast Episode 23

Hosts: Dr. Peter Boulden & Dr. Craig Spodak

Guest: Josh Robbins / America’s Best 401k

Key Takeaways:

  • The 401k is a massive liability for any business owner.
  • As the business owner, you are in charge of setting up the account for the sole benefit for your employee.
  • The providers of 401k are broken. There are too many so you need to choose the right one for your team.
  • There are many funds within a 401k plan. You need to know what and why it is being offered and what fees are being charged.
  • The best scenario is a level playing field where there are no middlemen and you get access to all funds regardless of how big your plan is.
  • You can hire a fiduciary to handle your 401k liability for your employees.
  • Investigate the fees being charged to your 401k plan. Most can be cut off.
  • Dentists are easy prey for 401k brokers because of several factors: high income, recession proof, want to look out for their teams, etc.
  • Brokers don’t earn from startup 401k plans so they give a different kind of plan that will earn them a lot. You can save on these fees by going to a fiduciary company.
  • The earlier you start your 401k plan, the better – you’ll save more for less equity / contributions.
  • Auto-escalate your contributions to your 401k fund.
