Listener Question of the Week:
Today’s listener question comes from Dr. Jason Bethea who asks:
My wife has 3 retirement accounts from previous jobs (internship & first attending job) that are with TIAA and Fidelity. Most are target date funds with expense ratios from 0.07% and 0.45%, I believe. What are our options for these now that she does not work for those institutions anymore? I know that we can invest in different funds that are available on TIAA and Fidelity but do we have any other options? She was a 1099 employee with her first attending job but we are both W2 currently. Thanks.

Physician turnover is high, specifically after the first 2-5 years of training. With doctors changing jobs so often, it is important to establish an emergency fund early on (and to consider the cost of leaving a job in medicine).
So today we wanted to dive into why everyone, including us, says you need an emergency fund, where you should put that money, what to use it for, and what NOT to use it for. We are also going to do some real talk on doing the math BEFORE you decide to either change jobs or leave medicine altogether.
