Aaron Agte and Trishul Patel

Retirement plans are really complex...maybe more complex than they should be?

In this episode, Aaron and Trishul discuss a variety of the most common retirement plans. In exchange for substantial tax benefits, investors need to navigate a myriad of rules and restrictions. Aaron and Trishul discuss small business plans, including SEPs, SIMPLEs, and Solo 401k's. They then dig into bigger business plans, including 401k's, 403b's, 457's, and TSP's. By the end, you'll understand how non-Roth after-tax voluntary contributions can allow you to shelter close to $60k a year through a Mega-Backdoor Roth conversion.
