The Defined Contribution Plan Allocations for UC Physicians

This is a subject specific to physicians in the UC System: UC Davis, UCLA, UC Irvine, etc., with allocations to the DCP, the defined contribution plan that are contributions provided to you by your employer.

How does a risk adjusted investment strategy totally customized for you and your retirement plan at no direct cost to you sound? Over the past 20 years, we’ve seen many clients who simply aren’t allocating their retirement account effectively. We have found the vast majority of participants do not pay the needed amount of attention to the investment elections they make in their plans.

Some people actually work for a number of years having their contributions allocated to the money fund. This is effectively a checking account. Recently, you may have noticed a number of changes to your retirement plans. One of which is detailed in the Pension Protection Act of 2006. This Act describes how to make arrangements to provide for investment advice on your DCP as well as your 403b and 457 plans.

Through the use of the self-directed option or brokerage window, participants and their advisers finally have the freedom to invest retirement plan assets in a much wider range of investment options strategically, entirely congruently with their risk profile. If you prefer more choices, more flexibility, a personal investment solution at no direct cost to you, we strongly encourage you to contact us.
