1 2015 REPORT ON U.S. PHYSICIANS FINANCIAL PREPAREDNESS: Women Physicians Segment Start Here 2015 AMA Agency, Inc. a subsidiary of the American Medical Association

2 Introduction Women are playing an increasingly prominent role in the medical profession. More than one-third of today s U.S. physicians are women, and in the age forty and under group, 49 percent are women. Across ages and specialties, they share a host of characteristics in their lifestyles and profession. But a striking characteristic is their top personal financial goal achieving a secure retirement for themselves and their spouses or partners. And more than half of them are well on their way - 53 percent consider themselves on track or ahead of schedule in saving for retirement. A comprehensive view of women physicians; personal finance However, despite this good news, there is a world of personal financial challenges unique to being a physician. We delved into them in our 2015 Report on U.S. Physicians Preparedness: Women Physicians Segment, covering their personal financial goals and concerns, family situations, financial acumen, retirement readiness, and future plans. We also uncovered six (6) key traits shared by financially prepared women physicians and asked for wish I had known this earlier in my career advice to share with other physicians. The result is a current, comprehensive view of today s woman physician and her attitudes and behavior about personal finance. Report data offers age comparisons in key financial areas While women physicians across all age groups share common personal financial goals, the report data also indicates differences by age in how they approach personal finance and financial issues. These can be seen by comparing women physicians age 40 and under, 41-50, and over age 60 in these areas: family life, top financial concerns, personal finances, financial acumen, insurance protection and retirement readiness. Report offers insights, peer and expert advice We believe that setting a healthy foundation for personal financial security is paramount to success as well as peace of mind. AMA is committed to offer insights, tools, and advice from experts and peers customized to women physicians to help achieve that goal. Mostly, we hope that this report resonates with women physicians, and that all physicians find it of value. We wish to thank the women physicians who contributed to the report, the American Medical Association (AMA), and Robin Robertson CLU of Millennium Brokerage Group, LLC, for their support. As always, we look forward to any questions or comments you may have. Denise S.

45 Conclusions & Women are becoming increasingly prominent in the world of medicine. More than one third of American physicians are women, and there is now an unprecedented 51/49 split between men and women physicians age 40 and under. As family breadwinners with multiple responsibilities at work and at home as well, women physicians particularly have little time to devote to their family s personal finances. Yet over half of them of all ages do spend what they consider to be adequate time on their personal finances and feel on-track or even ahead of schedule in preparing for a healthy retirement. Personal financial issues by age differ; create a complex financial picture While women physicians across all age groups share a secure retirement as a common personal financial issue, there are differences in almost every other area of their personal financial lives. The differences show up clearly in comparing women physicians by age age 40 and under, 41-50, and over age 60. Physicians can feel financially prepared for retirement at any age A key finding is that regardless of age, 53 percent of women physicians feel financially prepared for retirement, which is their number one personal financial goal. In fact, among women physicians age 40 and under, 54 percent feel on-track or ahead of schedule. While one might think of age as the prerequisite to financial preparedness, this is not the case with women physicians. With them, we discovered that it is more of an attitude and commitment to taking the steps needed to assure a secure personal financial future. ly prepared women physicians share 6 Traits 1. Considers retirement portfolio on-track or ahead of schedule (for their age, and career stage) 2. Keeps a liquid emergency fund adequate for their current lifestyle 3. Feels adequately protected in the event of a disability 4. Uses a professional financial advisor 5. Has an updated will, medical- and end-of-life directives in place 6. Feels more knowledgeable and confident about personal finances We especially wish to thank the respondents in the Women Physicians Segment survey for their advice and candor. We ve felt privileged to get to know this unique group better, and to be able to offer insights and recommendations that can help them succeed in their personal financial lives. We invite you to review the report in full, and hope you will forward it to your colleagues.

46 As family breadwinners with multiple responsibilities at work and at home, women physicians have little time to devote to their family s personal finances as a matter of practicality. Yet over half of them (of all ages) do spend what they consider to be adequate time on their personal finances and feel on-track or even ahead of schedule in preparing for a healthy retirement. Women physicians can feel financially prepared at any age While one might think of age as the prerequisite to financial preparedness, this is not the case with women physicians. In fact, with them, it s more of an attitude and commitment to taking the steps needed to assure a secure personal financial future. When we sifted through our research findings overall for the 2015 Report on U.S. Physicians Preparedness: Women Physicians Segment, we actually uncovered six traits shared by women physicians of all ages who are financially prepared. 6 Prepared Women Physicians 1. Considers retirement portfolio on-track or ahead of schedule (for their age and career stage) 2. Keeps a liquid emergency fund adequate for their current lifestyle 3. Feels adequately protected in the event of a disability 4. Uses a professional financial advisor 5. Has an updated will, medical- and end-of-life directives in place 6. Feels more knowledgeable and confident about personal finances The 47 percent of women physicians who said they feel behind where they d like to be in financial preparedness typically lack most or all of the traits. Their profile is very different from women physicians who believe they are prepared. It starts with developing a complete financial plan early in their career with a trusted professional advisor, counsels Senior Wealth and Planning Strategist Robin Robertson, CLU. Having that plan in place gives the physician a guide to manage her increases in income and successfully meet the challenges of changing work and life situations.

51 Overview Women Physicians Age 40 And Under Women Physicians Ages Women Physicians Ages Women Physicians Over Age 60 How financially prepared are you? Compare yourself to others in your age group. Their life situations and ages may be different, but their top personal financial goal is the same for U.S. women physicians providing a comfortable retirement for themselves and their spouse or partner. They also have two other key goals in common saving money for their children s education and long-term health needs. However, there are marked differences in how women physicians at different ages approach personal finance and financial issues. Here are four examples drawn from the report findings. About half of all women physicians believe that their profession has unique and/or more complicated financial needs than other professions. That belief decreases with age, normalizing as they pay off their medical school debt. Use of a professional financial advisor grows with age. Only about half of women physicians age 40 and under use a planner compared with 70 percent over age 60. Most (70 percent) women physicians age 40 and under have no estate plan. In contrast, most over age 60 have an updated will, end-of-life directives, medical directives and power of attorney in place. Still, at that age, one in five have no estate plan at all. Two-thirds (65 percent) of women physicians have an emergency savings fund. Just as many young women physicians have emergency funds as older women physicians. View more differences by age in these quick-read profiles for age 40 and Under, 41-50, and Over age 60.
