My wife (a physician) works part time for a group of physicians. The partners in the group (the established full-time workers) have a profit-sharing plan in place for their retirement. They do not offer this option to their part-time employees. The "group" said they would gladly send moneys deducted from her monthly paycheck pre-tax to a retirement account. However, I am unclear what legal account this could be sent to. She has an IRA and variable annuity (Index Fund-Vanguard) to which she has contributed post-tax dollars for years. Is there an account she could set up that could legally receive pre-tax dollars to serve the purpose as a retirement account and be the equivalent of 401(k) or 403(b)??? Or if there is nothing offered by the employer ("the group") is she unable to place pretax dollars in a tax-deferred vehicle? Please advise. Thanks in advance. PAG
