    What a great look at how a raise can have a big impact. Given your scenario, Dr. C’s move to the private sector would likely make her ineligible for the 457b contribution.

    • Good point. A 457(b) can only be offered by a governmental or non-profit employer. Most hospitals are set up as non-profits, and if she were to be employed by the non-profit hospital, she may still have the option.

      You’re right though, if it is a for-profit hospital / clinic or a private physician group, the 457(b) would not be available.
