Fund that 401K

by James Hendrickson on May 21, 2013 · 2 comments

Hi All,

I’ve been at my new position for about six weeks now – roughly three pay periods.  I’ve been contributing the maximum to my 401k and have been getting company match.  This evening I sat down and had a look at my retirement balance.  It made me smile.   The total is about $1,600 which is great for having contributed twice!

So, if you have a retirement account, don’t forget to max it out.

Nice reminder! Even the littlest amounts add up over time. The company match is a very underrated perk of having a corporate job. I know many coworkers who don’t take advantage of it. It’s just like leaving free money on the table.
