People who stand up as soon as the plane lands, can you explain why? Not being snarky, but I don't see how it benefits much?

How old are you and what's your 401k contribution? I feel I didn't take it seriously in my 20s and now regretting 10 years later. How does one know you have enough saved up for retirement? TIA!

I dont think max out 401k is the best advice. Yes it is easy and intuitive for general public who tend to spend all their income but I think some of us are not in that mindset. My approach is to put

If you were offered 50% of your compensation and full benefits to take a 6-12 month ‘break’ from your job would you take it? Because that may be coming to you very soon.

Unpopular Opinion: Lyft/ Uber drivers don't deserve all the benefits of "traditional" occupations. Drivers are not being forced to work, it's a transaction based business model.

Maybe it’s me, but I just hate the fact that I should “max out my 401k.” How do I know ill even be alive to see retirement? Shouldn’t I just save money for a house or pad my savings rather than 401k?

Change my mind: MBA’s do not have a good ROI if you already make $150+ The only benefits I see are: -2 year sabbatical -Build irreplaceable network (arguably makes it worthwhile but no guarantee)

I’m screwed. 35 yo. Had some medical emergencies in my twenties and wasn’t able to save so only got $10k in 401k. This is assuming $19k max into 401k, retiring @ 67, $5300 monthly retirement income.

Whole life insurance: needed or put that money towards 401k? Male, single, no kids, no debt. I was sold a 300k policy for $435/mo. Was I taken for a ride?

Tempted to pull my entire 401k portfolio out of stocks and into cash and safer assets in the short term. I don't trust the market and think it's a bubble waiting for a correction. Is this a bad move?

I’m 25. Not a saver. Never have been. I’m not sure why, but I dislike the idea of locking money away in a 401K. Is saving really that important? Are there non 401K options?
