How much (%) do you contribute to your 401k (including both pre and post tax)? Researching is very difficult bc consultants don’t even remotely resemble the average American financially, so just curious how I stack up against peers.

~20% of bonus, then whatever average monthly % is required to max out the year. Have been maxing out contributions every year, starting as an analyst

I max it out (58k last year)

I'm sure most of us just max it out, whether that's the normal cap or the mega backdoor Roth cap if your company does it and you have the money.

Me personally, I max out the Roth, so it's ~$27k pre-tax, which gets me to the $20,500 contribution limit. I don't have the money to have even looked into the mega backdoor. I do do the $6k backdoor Roth IRA though. Comes out to ~17% before employer contributions. They add 7% more.

Money is great, but not special. 32 with first kid on the way, currently trying to save for the dream house (without selling our current house). Definitely not in a position to mega backdoor it yet.

Enough to max out for the year, bonus hits for me towards end of year which gets me to max contribution in November.

Now max out on 401k (didn’t my first year out of undergrad). Did pre tax before MBA, now do post tax after.

I’ve been maxing out my ROTH IRA since I was 16. Now doing backdoor, as bain doesn’t offer mega backdoor.

13%

I just max it out

I’m 29 and married. Been maxing out my 401k with Roth contributions for years now, since I believe taxes will only go up come retirement age. Is there an income (single or joint) threshold you reached where you stopped going all in on Roth contributions and switching fully to Traditional (pre-tax)? Cont’d in comments…
