I don’t max out my 401k but about 9600 a month for me. Try doing the calculator on smart asset - it’s pretty accurate


How are people here saying 9500 a month? Lol. I’m netting around 8400 after taxes, salary advance and 401k


Depending on where you live, something around $9,500 net each month.

$9k after maxing out 401k and paying for health insurance
