Same. Squirreling away

Every other day this is asked. What’s the point ? I make a lot more than you so my percentage is small. How’s they helpful to you?

6% for now to at least get the full match while I’m building up my emergency fund

My advice to anyone would be to contribute to the IRS match as soon as possible, and have your spouse do the same. While getting a loan from a 401k is a horrible idea, it can be done in an emergency.

I’m only doing 6%. I feel like a ton of folks respond ‘maximum!’ to these posts. I’m working on paying off debt rn while balancing wanting to get my full employer match. Do I wish it was more? Yup! Do I plan on increasing it to max in the near future? Also yes! Am I there at this point? Nope.

16%

40% 👀

50% until I max out.

Max contribution.

3%. I’m hoping to stay at my current employer (God willing everything goes well and the job doesn’t take a toll on my mental health). You can always increase your contribution, but for now I’m starting off slow esp since I have a lot of retirement funds at my previous employer that’s still earning interest

Cap contributions, have every year since college, 25 years on now,

New to investing, but want to make sure I'm doing this correctly. I've maxed out my 401K and am looking to open an IRA. I know everyone recommends backdooring this into a Roth IRA, but if my plan is to move/retire to a state with no state income tax, wouldn't traditional make more sense? Or am I overthinking this? Also, if I go the backdoor route, how do I make sure I don't get taxed again, when i convert to a Roth? Thanks in advance!

Hi! I have a few questions on the backdoor Roth in which I’ve done a bit of research online. When it comes tax time, will my 401k vendor (Merrill) give me the correct documents? I’ve just used turbo tax in the past but am worried of any documents I may be missing to adjust any tax. Also- when does the pro-rata rule come into play? I’m just nervous in the entire process as this is my first year doing this. TIA!!
