As I logged onto the account I was surprised to see this figure:
woozers!!! I have been working at the part time job almost 5 years ( in September it will be 5 years) and this is the balance of my retirement account. I have often changed my contribution rate but have always contributed. Most of last year, even with the markets down I was contributing between 10 and 15 percent.
This year with paying for the wedding and trying to get out of debt I have kept the contribution rate at a measly 6%.
I had thought about quitting the part time job after the wedding but am thinking that I may have to stay until the end of september.
A note posted on my retirement account states " The 2009 Retirement Savings Plan Company match will be posted to accounts in September 2010."
There is no way that I am turning away that free money.
until next time, think prosperous thoughts
