I’ve now been contributing to my company’s 401k for over a year. It’s valued at about 66% more than I had expected it to be, but it’s about half of what I’d hoped for. Overall, it earned pretty well, but the matched contribution was what really put me over the top. I plan on continuing the aggressive allocation in my 401k’s strategy this year unless my debt is completely cleared first, in which case I would allocate more.
I’d love to hear how yours compared.
