Retirement Nestegg Report – January 2010

Retirement Nestegg Report – January 2010

Well the market turned a little south this month, but my retirement nestegg actually grew at a pretty good pace this month. This was entirely due to the fact that I am now fully vested in my company’s 401k matching money. My company has a very generous 401k matching program where they match dollar for dollar up to 4% of your salary and that money is 100% vested from day 1 of employment and is deposited in your 401k account with each paycheck. They also contribute another 5.5% of your salary in matching funds regardless of whether or not you contribute to your 401k at the end of each year. This is the money that is not vested until 3 years of employment – Friday was my 3 year anniversary so this resulted in about $10,000 being added to my 401k balance!

Traditional Rollover IRA – $10,879.66 (-0.36%)
