Time and tide wait for none. What also does not wait is money. The reality of the American dream could hit you hard when you reach your retirement time. As a result, people fall for ignorant retirement mistakes leading to big problems. Especially, when there are bills to pay for a myriad of things, from electricity bills to the medical bills (trust me; no one will be perfectly healthy by that time with the way our lifestyle is going). So, you have to stress not only about your present but also your future. That is where 401(k) comes in.
As the cost of providing pensions have surmounted, the employers are replacing them with the 401(k) Retirement plan. A feasible retirement plan will help you remain monetarily stable and help you continue living your life. After all, little drops make the ocean. How is it different from other old-world investment and pension plans?
An introduction to 401(k):
A 401(k)-retirement plan is a defined-contribution plan. It is a plan in which employees can invest pre-tax dollars, the money before tax is deducted, in the capital markets. Further, the money they have invested gets mature in a tax-deferred way until the time of withdrawal, which is retirement in this case.
