Retirement Milestone

July 7th, 2019 at 06:40 am

Our retirement accounts hit a new milestone on July 3, 2019. We have crossed the $600K mark. Considering the value was under $500K at the end of 2018 because of the market drop last fall, it feels good that the markets have rallied once again.

If you have no retirement, at least start researching types of investments. Understand fees. Understand risks. Put some numbers into retirement calculators to see how your money can grow.

If your employer offers a retirement plan, set up an automatic investment there. Automatic investments with your employer keep you from spending your money before you get it invested. Automatic investments from your checking account are also great as you never forget to invest.

Just 13 years ago our retirement accounts were just $25K. It's hard to fathom when you first start that you will make it to $100K. But consistent dedication to investing does pay off.

    Congratulations!! Milestones are great because they prompt a pause to reflect. $100k in less than a year for you - that's fantastic.
