That'* almost unheard of nowadays, I work for Verizon, and they match 82% up to 6% of your salary.

Interesting. I just took out a 401K loan from my company before logging onto BC about 2 minutes ago. Time to pay off the credit cards .

My company pays 80% of the first 6% and makes a nice contirbution at the end of each year.

Im almost 100% fully vested (5 years) and increased my balance by $2,820.72 since my last staement. I dont change any of my selections. I just leave them as they are.

mines a 403B. O% matching, 5 more years of the 7 to be fully vested.

To all who haven't started one (401k, IRA...), DO IT NOW if you can. Even $100 helps over the long haul and the early years is where you make all your interest.


Live frugal, retire rich!

Good advice, ESPECIALLY if you have a company match. YOU ARE THROWING MONEY AWAY if you don't take advantage of it.
