How hold were you when you saved up $100K in your 401k?


I'm trying to guage my success rate here. I haven't made it there yet and I'm 35. I also got a late start with my 401K with not starting it actively until at age 29.

ETA: Admin please keep this on the OT b/c I want an OT's perspective on this issue.

I'm close but not there yet. And I've got almost ten years on you. Remember, the bigger it gets the faster it grows. Yeah, that's what she said. I know. Hope this makes you feel better. I read something a few days ago that said only like 30% of Americans over the age of 40 have ANY money saved for retirement, so stay at it.

If you're like most of us, you married into debt.

Don't exactly remember, but it was early 30's. Probably 32-33 or so.

I'm a few years away...hopefully by 26 or 27


Looking at this now a few months since posting, I realize my judgement was off. New goal is 29yrs old which is aggressive, but attainable.

You must either have a hell of a return, a hell of an employer match, or both. The most you could have contributed since 2009 was $66,500.
