re: 401k - $100k milestone - LSUEEAlum
[quote]This board is what I read when I need a kick in the testicles. If you dont have a 100k in your retirement at 30, buy a home with 20% down at 25, and make 100k by 28 you suck at l[/quote] Probably because there are a lot of engineers on here. That's pretty much exactly how my life has gone....

re: 401k - $100k milestone - LSUEEAlum
So I guess my next question would be is if you have $100k by early 30's does that put you in the top 5%? 1%? of people in that age group? By this thread it seems that $100k is avg by age 30. :lol: and I know that can not be the case....

re: 401k - $100k milestone - LSUEEAlum
For me I started my 401k at 23 and like i said I did not contribute for an entire year and I'm 31 now. So roughly 7 to 7.5 years. Just got to the point, maybe a year ago, when I was able to start maxing out....

re: 401k - $100k milestone - LSUEEAlum
I just turned 31 and just hit that mark. Was just trying to gauge how well I am doing. I was also hoping by 30 to be at 100k but I had one year where I stopped contributing due to wedding/house/and having to work part time due to lack of work....

[quote]should be thankful[/quote] Very thankful, lucky, blessed that I found a job so quickly. Like I said above I wasn't expecting to find a job here for the rest of the year. I had already set up my unemployment account because of that. Glad I won't need to use it just yet....

re: Unemployment - LSUEEAlum
Yeah I can go many weeks probably years without a pay check. And being an engineer has nothing to do with it. I know a lot of people that are terrible with money including engineers that do live pay check to pay check even though they make six figures. It was just a question. If I am eligible to g...

re: Unemployment - LSUEEAlum
I didn't make any money this week. That's a reason to file for unemployment. But like another poster said I probably won't get anything because of the week of waiting. Just didn't want to leave any money on the table. ...

Unemployment - LSUEEAlum
I was laid off last Wednesday. I start a new job on Monday. I only had enough vacation to complete a 40 hour week last week. Is it worth it to file for unemployment this week? Would I even get my $247 check since I already have a new job?...
