We live our lives as if tomorrow will closely resemble today
Because it is a thing that grown ups do and because I am lucky to have a benefit such as this, I am looking through the 401k info for my job. There is a worksheet that I am recommended to fill out and the first question is:
In approximately how many years to you plan to retire?
My options are:
In 4 to 6 years
In 7 to 10 years
In 11 to 16 years
More than 16 years
Based on my age and my current lack of independent wealth, I suppose I'll be working for more than 16 years.
