Retirement Milestone

November 23rd, 2016 at 06:57 am

I'm less than $500 from reaching $500k in retirement. My birthday is December 5th & I hope to reach it by my birthday. If my 401k contribution wasn't still floating out there & had been deposited into my Vanguard account I would have reached it yesterday. I'm not sure that these market highs will hold for much longer so I may not reach the goal by the time my contribution shows up. This is a goal I've had in mind for several years & now it's almost a reality. It's very exciting to see it come to fruition.

I'm also excited so see that according to Zillow, I'm almost at 50% equity in my home. Thanks in part due to the fact that my home didn't flood in August, so it increased my home value by about 10%.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all! May you and yours continue to have abundant blessings in the seasons to come.

    Spoke too soon! I actually did reach that milestone today! Yay!!! Retirement contribution to my 401k finally posted. I'm not crazy about how long it takes for my contributions to post. At my other jobs retirement contributions posted the same day as my paycheck. With my second job it takes 5-7 days for my contribution to post, which means the contribution from my December 30th paycheck will probably be a 2017 contribution by the time it is actually invested. It's okay for this year since I'm not close to my maximum, but I'm shooting to reach my max for next year & would rather that last contribution of the year post in 2016.
