401k milestone

August 29th, 2021 at 12:35 am

As of this week, my 401k balance topped the $200,000 mark for the first time.

I started this account when I started working here per diem in April 2016. I went part time in February 2017 and full time in November 2017. I contributed the maximum allowed in 2018, 2019, and 2020.

So 200K accumulated in under 5-1/2 years. Not bad at all.

    My 401k will hit 100k this week, accumulated in a bit under 5 years. Not as impressive as your 200k but in line with my income. The markets have provided strong tailwinds over this time!

    A combination of a high contribution rate, a generous match, and a strong market.

    Since April 2016:
    My contributions: $107,955.52
    Company match: $42,649.37
    Total contributed: $150,604.89

    Current value 8/30/21: $200,395.59
