My wife gets a 3% match on her 401k at work and I told her to put in 10% of her check into her 401k. I ask her to put in 10% because I work for the state and I'm required to put in that much. Is it right for her to put in that much? Can she just put into 3%?

Thanks for your advise.

I have $5000 and would like to invest in a Roth IRA. I have read good things about it but don't really know what to do. I'm 32 and work for a state agency in Ohio. I have about 5.5 yrs of service.

I don't want to depend on my pension alone.

Thanks for your suggestions.

If you want to put it towards retirement, well, a retirement account such as a Roth IRA is the perfect place.

Should I be worried about losing money? How does this Roth IRA works?

Yes, I do have an emergency fund - $7000. I just wanted to invest it - maybe additional income for our retirement.
