Okay, settle down. I used .5% as a threshold compared to the crazy 2-3% you hear horror stories about. Mine are .05 to .15%

1. Max out your Roth IRA $5,500 per year investing in Index Funds such as S&P 500 or Total Stock Market index funds with low expense ratios below .5% is a good expense ratio 2. Look at rent and see if buying a condo is a good idea - This will vary based on where you live. This money is a great w...

My advice is to invest in this order 1. 401k match - if your company offers it which it sounds like they don't 2. HSA - if you are single/don't have a bunch of kids and your company offers it 3. Roth IRA to the max - Vanguard low cost index funds such as admiral shares 4. Back to 401k up to the 17,5...

Pay off house -80k, 6 month emergency fund -40k probably high since you will have no mortgage, -30k roth ira/401k over the next 4 years so you hit 1x salary at 33 years old, have fun with the remaining 50k and enjoy not having a mortgage. Keep putting 10% into 401k/roth ira since you have a pension ...

Do your company match then pay off student loans as fast as possible. Once they are gone you should contribute at least 15% of your income into retirement. You should also immediately start contributing 10% into your emergency fund since that is very underfunded. I am basing those statements on the ...

I'm new to MMA. Where can I set one up? I did a google search and found ones with $50,000 minimums with less than 1% interest rates. Am I missing something?

I-Bonds are currently 1.76%

It seems pretty obvious to me what he should do. Once you get a thousand dollars open a Roth IRA with vanguard.com. Place the money in a index fund such as S&P 500, Total International, or Target Date fund and make sure it has a low expense ratio ie .05 to .30 percent. Make sure you reinvest tho...

Do anything you can to keep down the Student Loans. 6.8% + inflation is ideal to get from index funds but not guaranteed. Unless you are certain the IRA will outperform the student debt. It will feel good to not have very much student debt aswell.

Save the files to the root of C:\\

Files stored in your Documents folder, user folder, and desktop will be gone. Take with a grain of salt but I believe I am fairly certain. Remember that setting in programs will be gone aswell as browser favorites. These are often missed.
