Need a checkup
« on: July 24, 2014, 04:55:15 PM »
I thought perhaps I could lay out my current finances and get some opinions as to what kind of shape I'm in and what I should be focusing on.

Age: 44
401k:  230k
Cash:  20k
Total debt:  $0

I'm married, have a 19 year old son in college.

We are currently renting a house, but looking to possibly buy one soon.

Anything thoughts as to how I'm doing do far or what I should be concentrating on?

My guess is, you probably don't have enough socked away yet, but you're getting close. Do you have an income? Can you keep contributing to the 401k?

Okay? Good? Terrible?

Impossible to say without further details, but your 401(k) balance is pretty low for someone your age.
