403B Plan - Strategy
« on: May 23, 2018, 02:42:20 PM »

I am setting up my wife's 403B plan.  She is planning to contribute the maximum and I currently contribute enough to get a company match (7%).  I have set up mine using a target date to avoid for simplicity. 

I am hesitant to go heavy on stocks right at the onset as I feel they are overpriced at the would you recommend she allocate her contributions?

We are both 29.

Thank you in advance!

Somewhere in the range 80/20 to 100/0 stocks/bonds.

If you can avoid panic selling, you will likely do better than Bob.
