You're interviewing for a new job, and you ask whether the company offers a retirement account. The employer says yes, and you move on to other topics. When you accept the job, you enroll in the retirement account and begin making contributions, but later on, you're disappointed by your savings.
Setting up your 401(k) contributions isn't rocket science, though it can feel that way, especially to those who aren't sure how much retirement will cost. There isn't a universal magic number, but there are a few pretty simple strategies you can use to come up with your retirement savings number right now.
If you are contributing to a 401(k) plan, you probably enjoy seeing those savings increase each year.
