Not Sure How Much You Want to Save?
Consider your savings goals and time until you retire. Make sure you are saving enough; if your employer offers a match, contribute at least enough to fully take advantage of that amount and increase your contribution a little each year. Of course, you can change your contribution often*, so that you are not stuck if your budget suddenly becomes too tight. You can choose a percentage or dollar amount of pre-tax and/or Roth (post-tax) dollars to contribute from your paycheck per pay period.*
*These features may vary based on your company's retirement plan.
