What To Do When – What if… the market crashes, you change jobs, you lose your job, you need emergency money. Let’s talk about how to handle your 401k in these situations.
- Up the amount you contribute to your 401k by at least 1%
- Identify the next time you may get a cash influx such as a bonus, tax return, raise, freelance income, etc. Mark this on your calendar as the next time to increase the contribution rate to your 401k
- Create a set schedule (I recommend twice a year) that you review your 401k and income/expenses. Make it your goal at these times to have increased your income and reduced your expenses enough so that you can increase the contribution rate to your 401k by another percentage point until you reach the maximum.
