My goal was to save $9,000 for retirement this year and I have officially completed that goal. As of November 15, 2016 I managed to tuck away $9,000 into my retirement account. The value of my retirement account currently sits at $9,449. I had a goal to earn 5% on my retirement fund this year and I just might make that.
Technically, I have made more than 5% on my retirement account because I still have $935 (part of $9,000) sitting in my settlement fund. So only $8,065 has actually been invested.
Let's just hope that the stock market continues to make smooth, steady progress upwards throughout the end of the year.
How are you guys doing on your retirement accounts this year?
