retirement perspectives

The market wasn't as nice to me this week... i have to keep remembering to only buy shares on fridays.

My Goal is the leave the workforce on my 55th birthday, 11,546 Days from now.

** I’m not including the $1,100 in cash that I have sitting aside to Max out my Roth IRA for 2009. Until the money is deposited in there, it technically isn’t in there and therefore is not accounted for in this update.**

401 Account: Approximately 3.01 % of my portfolio• $586.92 (Employer Paid 1% of Salary); $623.53 Worth
o Up 6.23% from inception, +$36.61
o Stable Value Money Market Accounts make up 31.34%
o Milestone 2040 makes up 68.65%

457 Account: Approximately 4.98% of my portfolio• Employer Funded. Future Contributions Discontinued (minimal interest earned—like pennies)
o Positive $1,032.33

ING DIRECT Roth IRA: Approximately 11.34% of my portfolio• $2,300.00 Invested; Worth $2,349.84

Excluding my Pension, my variable retirement accounts are worth $14,116.49. Of that I’ve only invested $12,900.00 of my money (the rest has been my employer). So technically I’ve made 9.4%. If I compare all the “free money” and my contributions (Totals 14,519.25), my portfolio is down 2.77% since inception.
