My original plan was for DH and I to retire in 20 years (when I reach age 55). However, upon realizing we will have the mortgage paid off in 10 years, I'd like to consider retiring earlier. That said, we would need to increase our retirement savings. We currently max out both our 401ks and IRAs (back door Roth). Our 401k plan allows for post-tax contributions (I'm not talking Roth 401k) which, by my understanding, can later be rolled into a Roth IRA. Would it be worthwhile to start making post-tax 401k contributions as opposed to a regular, taxable brokerage account?
