We have a simple plan that I fully fund at 6500.00 (this year)This is lousy compared to my friends that work for big companies and can contribute much more to a 401k. What can I do???? I didn't start till i was 27 and there is no way I'll make retirement putting just 6500 a year away like that. i buy other funds and stocks as well but can i do anything else pretax???? i was told i can't do a Roth or anything else pre tax. If so this is yet another example of the goverment kicking us little guys. it's just not fair if Mr corporate can kick 10k into a 401k and have his company match it than why can't we???
