Currently, I am contributing 15% to my 401(k). My company has decided to no longer match our 401(k) contributions. They contributed up to 6%. Many of my coworkers are no longer contributing to their 401(k)s because of the lack of matching. I am continuing to contribute inspite of no matching. The way I'm looking at is: I'm still ahead because all of the money I put in is pre-taxed, so, it's still free money in my pocket later on. My co-workers who have stopped contributing think I'm crazy. Am I right in my thinking or should I stop contributing and roll my money over to somewhere else?
