..and I really need some assistance with my 401k plan. I only have about 5k in it and I want to know whats the best way to distribute my
contibutions? If I contribute 10% of my salary, what types of funds should I invest in? 2% Large cap, 2% International Growth Fund?, and etc... I obviously need to be aggressive to catch up. As you see, I have no idea how to handle the fact that I have only 25 years left to invest. Any guidance is greatly appreciated.
