401k's? Retirement planning
« on: Nov 09, 2005, 04:16 »
I was wondering, could Nukeworker start their own 401K plan? For the cases that some companies may not offer one.  Or if not a full-blown 401K, maybe a family of funds that we could invest in?

Since Nukeworker isn't a company in which we are employed I doubt they can start a 401K.

Why not just go to Fidelity and invest?

indoprime,   whacha wanting to due?  get a nuke investment group together to invest only in nuke friendly companies?  leave out the greenppeacers, 'n tree huggers.  i gotcher slogan - 'we gots cash for u ash!'  well, i thought that sounded better'n 'you got pu ash?  we got your cash!'  but maybe knot.  anywaze, i kin dig it.  let me know what you find.

I like ur idea SloGlo.  Find some companies that are nuke friendly and invest in them.  I'm already doing the Fidelity thing, but i'd like to diversify more.

Your idea of being concerned about retirement is good, but using an employers 401K offering should only be a part of it. I started with a IRA during my "Rent-a-Tech" years and am taking advance of my current employers 401K. However I have also invested in individual stock in companies that have DRIPs. A few tangible assets should also be included - invest in what you know and not what a broker with a conflict of interest tries to tell you. As for Social Security, I don't even factor it in as it probably will not be a significant contribution to my retirement income.
Soon I hope to be at the K.M.A.M.F. setpoint.  :P
