Should I include my company’s contribution to a Cash Balance plan? My company gives us a 4% match for our 401k plus a 5% contribution to a cash balance plan. If so, my PP is 37

2. Brian says:

Do contributions to 529 plans count towards my power percentage? Or should they be excluded since that money will be spent someday and doesn’t contribute to net worth over the long term?

Thanks I am at 45%

6. Trisha Forletta says:

My husband’s union still offers a pension plan. Surprised; right? Does that get calculated into the Power Percentage?

7. Robert H says:

I must be missing something. I’m saving \$54,000 out of \$210,000 and my pp is only 25?

1. Pete the Planner® says:

Hey Robert. Thanks for your question. Can you tell me two things – How old are you? How much do you have set aside for retirement right now? Based on these answers, I’ll be better able to answer your question.

8. Chris says:

Pete- why only count gross monthly income vs. net (after tax) income? I ask because the test is to see how efficiently I use the money I have access to. However, I don’t really have access to about 25% of my income. Am I misunderstanding this?
