Answers to Those Mind Boggling Financial Questions

December 12, 2007 at 4:44 AM 2 comments

Have you ever wondered whether you should pay off a credit card or fund your 401(k)? Save in a Roth 401(k) or a regular 401(k)? Lease a car or buy one? Prepay your mortgage or invest? Buy a home or rent one? Take Social Security early or late?

I have wondered about a number of these questions quite often and have run my own calculations a number of times. In fact, it seems my husband and I discuss the mortgage issue at least a few times a year.

Well today Money provides the pros and cons of each of these options. You can check out their very informative article here.

    I was wondering once about Roth vs 401k and found that particular calculator on Money. I played with it for a long time – ’twas fun. It made me wish I had been a bit more aggressive when I first started saving. Oh well ..
