That  is a  very  clever  deduc tion. I  have  small  amou nt of  knowl edge  about  401K  and  such  invest ments Howe ver,  what I  have  seen  of  them,  you  stand  to  lose  consid erably  when  the  marke t goes  down hill.  On  the  note  of  your  post, I  do  have  to add  that  one of  the  steps  my  comp

Courtney 's 1st  response : I have to  admit  that I  know  very little  about  the  different  401K  plans. ..I' ve heard  about  them,  but being  in the  military  I've  never  really  research ed or  educated  myself. It  is scary  and can  be a slap  in the  face to  realize  that you  have  worked  all these  years  and now  due to a  recessio n you  stand to  lose a  big part if  not all of  your  retireme nt  savings.

I too  believe that  military life  is non  conducive  to achieving  a full  understandi ng of the  way 401Ks  function. I  recently  talked to a  friend of  mine that  said that  many  companies  are looking  at a  retirement  plan  alternative  that is  similar to  the one that  the military  has in  place.  These  deferred  compensati on plans  incorporate  properties  from 401K  and the  Federal  Retirement  plan that  the military  has in  place. The  distribution  of funds are  considered  usually  more stable  and less  risky - more  like  contributing  to a  General

Ben and  Brian, The  market  goes up  and  down all  the time.  In some  periods,  one's  stocks  might  lose  value but  will  usually  gain  after  several  periods.  The  misconc eption is  to take  out  money  out of  one's  investme nts when  it starts  to go  down. In  reality,  doing  this will  result in  more lost  funds to  the  owner  due to  the early  withdraw al fees  apart  from the  fund  being at  lesser  than  market
