30 Day Challenge: Day 17, Are you leaving Money on the Table with Your 401K?

When an employer offers a match on their 401K, check if it is evenly distributed over 12 months or not when considering the total contribution to the max. If someone contributes too much to their 401K each pay period, they might fill it up too quickly, and then their employer would not be able to legally add any more for the remaining months should it be maxed out too quickly. The other advantage of this is that one may actually be able to have a little more take home pay, which is never a bad thing!
