This. A couple of % into Roth 401k, the rest into traditional 401k combined with Roth IRA makes a good balance and hedge against whatever the future will hold. It's probably not strictly optimal but whatever.

Nobody should be giving money to the IRA. Supporting terrorism is not the way to go even if you agree with their ideals.

Yep. 10 percent into a traditional 401(k). Employer matches part of that. I have no idea where I'll be in 30 years, but even with all of this I'm not sure I'm going to have enough for retirement.

9% to a traditional 401k, employer matches full amount.
