Saving for Retirement
I've started a new job recently -- it's a small technology firm, and they have no retirement benefits in place (nor are they likely to in the future). I've always worked for colleges in the past, and so have a small nest egg built through tiaa-cref. Now I'm not sure what to do to save for retirement from this point forward -- it was so easy before, you'd just say "I want x% of my salary put into retirement," and you didn't have to think much beyond that :)
I want something that is structured, and that I can't dip into (don't trust myself), so no just sticking it into savings. Does anyone have any suggestions of options that I should investigate? I see that tiaa-cref has things like mutual funds and IRAs -- should I investigate those?
