Is a pension easy to equal on your own?
I'm on a roll w/ these questions!
So I guess the subject line says it all...
If I give up a state job for greener pastures, can I easily equal or beat the advantages of a state pension?
I know nothing about annuities or any other similar option, but I am guessing that annuities do the same thing as a pension...right?
Is maxing a regular 401k or Roth likely to be a better option?
OK... looking forward to your responses!
