I'm not sure I like this. Thats a pretty big hit, as I have been investing for quite a while, and while I'm not tooting my horn and saying I'm rich by any stretch, some decisions worked out well.
Why would one be calculated one way and the other be in a different way? Other than to get a healthy retirement sum that is... I'm not saying I won't agree to it... I'm not saying its wrong... I'm saying I'm not sure I like it.
I know youall can't answer to my legal issues in my state. But, what has been anyones experience here?
