Should I use my retirement funds to payoff my debt?
100% of people found this answer helpful


As any financial professionals may advise you: not to touch the 401(k) for any loans as it’s your only future savings. If you feel the pain of owning debts now, can you picture yourself debt-laden at the retirement age when you have no other sources of income?

As frustrating as it may be right now, the first step is to get your financial house in order: 1) Know your budget or cash flow: Automate your savings.  Purposely make it a habitual effort by setting 15% of your pay to another checking/savings account, then direct the rest of income to other living expenses. After a while, you will see the needs from the wants, and you are not going to live from paycheck to paycheck. 2) Without knowing the interest for the student loan, it’s tough to advise. However, if you think your loan interest is high, then find out your credit score and possibly refinance through a private lender. 3) Make an extra payment toward the highest interest loan or the small balance loan. Your personal loan balance is smaller than the student loan, and you may want to make extra payments to pay that off first, such as pay twice a month, instead of the monthly payment only.  Once it’s done, use the same strategy to pay off the student loan. Meanwhile, keep up the good work of saving towards your retirement in the 401(k). Best!
