    bit of due diligence on your company retirement plan, whether it's a 401 ( k ), 403(b), or a 457 plan. And there are a couple of key reasons to take a look at that first. One is that you may get matching contributions from your employer on your own contribution, so that's a big incentive to take a look at that plan. The other thing is that there aren't any minimums to invest in a 401 ( k ), 403(b), or 457 plan, so that's another thing that can make it very easy for smaller investors to get started. You get automatic dollar-cost averaging, so the money comes out of your paycheck--whether you like it or not--which tends to be a really good way to invest. It fights against some of those behavioral issues that investors can run into. And another reason I like 401 ( k ) plans as a starting point for beginning investors is that, even though some of the investments might not be very best of breed, they are generally not too kooky either. So, you generally get very broad market index funds, you usually get some target-date funds. Those are all really strong core building blocks for starter portfolios. Stipp: So, definitely take a look at that company retirement plan. But we do know a lot of folks don't have access to these plans, some folks might not be getting matches, other folks might look at their 401 ( k ) and say, "It's really not that great, and I'm not getting a match." So, for folks like that who want to go
