People are bragging about becoming 401(k) millionaires — and posting their balances to social media

How are Americans’ 401(k)s doing? Just check Twitter.

In what many will see as the latest sign of investor euphoria — and of our society’s oversharing epidemic — sharing your 401(k) balance on social media seems to have become a thing.

Meet a Reddit user going by the name “Subject—Beef.” He wrote that he has contributed $308,000 to his 401(k) since 1995, and posted a detailed rundown on his yearly contributions and resulting balance of $1,007,375.50.

“I strived to become a 401(k) millionaire someday, and this week, thanks to years of consistent savings and a long bull market, that goal has come to fruition, at the ripe age of 45,” the post reads.
