      I’m not looking for financial advice (b/c I know everyone’s situation is different), but generally speaking — am curious to*see what*others would do in this very generic scenario:

      *

      Scenario:* In addition to funding a Roth, let’s say you’re contributing 15% to a 401k.*

      *

      Question:* How many would lower the 401k contribution to 10% and use the extra money to pay down principal and pay off the mortgage in let’s say 20 years (instead of 30)?* Or would you rather try to max out the 401k?

      *
