DC Retire
The calculation is simple: if you spend less than what you earn, you will have an excess. If you spend more than what you earn, you will have a shortfall. 

Make sure you are taking control of your personal finances. Distinguish between wants and needs and create a budget to live within. Remember, if you overfill your cart when you go to the store, stop shopping when you are hungry! 

Here are three things you can do:
  • Prepare for an emergency.Having an emergency fund will make all the difference when your car breaks down or your roof leaks.
  • Get ready for retirement.Enroll or save more in your District of Columbia 457(b) Deferred Compensation Plan. Work towards saving at least 10% of your gross (pre-tax) annual income. Learn how to enroll in the 457(b) Deferred Compensation Plan.
  • Give yourself some credit. You need to establish a credit history to get credit. If you do not have a credit history, it can be difficult to get an auto loan, an apartment lease, or mortgage.
