Back Watch those fees

What you don't know can cost you plenty over time and cut into your retirement nest egg. Did you know that if you pay 1% each year in fees on an investment of $20,000, then you'll have about 25% less ($64,000 less) after 30 years then you would have if there were no fees?

The administrative fees that some IRAs and investment funds charge can also have a big impact on your retirement savings. They seem little but they can really add up.
