    One year to go... 14th Mar 17 at 1:02 PM
    Good afternoon All,

    I've got one year left on my mortgage, assuming nothing changes, then it'll be paid off in full 18 years early. My question is what should I look at doing next? By the time the mortgage is paid I'll be 34 and have already been putting quite a large amount into a pension (20% of salary incl. employer's contribution), as well as having a preserved pension from the military.

    So, what does everyone else do? I'd be grateful for any thoughts, suggestions or opinions please!

    Hi Lemon26,

    firstly - that's some great news, free by 34 is pretty amazing, and that's a hefty pension contribution too...I am hoping to be mortgage free by 44!

    From the sounds of it there's a few that consider buy to let investments. I will most likely move to a job which is less pay but more enjoyable perhaps...or just live a less stressful life...most likely the kids will be considering Uni/first house so I'll probably start saving to help them out.

    I think there's a separate thread on the front page of mortgage free section too for people in your 'What next' position. Good luck. Nice position to be in.
