    Smile in or for?

    Hi,
    Can anyone tell me whether it would be more correct to say: "It is going to benefit me in years to come", or " it is going ot benefit me for years to come"
    THnx

    Re: in or for?

    1. It is going to benefit me in years to come.
    => You won't experience the benefit(s) until X years from now.

    2. It is going to benefit me for years to come.
    => You'll experience the benefit(s) now and onwards for years.
