660k net worth at mid - late 30s still feel insecure due to no access to affordable Health Insurance. Health is ok, some dental issues. But, can we really call this a free country if one health issue can bring you on road? What are the options for health insurance if you try a new job and get fired?

You can always do COBRA from your old job or get on one of the exchanges. Depending on your situation you can also apply for Medicaid through you local assistance office.

Lol. The fact that you have 660k net worth and are still complaining is why we can call this a free country.

Take a trip, open your mind.

Marketplace is income based that is your best bet otherwise pay full coverage cost on COBRA which will mean you pay your prior employee cost plus employer side cost probably $1,000month or so. Goodluck on next opportunities and agree USA needs better insurance options.

Also, switching plans if you use insurance really messes up your deductive and out of pocket coverage.

I’m about to go independent and reached out to an insurance broker and the quote he gave me for my husband and myself was ~$1k/mo which is still ouch! but less than I was anticipating. But there are so many factors that go into determining best rate so its hard to estimate but definitely worth looking into. I feel like we are often pressured into staying in corporate jobs bc of health insurance and its really frustrating!

How many months you planning on being unemployed?

1. Oracle India - 18.2 LPA fixed
2. Amadeus Labs - 17 LPA fixed + 1.5 variable + 75k joining bonus.

I want to join Oracle for its brand, but Amadeus on the whole provides better benefits than Oracle like transportation, food facilities and better hikes. Is it true hikes in Oracle are terrible?

And how is the job security in Amadeus?

Is anyone struggling to find a job after layoffs? I’ve been unemployed for three months now and it has taken a toll on me. I submitted close to 300 applications to become a PM. Unfortunately, entry-level PM roles are rare and most companies want 5+ YOE at this time and so I was rejected for about half of them. Been interviewing every week the past few months and got very close to 10 companies but all fell through due to hiring freezes. Any tips on what I should do? YOE: 1.5

Went for a pre-employment drug test yesterday. They never asked me if I was on any medications. I had to ask them and was told "oh yeah, just put any you may think make a difference in this text box." I put Xanax, Flexeril, and gabapentin. All of which are prescribed and used as directed. Now I'm terrified that I should have put ALL my meds, to including my psych meds. I've been sober over 12 years and never touched drugs (just booze) but I'm having a full blown panic attack.
