Are most people in the industry maxing out their 401ks? Or just contributing enough to get the full company match. I’m actually not sure if my excess $ should be going here but I already have my roth IRA, HSA, and share plan (enough for match) maxed in terms of contribution. I could also hit the $20,500 limit pretty comfortably.

It’s ideal to max out retirement accounts first because obviously that money grows tax deferred. Once these are maxed out you can explore individual brokerage accounts and other investments like real estate, crypto, NFT’s, etc. All depends on your interests and risk tolerance.

Max out the 401k in order to lower your tax bill. Might as well take advantage of that to let all that money grow until retirement.

^^this is the way. If you can afford to, max it out to reduce your taxable income. Another helpful thing with the 401k is it forces you to choose investments. So you don’t get overwhelmed or procrastinate on choosing your investments like is possible with individual investment accounts.

I don't contribute to a 401k, it's a scam in my opinion. Listen to Robert k's podcast on it. I think you can Youtube it

Wtf lmao

The common theory is to max it out for longterm gains, but I honestly don't expect staying where I am too long, and I need more $ now.

Is it common in the industry for licensed insurance agents to not get any commissions on a referral in which you personally write the policy? Ex: If a current client refers a prospect to our team, I would not receive commission. Additionally, if I write a policy for friends/family I would get a small incentive but it’s a fraction of the commission producers make.
Management is considering changing this going forward. However, I’m not sure how I should react if they keep things how they are now.
