I have a VUL with cash value I've decided I no longer need the life insurance associated with this policy. Is there a way to get access to the cash value without owing taxes? If no, how will it be taxed and how to determine how much gain/tax? I paid maybe $20k into this policy many years ago. Since then it has increased in value and also paid the premiums from the cash value. Today it shows $70k cash value. TIA

Incoming 1st yr BigLaw associate (V50 in a big city). I am curious if there are networking benefits to having expensive work clothes/accessories. I went to school on scholarship so I don’t have tons of debt, but my parents aren’t rich so much of the culture is foreign to me. I have hobbies I would rather spend my discretionary income on. But if having a Rolex or wearing Brooks Brothers suits would improve my standing w partners or if dressing cheaper would hurt, then I’d suck it up. Pls advise

Hey mummas, I'm struggling with how I feel about my team at work. None of them, including my manager, have children and they just don't get it. I'm pregnant with my third and my manager has never once asked me how I'm doing, only ever refers to it in terms of me 'leaving' for maternity leave so he'll be a resource down. Never once asked how I'm coping with juggling wfh & full time caring for my children through covid, and icing on the cake my baby just recently.. (continued in comment)
Our office isn't mandating people to come in until next year. But I went in and ended up staying until 11pm. Can I request reimbursement for a ride back home? Not sure if I can because the firm hasn't told us we must come in...

I spent the last 3 months "growing up" & now I'm ready to go. 1st thing is for me to get my own place. I'd like to buy instead of rent because I don't want to pay someone else's mortgage. I'm thinking of selling my car & cash out some of my 401k to buy a house. My thought is to put down 3.5% for a FHA loan then make a big payment towards the principal to reduce long-term interest. Anything wrong with this thinking or anything else I should consider?
What are your personal financial milestones? Whether it be achieving a certain annual salary or maxing out your 401k contribution annually, etc.

I’m getting married in 6 months. How can I lose fat in my arms?! I feel like my arms in my stomach are my biggest problem areas. Or at least the ones that make me the most self-conscious.

2021 Headwinds and Tailwinds. What are the thoughts as the fiscal year closes out? I'm seeing 2021 as likely more punishing given the lack of visibility and the fact we may have diminished economic activity for 2 to 3 quarters.

If a recruiter reached out on LinkedIn, replied to your response to request your availability for a call, but didn't reply again to confirm, is it safe to assume that role is no longer a go?
Partners (at Deloitte at least), are you all trained to refer to everyone as “good people” when speaking to them? I find it a bit disingenuous when Partners who I just met tell me I’m “good people”, “do great work”. I just scheduled a first networking call with you, or got pulled in to your project 2 seconds ago. I know you barely know me 😆
Interviewing with some companies - despite great feedback at interviews, they are all trying to slot me in at an independent contributor level or an level lower than my current. Feeling frustrated - male colleagues are getting lateral positions or a level above current. Need I mention I am also up for promotion at current firm. Has anyone experienced this? Is this bias or just a symptom of the Covid economy?
