Serious note to all those posting on LinkedIn offering to write a recommendation for anyone they know who has been laid off. How about just writing it without having to be asked first. The last thing someone who just lost their job wants to do is ask you for help, even if they need it. If you want to make their day, just go ahead and do it. Oh, and obviously don’t write about them in the past tense, especially if they haven’t changed their employment status on LinkedIn.

Anyone in the UK here? Looking for some FIRE tips. Current ‘waterfall’ is: 1/ Max out pension contributions (just under the new taper threshold so £40k/year) - mix of tracker and active 2/ Max our 3 year carry forward allowance on pensions, 3/ 20k/year in ISA (had paid into a LISA for one year but live with my partner who owns, so unlikely to use this for first home purchase; will wait until 60), 4/ Paying down mortgage before end of 5 yr fix, so we’ll be at 60% LTV. Any tips beyond this?
