How are folks thinking about permanent life insurance? 45, making let’s say for example (not my exact numbers): $1M per year, not yet vested in pension. Was thinking need to replace the post tax take home, about $550k NPV’ed at 5% to age 55, so that’s like $3.2M. Maybe pension is worth $2.5M so I think that means I should have $5.7 total you want death to have no financial impact. Also was going to do $1M of that in perm w/ LTC rider. Sound right?
Question for current moms - did you lose weight to or before getting pregnant? Were you able to maintain a manageable weight? Not pregnant yet but so scared of gaining too much and having long term health issues due to weight gain.
Trying to figure out how to manage health issues and work balance. I just recently found out I might have herpes (waiting for the test results to come back) and I have been very and feeling like my life is over especially because it came from being cheated on and struggling with prioritizing my bandwidth and not knowing how to communicate it with my team. Due to stigmas around something as common as herpes I cannot comfortably share that with my team.
Super bummed - took my health seriously this year, lost 40 pounds, found my love for running again, and was preparing to post a PR marathon in a couple weeks. My first day of tapering and I suffered a grade 3 ankle sprain. Now that my sob story is over - how do I stay healthy and relatively fit while being immobile for a bit? Do I just really need to focus on diet? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Fellow PwCers. Are you on a firm health care plan, vision, dental, or legal plan. If for so, has it been valuable?

Just got the call from the assessor that my car is totaled. Other driver / their insurance accepted full liability. My car is a lease. The amount that my insurance valued it at is 29k and I owe 23k more on my lease. Any suggestions on how to navigate this are much appreciated. I’ve never been in a car accident before so this is all new to me.
I’m due August 04, 2021 and will take a 6 week maternity leave starting August 2 (assuming the baby doesn’t come earlier than that). My boss asked me when he should stop giving me new files/ease up on my workload. I didn’t know how to answer since I’m the only female attorney here and this is my first baby. Any insight? (I’m an insurance defense attorney if that matters).
This may sound bizarre but in a pinch. I have been jumping through hoops trying to get imaging for a new lump in my chest. Everything is so far booked in my area that it’s impossible to get scans same week even if you call first thing Monday AM. It’s now been two weeks since I discovered it and am still waiting on schedules to get tests done. My insurance covers ER visits 100%…wondering if I just do it? I have a busy life and really just need answers.

How many people here want access to mental health resources but don't? If so, what's stopping you from access mental health resources? Professional help availability, money, time, stigma? Have an interesting business idea but looking to validate it, thanks!
Home owners & home improvement savvy folks - wwyd? I share townhome walls w my neighbor, & they had a burst pipe in their second story bathroom. The water leaked into my first floor garage. I will be calling insurance when they open - but what can I expect in terms of home repairs? Will the sheet rock need to be replaced and interior dried with heaters? Will my 2nd story floor have unseen water under the hardwood? Mold is a risk.

When should I tell my boss/team that I’m expecting? I’m fully remote and don’t have to worry about “showing” at work, but want to give my colleagues ample heads up without jumping the gun too soon
Used to spend all my weekends with this guy I was seeing last year. Things have been so rocky this year, we barely meet. He wants to take some time off and concentrate on himself and being more active before committing to anything. He has literally filled all his weekends with sports and meetups there after. He tells me about everything he does honestly but I can’t help but feel replaced.

Hi ad peeps, copywriter here with experience at several NYC agencies, anybody hiring? Happy to share my book but am still employed by my agency so would want to share it directly with you via email.
I wrote a rec letter for one of my legal assistants for law school right before COVID got bad and we all started working remote. Ever since then, this assistant has seemingly been slacking. There’s only so much I can actually see/review without seriously micromanaging her. I’ve spoken to her about her slacking at least twice and both times she just brushed it off. I want to withdraw my rec letter, but I feel like it’s too late. She is leaving at the end of the summer. Should I just let it be?
A bit of a sensitive topic. My son is 3. One of friends has 3 boys and she asked me to babysit them one weekend. The middle child, 10 years old is very handsy with my son. I’ve asked him multiple times to not carry him or hug him since he doesn’t like it and the boy still manages somehow to find his way to be physically close to my son. Today while I had my back turned to them while they were all eating at the dining table I heard a kiss sound and turned to see the… Cont’d below
