I got laid off and need to rollover my 401k, any tips? I am thinking a Roth IRA. Also maybe a stupid question but do companies automatically match or do I need to ask my previous employer to do their match before rolling it over?

After 6 yrs of PM/PO out of college working for Cigna, I was informed my position is being eliminated due to “staff reductions to combat with rising costs of healthcare.” I was offered severance & I’ve got several positions in the works with the same company thankfully. I was caught off-guard, never had a bad review & was expecting a promotion soon. If there’s ever been a sign to jump ship it’s now. I’m an enthusiastic PM ready to embrace new challenges. Any1 want to hire me? DM for resume! 🤝 🤞🏼

Had low energy and motivation since last year... to a point where even the fear of being laid off isn’t doing much. Am I just lazy? Or is this a symptom of something greater/different? It’s been hard to get sleep as I stay up worrying about a million different things. I also get hot headed more frequently and my SO suggested that I go to therapy, which I scheduled for later this week. Anybody in the same shoes? Any advice? Vicious cycle of underachievement and resulting low morale.

WSJ has a story of how many furloughs are becoming permanent. In my industry, UA and AA will lay-off 53,000 people on October 1. I’m lucky because SWA is fiscal with its spending and had enough people to take voluntary separation so that we won’t have layoffs, at least for 2020. I was wondering what is happening at your workplace.
