At Accenture, % of bonus goes toward 401k, but it’s impossible to go over. If you max before match finalizes, a true-up will be processed to make you whole

Depends on employer plan. Some yes, some no, some true up later

Philosophical question (not trying to be political, just a genuine question I’ve been grappling with): do you think being pro-choice and pro-vax mandate are logically inconsistent?

Goes the other way for pro life/against vax mandates as well. The fact is, they just feel different to me, but I’m not sure why. Thoughts?
