I’m not an expert but as far as i know you don’t have to say it’s elective. Just say it’s surgery and your physician recommends two weeks off, and get a note from the doctor if necessary.

I’m having cosmetic surgery next Friday. I only told them I am having a procedure and will be working the following week from home. Not sure how intense your recovery is, but would you be able to still do work at home?

Anyone else in the FIRE camp (Financial Independence, Retire Early)? Started second guessing 401k contributions, since I'll likely want to start drawing on it well before 59.5. I know there's an exception for the early withdrawal penalty (72t) for equal payments, but I'm wondering if there's a better investment vehicle than the 401k if early retirement is the goal Would be interested to hear others' suggestions/experiences Thanks!
