Will be getting my citizenship soon and want to sponsor my parents to the US. What is the best option to get them health insurance besides paying traveler’s insurance? Traveler’s insurance I pay now when they visit is around $300 per person. Will they qualify as my dependents or be eligible for Medicare if they haven’t lived in the US before?

I have a Rollover and SEP IRA alongside my current 401k.
My Roth account has the lowest balance because historically I've taken the tax deduction for pre tax contributions to the SEP and Rollover.
I understand if I contribute the money to Rollover and then backdoor to Roth, I will pay tax pro-rata based on the contribution percentage of total Rollover/SEP account balance (majority tax on funds that have grown).
Q: Can I open another traditional IRA solely for the purpose of the backdoor?
What are the long term benefits of an HSA? Reconsidering having one given that I have not had many health expenses over the last year.

Why is it that most people recommend to max Roth IRA before Roth 401(k) (beyond the match)? Since expense ratios in a 401(k) are so low I would think Roth IRA should only come after $19,500 is in 401k

Been in healthcare consulting for a little under 3 years now out of college and the consulting life is just not for me. Looking for something with more WLB and ultimately would like to be on the other side of things, working for a large healthcare system. I’m lost in terms of where to start. What positions have people transitioned to from consulting?
Current contract - amazing company that has been vocal about bringing me on when approved but no promises. Contract is $60/hr. I negotiated high due to paying private health ins at high $. I was offered a role at a different company for $105K with a $5K sign on and additional benefits. I expressed my need for a $115K base in our original conversation. Anything less than 115K is a paycut from current $ and if I was offered FTE at current contract. Thoughts on negotiating? I dont want to be greedy

I’m looking for assistance on building your own portfolio in my traditional 401K. I’ve been reading that it’s important to choose funds with low expense ratios. Also, that it is recommended to have at least one US stock, international stock , and bond. I am 24yo so ideally, I’d want to allocate 90%-100% to stocks and 0%-10% to the bond. Any other things I should be looking at?
I used to claim 2k every month for WIFI in TCS for 4 months under straight through employee referral and it by passed my supervisors approval too but a mail used to go to supervisor.
He questioned me a lot after 4 months as if he is paying 2k from his own pocket and I stopped.
Worst policy here. 410 wifi reimbursement we get in TCS lol that gets added into our salary every month.
A normal phone recharge costs more than that and TCS still stuck in its cheap mentality of cost saving.

Has anyone exited commercial banking into sales/tech/corp dev/other? I have 5 years in global sales and marketing at a major airline + 2 years as a senior commercial banker (fell back on MBA network in 2020 when covid got real). Current base is 105k + 30% bonus. Starting to think about the next move and would like to leverage the experience from both worlds instead of climbing the ladder in commercial banking. Appreciate any thoughts.

lam about to join a new org in a few days and they have planned a travel to Europe for me to get Technical KT. But the thing is they said only for 2 weeks. They are going to file a business visa(l can stay up to 90 days). I want to spend some more time there( atleast 2 months). How I can convince them to increase this duration?
Since I will be new there l'm not sure what to say. Only thing I know at this time is, the project is a bit complex and all developers are outside India.

Not sure if anyone who’s not in the ACN bowl will be able to read this (let me know if not, and I’ll send screenshots). But.. it’s concerning how many people don’t know what a micro aggression is. Not referring to OP who asked for examples, but the actual responses are so loud and wrong.
I love y'all. In case y'all needed a casual reminder that you matter even if your workplace doesn't reflect that.
ICYMI. I think Omar Epps should play this dude in the movie. Or maybe Ice Cube's son. (I refuse to make the obvious Ice T joke)
Don't care if this falls into virtue signaling. I appreciated the response (and yes, I asked a robot how it is feeling. Quarantine feels are real)
New to Fishbowl?
unlock all discussions on Fishbowl.
I would start here OP. Personally, I use a website called "The Forecast", but I only gamble (hand-pick purchases) with money I can afford to lose.
The best method for money you can't afford to lose is to find a few ETFs or Index Funds and ride it out. Very few people consistently beat the market.
DCA your investments and let it ride; that's the consensus winning strategy
I learned a ton on that bowl.

3. I opened a brokerage account outside of my work account to try my hand at investing, but so far, I’ve lost money.
1. am I missing anything?
2. Is there anything else I should be doing to improve?
3. Would anyone within this bowl be willing to look at my current portfolio allocation and advise on what to add/remove?
Thanks in advance.
Also the market has been down these past few months due to the fears of rising interest rates and ongoing conflicts between russia and Ukraine. Likely your stocks are down right now but hold for the long term. Agree with the comment above, low cost index funds are great option, vanguard has some great ones
There are some good tips in the PI bowl someone shared above.
From what you have said, my thoughts are:
1. You could be more aggressive in your investments (you are 28). Bonds are HYSA are more conservative
2. If unsure buy index funds and let it sit over time.
It’s about ‘Time in the market’ not ‘Timing the market’.
