Just switched jobs. Old 401k has more than $5k and new 401k is with a different provider. Is there any reason whatsoever to move the old 401k cash anywhere, either to the new 401k or to an IRA? Given that it's more than $5k, it can stay there indefinitely, right? I'm fine with the investment options with my old 401k. And I can transfer it over to a new IRA or new 401k anytime, even years in the future, right? Given that no distribution will come to force the 60 day rule?

Having a NW of ~700K at 31 with a combined HHI of ~250K. . 1M is estimated value of home we live in , ~650K is mortgage on it. Have ~100K in the market, ~25K in cash and HYSA, 275K in 401K and roll overs. What are we doing wrong? We live in the bay area and this does not seem to be enough. Always have a feeling that we are not making enough and are poor.

I spent the last 3 months "growing up" & now I'm ready to go. 1st thing is for me to get my own place. I'd like to buy instead of rent because I don't want to pay someone else's mortgage. I'm thinking of selling my car & cash out some of my 401k to buy a house. My thought is to put down 3.5% for a FHA loan then make a big payment towards the principal to reduce long-term interest. Anything wrong with this thinking or anything else I should consider?

I recently switched employers. I used to have Kaiser Permanente health insurance & loved my doctors. Have been with them for almost 3 years.

Thinking of just paying for it to keep KP, but it’s a difference of ~$200. Or just find new doctors?

Need help with a very entry-level career decision… Long-term goal: Product Management/Product Marketing for tech company. 0-1 YOE. 1: CDP Analyst at Accenture, TC ~93 with sign on bonus. No 401k matching first year, 6% after. 2: Sales for CPG (PepsiCo/Unilever/P&G), basically partnering with e-commerce platforms to manage sales and product. Easy job and we get a car on top of TC of $81K (although only 71 of that is base). I know the numbers are both rookie, but I’m fresh outta college.
