$81.5k but who's counting!? 😄

If by pretax you mean traditional, then the 82.5k is your taxable income (plus any other factors)

Federal and State taxable will be 82.5; Social Security will be 100.

And Medicare will be based on the full 100

I’d like to ask for 135k plus 10k sign-on since I’m forfeiting 5k bonus and another 8-9k in unvested 401k. Is that reasonable? I’d be ok with 130k and 5k sign-on

I graduated June 2019, started full-time September 2019 and I feel like I have been so bad with tracking, saving, and overall being responsible with my money. My savings amount has been pretty stagnant for as long as I remember and I don't do any "investing" apart from contributing to my 401K and making HSA contributions. Can't help but feel like I'm behind everyone and don't know how to get myself out of this rut feeling. Any tips for how to turn myself around (i.e. creating budget, etc.)?

Just moved my old employers 401k to a traditional IRA. Valued at 30.5k and I got it out before the market dip. Should I convert it to a Roth before the end of the year or does anyone have suggestions on etfs to put this money in. I’m 28 married filing joint and this is the last month or two before my wife starts working as well. My income this year was about 100k with 10-15k from rental property

EY High Deductible Health Plan vs Open Access Select (don’t have EY bowl access yet) I just started at the firm and am trying to pick my healthcare. I don’t really ever go to the Dr so I’m thinking of getting the High Deductible plan. My question is, what does it mean that it’s not a “national network (Is this a national network?: No)” but it’s “network coverage: see any licensed doctor”? Those seem to contradict. Also HSA vs FSA, as a healthy 26yo, which is right for me (High D only has HSA)
