Should I be rolling my old 401k accounts (opened through past employers) into my IRA? If so, does it have to be a new IRA or can it be to one I already have opened? I just heard someone mention this and didn’t know this was a thing.
I love teaching art but am having to teach remotely to 1150 kids, k - 5. Have about 54 amazing elementary art teachers in my district that share SO much! I could retire (34 yrs), but just don’t want to because I love what I do! Feeling like my students aren’t getting what they should because I am struggling with Zoom, Microsoft, safe YouTube, bitmoji, embedding, downloads, editing, etc. Anyone else feeling this way?
Does EY 401k provides Brokeragelink feature from fidelity? If so how to start the process?
Has anyone used The Warton Group for 401k appointments? Seems like a lot of money for uncertain success...
How does the partner retirement/pension plan work? Is an income guaranteed for life? How does that get calculated?
My current ROR on my 401k is -12.97% 🙃🙃. I know rates are pretty bad now, but is this lower than y'all? And any advice on how I can learn about investing wisely for my 401k?
Right now I’m maxing out my Roth IRA and contributing to my Roth 401k ( I get a company match but those $$ go into the regular 401k. Does it make sense to then rollover my Roth 401k into the Roth IRA? (I figure I have more investment options and don’t have RMDs when I retire) Is this the best way to invest for retirement right now? I make 80k a year so I figure my taxable income will only increase over the years.
Does your job offer a pension? Care to share? I’m wondering if ours is competitive and also wondering whether to stay or leave for greener pastures? Population: around 35K; 5 years to vest; retirement age 65; pension calc based on average of last 5 years’ salary times years in service times multiplier; multiplier is 1.25%. TIA!
Disclaimer: ignorant on rollovers…trying to mitigate that here. Currently rolling over my 401k with a previous employer to my current employer, per their requirement. The previous 401k intuition cut me a couple checks (pre-tax and Roth) and now I’m supposed to mail those to the institution running my new/current 401k. Does this mean I had to close all my positions (a loss in most cases 📉) and now have to use that lump sum to purchase new funds, albeit a lower price point (at this moment)?
I'm checking out 401k match options when considering salary, but am not sure what is standard now. What are your company's vesting options?
Sanity check. I like a nice lifestyle. Currently make 350-550k with bonus. 53 years old. About 400k in brokerage. Another 1.9million in retirement accounts. House worth 1.2 million with loan of 625k. For retirement pension will be $2400 per mo which goes to my wife if I die for life. Another 3800k Per month estimated from Social Security. I plan on working another 10 years or so maybe less once the kids graduate college. I am this will be out in 2024. What should I be doing or thinking about? ￼

Tips for how you’re accumulating wealth with absolutely no financial inheritance/intelligence from parents? I want to retire early but am late in the investments game. I have a Roth IRA invested in a target date fund, max out my HSA and invest in REITS and ETFS, and contribute more to 401k when I have leftover $$. What do you guys do? Am i missing any smart moves here?
When is it a good idea to seek a wealth management person? I’ll be ~200k total per year, max out 401k and Roth, but not sure if/when the tipping point occurs where hiring a wealth manager is worth paying for.

Hi all- new to fishbowl. Not really sure how to use and explore the app yet but I saw this bowl and figured I would introduce myself. I am a wholesaler for 401K and I am able to partner with advisors who currently uncover 401K opportunities or are looking to learn how to. Reply if you are an advisor in the NYC area and interested in learning about how to expand your business.
I am currently at a company I have been at for 7 years and I get vested into a pension at 10 years. The pension is good but I do not enjoy my work anymore and there is limited to no mobility at my level. I was recently offered a global hrbp role for 30k more than I am making now. I’m not sure what to do! Do I stick out 3 years for the pension or take this new position?
If I roll over an old employer 401k to a Vanguard IRA, can I then roll that over to a brokerage account in order to have access to margin? I’m aware of the risks of margin, just a hypothetical question. TIA!

What rate would you expect from freelancing through temp agency? I’m trying to pick up some remote side work through a creative staffing agency I used to work with. First gig they mentioned was $40/hr, just for some light weight marketing design. I know it’s lower than I could get going Indy, but I like that I don’t have to hunt for work when going through them. What rate would you expect when working through an intermediary agency, and for what type of work?
My parish expects the SPED teachers to teach face to face resource/self contained classes while teaching virtual classes in tandem. I am not sure if this is something that other places are doing but I am feeling like it will be impossible. How can I teach individual students on computers while teaching other students (more that one grade level at a time). Has anyone else been told this?

Hi guys, I have two propositions right now : Delloitte usi -Audit and EY India - Tech consulting. Don’t know which one should i go for ? For a little background this would be my first full time job… which should i go for considering keeping my options open in near future.
Curious to know about the process of leaving PwC or another big four. I signed an offer letter today and plan on putting in my notice when we get back from the break. What happens when I put in my notice? Also, will they have me leave that day if I am going to another PA firm (though it is a niche firm, so not really a competitor). Thanks!
My husband just told me he thinks we’d be happier as co-parents than as spouses, and I’m gobsmacked. We have a 6yo and a 3yo - he asked to go to counseling last year but I was in a bad headspace with the pandemic. A few weeks ago I told him I was read to try counseling. He said he had been dragging his feet having this conversation with me for 5 months. I don’t know what to do next.
