I appreciate everyone's advice in this bowl, it's been interesting to hear everyone's stories. I have a question of my own. My company offers a 401k (with match at 5%), Roth 401k, after tax 401k and HSA. I also have an IRA. What order and how much do you recommend I make the contributions? Thanks in advanced.

Depends on your finances - earnings, level of debt, foreseeable expenses, how much you can invest. I’d max out the HSA (triple tax benefits) and 401k to take advantage of the match and before-tax benefit. Start there and adjust to your comfort level.

This is what I have learnt recently: HSA, IRA, 401k (if under 30, Roth first, I’d not doesn’t matter much).

Is your Ira a Roth or traditional?

Thanks, but I'd like to stick with the options I currently have

I’m torn. Middle of last year my parents “separated” because of my dads drinking problem (well overdue and I’m glad my mom kicked him out). He lost his job around the same time frame due to covid and started using his 401k for alcohol and honestly idk how much he has left. J moved home to support my mom and sister, but I’m torn if I should help him out because he doesn’t have work. Half of me is like this is your fault for 20+ years and the other half is just like I’m the only person he got ATM
