28 yoe - Is my 401k too heavy on total stock/s&p500 if I decide to change allocation to 50% VFIAX, 40% VTSAX and 10% International total mrkt? Currently my allocation is 50% S&P, 30% Total stock, 10% International and 10% Bonds. Realized bond is making almost no money so thinking of switching moving forward. Outside of 401K, I auto-invest $500 in S&P500 every week. Am I going too heavy on one index?😭
If I start a new job this month and contributed 17k to my Big4 401k this year, do I just tell the new 401k how much % to take from each pay check to hit 2500 from now till Jan? How will they be able to know if I accidentally go over?

I love my workplace and team, and this place sets me up for the career trajectory I want.

Despite only having 8 months of programmatic and some media buying down, I was offered a senior role, that I don't feel I know enough to be effective at. Am I overthinking this?

Need advice: I have a young child who’s father has been mostly absent. Sadly, he passed last month and just found out he did have a life insurance policy with my child as the beneficiary.

I quite literally know nothing about these types of payouts and the rules associated with them.

Sooooo I am trying to figure out if I should put 6k into a Roth IRA or a traditional IRA for 2022. I have the money now. Currently, I am in the 22% tax bracket and can contribute to Roth IRA. However, I am engaged to my fiancée. The wedding is currently set for 2023, but we are considering doing a courthouse wedding late December for tax benefits. He is in the 35% tax bracket, and if we are married at year end there would be too much 2022 income for a Roth. Continued…
