Anyone else starting to feel nervous about the extra $600/week unemployment going away? Also, is it just me or does it seem stupidly misguided that the Senate/WH prefer to send another stimulus check instead of extending unemployment benefits? Stimulus checks go to a much smaller subset of the population and aren't necessarily going to help those impacted by COVID layoffs. Not to mention the argument that it disincentivizes people going back to work is dumb when there are no jobs to return to.

I am just enrolling in 401k, what does it mean to max out 401k contribution? I googled and it says max contribution is 19k, so should I do 19k / my salary and contribute that %?
How do I retire at 45? Give me all your tips.
Just got a big raise (50%+) starting July 1st that is going to move me out of income limits for direct Roth IRA contributions (prior to raise was under the limit) even with maxed pretax 401k and HSA - however I am already halfway through contributions ($3000). What options do I have to address these excess contributions?
As a first generation college graduate, first one to land a job in Corp. America, there’s so much that I wasn’t prepared for like 401k, investing, along with other things that increase your TC that aren’t bonuses or your base salary or how to diversify your income. I’m 25 and I feel like there is SO much I still don’t know. Any good book recommendations/youtubers/podcasts that helps navigate this?
We’ve reached peak “use the dollar-bill shooting guns” for comedic effect. I know. It’s funny. But when 2 spots have the same gag in the same break it’s time to retire it...
Anyone decide not to BF right out the gate? Please no judgement I have made no decision yet. Halfway through pregnancy and already tired of sharing my body, and husband and I want to share feeding duty equally (ie not with me pumping / being attached to baby). I realize there are significant benefits to BF which I wouldn’t take lightly in the decision just hoped to hear from anyone else who opted out from the start.
How can I not work to live - I want 10m as fast as possible and go retire. Working for another 30 years sounds miserable

Saw an email today about the Pension and click on the link. Saw I have some money in there. I’m 100% vested. I was wondering how does the Pension work? If I decide to leave do i get a check?
Heading into benefits open enrollment and beginning to receive current provider renewal percentage increases (medical and dental) as well as market offers from other providers. Curious what other employers have experienced and hoping to receive successful negotiating techniques. My company is too small to receive claims experience data from the provider. What % increase did you see for a small to mid size company?
I have 50k in my 401k account and I am planning to move back to India by next year, I plan to be vested in the 401k for long term, hopefully till maturity. In that case, when I withdraw my 401k amount after 30 years will I be liable to pay taxes in India or USA?and will it make sense to convert the 401k to roth IRA?
My husband and I are looking to buy our first home. We live in HCOL, so the loan is most likely going to be jumbo. In your experience, is it better to go with bigger banks or smaller lenders for jumbo loans? We have enough cash to put 20% down, but would prefer not to do that and go with 15% down instead - do jumbos typically go with 15% down and no PMI? We also have an option to borrow from 401k or to sell 1/3 of our investments to raise cash if PMI is too high. What would you do? Any advice?
Do you spend your entire per diem? Or do you prefer low-cost food options (chipotle for example) and save the rest of the per diem?
Is your organization planning to require employees be vaccinated? I understand why management wants this but concerned about losing good employees because they don’t believe in vaccination or are wanting to wait until more people have been vaccinated to see if there are issues with it. I’m also concerned with moral if we require this. Employees may get it to keep there job but hold on to some bitterness or develop anxiety over it. Am I being too soft or over analyzing?
I am thinking of switch from plaintiff side work to defense work in employment litigation. Has anyone made this switch? Did you regret? We’re billable hours too much to handle? More in comments.

Hope it’s ok to share this here — figured we all love dogs and might have some Alaska miles going stale 💜
Feeling frustrated with my career progression after being a senior planner for +2.5 years. Trying to change careers but that's not going well and I can't seem to land a manager position in media. :/
Long post that’s going to spill into the comments so please bear with me 😅 Anyone having a problem with being overlooked on their team? I worked on implementing a new system, recruiting app teams to test it out, & creating a thorough guide to help people learn it. Back to back meetings with clients & different teams; I was dedicated to this project for months. My coworker added a 2-pg FAQ section & essentially got credit for doing everything even after I shared my contributions to my supervisor.
