Appreciate the community-wide data collection but also seems overly simplistic. E.g. some people roll 401ks to IRAs when leave their employer, thereby drastically understating current 401k balance

Yes!

I can't access the survey. But a few other things that impact this are your vested balance. I've jumped a few time and have never been fully vested. I have tens of thousands of dollars of invested funds that the companies have not removed yet (far less than the salary increases over the years).

Also, I don't know the goal of this, but balance is relative to salary and years in workforce. If I'm 30 and was only making up to $60k until 29 when I made $140k after a 1.5 year MBA hiatus, my balance couldn't be anywhere near that of someone who started at $80k and ended at $140k by 30.

If we have good, free healthcare through spouse’s job (military), is it still worth it to pay for a high deductible plan through my job to get the benefit of an HSA?

For context, we are a family of three. The cost of the health care plan just for myself would be $20/paycheck every two weeks (or about $520/year). Cost to add husband or child to the plan is over $200/paycheck (so I know that’s not an option).

My thought is it’s not worth it to pay for the plan, but is there another pt of view?

Already maxed out my Roth IRA, my company matches the first $2,000 of my 401 K at 100% then the next 1,000$ at 50%. I have recently hit that $3,000, my company offers a super Roth strategy (mega backdoor Roth), with the ability to automatically convert each contribution to said Roth. Any suggestions would be much appreciated on whether I should begin with this strategy, or max out the unmatched portion of my 401k first. (Ideally I’d hope to do both) Thanks.
