Thinking about getting a part time masters, but I’m unfamiliar with the financial aid process. What are the best opportunities to have education subsidized? I do have a TC of 130K, which I recognize puts me in a privileged position, but college is still terribly expensive and every bit would help.

You do not qualify for financial aid. You may be eligible for scholarships or assistance from your company if there’s some type of program available. But you’d need to google and research that yourself.

You qualify to get financial aid through fafsa. You won’t get any grants but you will get financial aid loan options via FAFSA

How necessary is this masters and will it exponentially impact your future earning potential or future job prospects? You’re making $130k, with the masters can you get to $200k in a few years? You should do a cost benefit analysis and if you will need to take out loans really consider if it’s worth it. Have you also looked into if your current employer would also pay for some of the tuti on costs?

Can someone help me understand how backdoor Roth works in my situation?

I contribute the $19.5K max to a 401K each year. Would backdoor Roth be (A) the ability to roll $6K of that $19.5K into a Roth? or (B) an incremental $6K that I could contribute to a separate IRA then backdoor into a Roth?

Asked another way, does backdoor Roth allow me to actually contribute $25.5K each year, or does it just allow $6K of my $19.5K contribution to build in a Roth?

Thanks!
