Question, photo shows my current 401k investments & balances - should I roll my Vanguard Target 2055 Trust into a Roth IRA? Would there be any advantages to doing that? Or should I roll it into the S&P 500 Index Trust? Both balances are Roth 401k contributions if that helps. My income is also too high to contribute to a Roth IRA. TIA.
Should I be worried that my 401k YTD return is only 4.13%? Not sure how accurate that number is, if it is....pls help 🥲
Do you all feel that the Health Insurance choice is actually all the same? The coverage is absolutely copy and paste for Bronze to Platinum and the deductible/copay is very similar. I just don’t understand why we have the illusion of “choice” if the offer is the same and it is really bad (in our case). Going from $61 per paycheck for 2.5k deductible 75% copay to $500+ per paycheck with 500 deductible 85% copay. Other firms have better health insurance?

I’m looking for assistance on building your own portfolio in my traditional 401K. I’ve been reading that it’s important to choose funds with low expense ratios. Also, that it is recommended to have at least one US stock, international stock , and bond. I am 24yo so ideally, I’d want to allocate 90%-100% to stocks and 0%-10% to the bond. Any other things I should be looking at?

Salary in interview. I was asked about my salary in an interview at MBB. Say I was currently receiving 70k fixed + 22k bonus. I told them "my salary is 100K including bonus". Can this little round off hurt later? The interviewer was basically asking me how much I am expecting and I told him industry standards. Kept pursuing it. In end he said just give me sense of your current salary and so I rounded off.

I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting).
