I currently work a temporary position with the federal gov. My husband and I have been thinking about starting a family soon. I’m concerned maternity leave may not be on the table due to the “time limited appointment”. The confusion is people’s time limited appointments keep getting extended and some have been there for 1+ year. I’m concerned about the scenario where we get pregnant and then my appointment ends… I’m also nervous about how job hopping will look because I just started in June.

So student loan no interest rates have been extended until May and I have a bonus of $23k after tax coming in this Friday. I was wondering if I should invest or pay part of my student loans off (78k total) now. Between now and May, I will continue to make my monthly payments but I am just not sure if I should invest my bonus and potentially pay more of my student loans off in May.
