New to FIRE - When you are evaluating your FI value, do you calc expected inflation and then include an estimated increase in insurance expense? Is there an easy trick to do this?

Ex. I’m 25 now and spend ~ $36,000k a year. and want to FIRE by age 50. Obviously a lot can change since I’m 25, but if I wanted to calc FI value at my same standard of living now and account for inflation and the insane cost of private health insurance for 10 years how would I do it?

Got offer to move to a late stage startup. 180k base, 120k RSUs/yr. I currently make 175k base, 30k cash bonus. Current role has excellent WLB but limited growth. Startup has huge growth potential but is riskier, I have very little insight into WLB. Benefits are comparable, both remote. I have a few questions:

- Thoughts on whether this is a good offer?
- What other questions should I be asking?
- How do taxes work on RSUs? Do I pay when they vest or when the company goes public?

Thanks!
