401K Contributions: A Case Study

Decent Essays
Susie was telling me that I have to wait a year before I am eligible for 401K contributions. Could you tell me how this works? I am going to have to rollover my pension from the City when I leave. I can put it in my personal Roth IRA, I just wanted to know all of the possible options before I gave my financial advisor the go ahead on a rollover. Whether I am receiving a match or not also affect the amount I need to personally contribute to my Roth over this next year.

She also told me that open enrollment for the Aflac supplemental insurance was over. Will I need to get my own personal policies from somewhere else for this next year?

Lastly, on my vacation, is it three weeks with weekend (seven days) or three work weeks (five days)?
I know

    I planned on spending more on office supplies my first year and then decrease yearly but I plan to update technology aggressively every three years to keep up with the technology movement. I then factored in a price for personnel and outside labor which could include special training for staff or speakers for workshops given to students, parents and educators. My next factor includes the cost for printing and postage/shipping. This expense involves the materials that will need to be printed to create resources for my clients. Also there will need to be mailings for reminders to clients and this will be included with postage.…

    I then have that moment of unpleasant clarity; I should have known better and I should have weighed all aspects of the problem and solution. For example, my husband and I decided that he should rent a house while he worked out of town for two years. We decided to sell our travel trailer to get money for the deposit and first and last month’s rent. We had already been made aware that his job might not last the full two years but decided to rent the house for six months so that the kids and I could visit over the summer and not be crammed in a hotel room. We sold the travel trailer, he signed the papers on the rental house, and two months later he was laid off.…

    I was enrolled in three classes that were to start on January 11th, 2016. I knew I needed a student loan, but it would not be processed before my first payment needed to be made. With the holidays and personal property taxes due in December, I dropped two of the three classes I was enrolled in. At that point I felt that I must jump through multiple hoops to make college happen for me. I was determined to keep moving forward; loan papers were filled out in plenty of time, so I would not be required to pay out of pocket.…

    When you find yourself in a new situation, how do you act? I have been working in education for over 25 years but in March 2015, I registered my new business, ‘Listening to Your Voice Ltd’, because I made the conscious decision that in September when the new school year began, I would not be returning to a school and teaching. It was a brave decision for me to make as teaching was the only real career that I had known. As part of my first degree, I had worked at Guy’s Hospital as a research assistant, but after a year, I knew that I did not want to pursue a career in research. I knew, because of the decision I took, I would be on a rapid learning curve in the months ahead.…

    My whole summer 's worth of hard work has gone into that first payment and once the rest of the bill has been divided into eight months of payments starting October 5th, I will have one more scholarship that will come in and lower it but am still in the process of figuring out how I am going to cover for the rest of it. I am currently babysitting the kids of people who work at Marlboro and live close by, but that’s nothing more than pocket money, which doesn’t go into my pocket really. But this mechanism at least buys me time to find other ways, and from what I have learned in life, there’s always a way. Although I do have siblings here that are willing to help as best as they could, which is not much but at least something, I know I have to and want to be as self sufficient as…

    The cost of getting it is about $1,500.00. To me, this large sum of money will be a difficult goal to reach. In the coming month I will be on a quest to acquire a second job that I will continue with until July, when the TEFOL program starts. I hope to put away about $200.00 a month in savings to be able to afford it. The final fundamental goal I have in achieving my ultimate goal of teaching abroad, is to secure a job.…

    A great example is about my weight loss program that I have been trying for the last 20 years. I made promises to my wife that I will lose 50 pounds over the year but it never come to light. I would tell her this summer I will do this and that, go on a diet, or exercise more, but nothing really happened. In fact, I gained weight each year. Even when I was trying, the goal wasn’t realistic.…

    However, if I continued the class and failed, I would have been forced to complete a refresher class in fall and retake the class in spring. Had this happened I would have had to wait another year to graduate. My instructor suggested I drop, she stated that although it could be done, it would be very difficult. Dropping at this point meant I could keep my GPA high and be refunded some of my money. Against what had been advised, I continued forward in the course.…
