Ep 51: Mailbag – Job Offer, Taxes, and Wedding Budgets

Should you take a job with a higher salary but worse health insurance? Is there a way to not owe the IRS so much in taxes each year? These are a few of the mailbag questions we’re answering on today’s show.



On this episode of The Retirement Huddle podcast, we’re answering your mailbag questions. Let’s jump into it.

Charles was offered a new job with a higher salary, but the health insurance isn’t nearly as good. If he leaves, he will also lose a portion of his 401k that he’s not vested in. How can he make this career decision?

The fact that Charles is considering all the options is very wise. We need to do some math and address the emotional side of this question.

The new job pays more, but maybe you’ll have to work more hours or have a worse work-life balance. We don’t know the answer to that.

As advisors, we can give you advice and help you make a good career decision.
