For an investment bank I believe they make requirements to hold all accounts with them so that they can comply with monitoring requirements. That sounds about right. I believe managers were required to periodically review accounts for signs of any "insider information" abuse. Are there an...

i'm skeptical an employer can force you to rollover funds from a 401k plan with a previous employer. You may not have meant that, but that is how I read the OP. The previous employer was a wealth management/investment bank, and required all investment accounts to be held with them. I would assume t...

I am changing (real, post-college) jobs for the first time next month. I've never done this before, so I'm looking for advice on what to do with my old 401k. > The account has ~$70-75k, vested > This is currently my only investment account > The new employer does not require me to roll it over to th...

There are a few sites like Glassdoor.com which can help you figure out the average range for a position in a company or within a region. Sometimes it can help with these ballpark questions. It's a frustrating system. They won't give you an indication of their range up front, and you can place yourse...

"Working tomorrow for a better today!" I don't think anyone advocates a 100% head-down, work hard, no play and in 40 years make up for lost time approach. You just need to come up with more realistic requirements for future events (marriage? house? kids?) and ultimately, retirement. Give t...

Some places will let you do set up a "two for one" deal. Here's the idea: You apply for a small personal loan ($500 to $1000) with a short payback, like one or two years. You then use those funds to open a secured credit card. If you talk to someone in the loan department they can usually ...

Do you actually get the 100% tax deduction?

I don't know about where you are, but in my experience, I "make too much money" to be eligible for the deduction, and I make less than you do.

I agree with everyone above. The simplest way to think of it is from the lenders perspective. Even if you have a huge down payment for a house, and CAN pay your monthly mortgage, there's no proof on file that you WILL. With 4-6 years to go, and the fact that you're responsible with money, you can ea...

I was just checking that out... so how does this work? You load the account with a credit card, send a payment to your landlord through amazon to their amazon pay account, and then they can either spend it or ACH it to their bank? In other words, the recipient needs to also have an account set up, a...

I remember one a few years back that came to the door claiming to be selling for "the scouts." When I asked, "Do you mean the "Boy Scouts?" he said no, it was a club just called "the scouts" -- yeah right. Sounds legit to me. He was "scouting" to see how...

Essentially a Credit Union version of ING. Membership is as simple as a $10 donation to the Orphan Foundation.

They offer multiple savings accts (1.15%APY) and checking (1.10%APY). They include your first order of checks for free and use the AllPoint ATM network (like ING).

"I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential." -Mitch Hedberg I know that didn't add anything valuable to the discussion, but it's all I could think of once ...
