| Pelicans Talk|| re: Pelicans Focus Group: Follow up included. - MikeD on 11/20/13 at 8:59 pm|
Insane idea here but they could price tickets at one price if you go and a different price if you don't go.
For example, you can get club seats in upper rows of middle two sections for $96 each. What if they sold the tickets for $96 but then would give $20 for showing up to the game? This cou...

They should be giving away tons of tickets to varous charities and groups at this point like schools, businesses, colleges, etc. to get people in the stands.
| Money Talk|| re: Roth IRA Contributions - MikeD on 11/13/13 at 8:27 pm|
Yeah that's correct. Filing single had me maxed out at 127k.
So reading a little more... it seems to me that I can max out 401k ($15,500 or whatever it is), contribute $5,500 to traditional IRA (not deductible) and the convert the traditional to Roth. Does this sound right?
| Money Talk|| re: Roth IRA Contributions - MikeD on 11/12/13 at 10:00 pm|
Yes I am lucky.
I don't have another IRA. Had a Roth for last few years until last year when I cracked limit. Previously I was hitting max in my Roth each year. Would it be better to not max my 401k, contribute 5k to IRA and then convert?
My thinking is, it's better to pay taxes now and g...
| Money Talk|| Roth IRA Contributions - MikeD on 11/12/13 at 9:29 pm|
I was not allowed to contribute to my Roth IRA last year due to exceeding income limits. Single, no kids. I max out the company 401k and defer enough to hit IRS max on this as well.
Is there a way to convert either my 401k or another IRA to get allowable contribution into my Roth account?...

Definitely should have reported it right away or not at all. You know it is possible to roll an ankle outside of work right? Once you left work, it should have been "I was walking down the stairs and slipped."
I can't figure out why on earth you would tell the doctor you did it at work and then...
