[quote]Are you new to the company? If so, maybe somebody got your plan eligibility date screwed up and started your 401k contributions before you were eligible to join the plan. [/quote]

The HCE rules you mention probably wouldn't hit him until next year, if applicable, since the test is backward looking. And he has only been with the company for a few months so it is unlikely he has exceeded that threshold already this year.
Sounds more like a systemic problem to me, especially...

Because all of the changes you mentioned took place [u]well after [/u] the masses (fans) called them out as needing to be changed.
It's really just that simple.
There is never any guarantee the changes will work, but Miles is often the last to react. Many of the changes HAVE worked; thus, the...
| Money Talk|| re: Lump Sum Vs Dollar Cost Averaging - Dusty Bottoms on 9/5/14 at 10:37 am|
You are dollar cost averaging at once per year now. I guess the question is frequency. The driving concept of DCA is that more often is better. I personally $458.33 once per month. My Roth is also Vanguard and is comprised of Total Stock, Total Bond, and Total Int'l Stock. As I get older, I wil...

However you choose to season and boil them, do it in bulk. As in get a 20-30 lb bag of green peanuts and cook them in 1-2 batches in the biggest boiling pot you have.
Fill gallon bags and freeze what you cannot eat in a few days. Nothing beats boiled peanuts anytime you want. When thawed, they...
