You can increase your emergency fund by investing in a Roth IRA (if eligible) if you don't feel 2 - 3 months provides enough cushion. That way you don't have too much idle cash. I personally like Vanguard ETFs like VTI or VOO (both are stock index funds). You may consider retirement date funds...

Yes, rollover into your own IRA. You will have many more investment options than an employer plan plus access to investments with cheaper fees. Sounds like you should work on building up an emergency fund for the moments where it does hit the fan...

He doesn't appear to suffer any consequences for his actions and/or inaction as he is bailed out by your parents. Your parent's love is actually inhibiting his ability to grow into a financial responsible adult. This is happening more and more as children don't want to grow up and the parents are...

re: Quitting a job? - kaaj24
I would suggest being positive about your experience and focus you conversation on your upcoming opportunity. Exit interview "themes" with HR are discussed with department heads so it is never 100% confidential. It may help you feel better to get items off your chest during an exit interview........

re: What is your target savings and age for retirement? - kaaj24
SS will be around for us when we retire, I'm 40. There are too many people that haven't saved to get rid off it. Will benefits be less and social security withholdings thresholds and rates be higher in the future, very likely. Polling people on a money talk board is not a representative sample of...

re: What's Merrill-Lynch's rep in terms of personal wealth mgmt? - kaaj24
As others have stated they charge a fee for managing your money. For some investors this may make sense if you don't have knowledge, interest in financial matters, and/or time. Sometimes you have to spend money to make money. My only recommendation would be to meet with a couple advisors at a cou...

re: Business start up. Investors vs. borrowing - kaaj24

re: Restaurants on your personal 'blacklist'. - kaaj24
I second Borgne. Wife and I went there last December. Our waiter walked up to us after we were seated and asked us what we wanted to order. No small talk, no personality, no selling. Didn't ask us about drinks, appetizers, etc. Felt like I was at Denny's. I will never go back....
