Some *unconfirmed* good news

June 13th, 2014 at 12:45 pm

I am officially an intermediate analyst!! Woohoo Smile

The unconfirmed part comes in regards to pay. Any potential increases go into effect next Friday (our next payday), so we should find out early next week what, if any, changes in salary we should expect.

...However, a little birdie just told me that she thinks I will be very happy with result.

Since I budget based on my current salary, any increase first goes to maximizing my 401K. I know, I know, who doesn't get their full company match?!?!? Well, me, but mostly because I read it wrong. It's 50% of your contribution up to 4% of your salary. I started myself at 6% thinking it was over 4, but still allowed me to cover my other bills, but then I realized I need to contribute 8% to get the 4% company match. Lesson learned: always read AND UNDERSTAND the fine print...If there's more in my take home pay after the 401K increase, that will be split 50/50 between debt (the car which is on track to be paid off in October) and Vegas (Sept/Oct). All other budget categories will stay the same.

Fingers crossed for some good news that I can deliver with certainty and concrete numbers next week!!
