It’s pressing to find tasks where you’re eligible for long term benefits.
- It’s never too early to beginning thinking about retirement, health care, & life insurance.
My several sets of Grandparents are a nice example of this system playing out over years of a person’s life. My mother’s parents were early planners. They were saving for their childrens’ school fund before they ever conceived a single baby. When they had their last child, they already had a growing 401k & several solid pensions between both of them. By the time they reached retirement age at 65, they had never been more comfortable financially. It was good seeing their travel photos on the internet when they were still young enough to go on trips around the world. My father’s parents weren’t love this at all. They never saved & worked weird tasks for decades. By retirement age, neither of them had pensions or retirement funds. Their marriage ended in a divorce while they were in their 60s. I took a new task with better benefits to avoid this nightmare altogether. Best of all, since this new task is in a weird state, the company is paying for our travel expenses. They’re also paying to put me in a short term new home for rent while I search for our own long term home. Since the new task is going to pay me such a high salary, I could realistically get a mortgage for a new house. I’ll just have to wait & see if I stick with the task past the 90-day probation period.
