What should be my next step as I start my new job?
« on: March 05, 2019, 09:26:43 PM »
I started a new job this week and I'm really looking forward to it. Because it's in education, I know that I have some more options for funding my retirement accounts. I find out Friday more details but I'm hoping that I get both a 457 and 403b.

Currently I have a net worth of $100 though that's because I'm tracking my payment for my scholarship program that based on my time that I teach that gets paid off and by fulfilling the commitment I'll have $18k more after 4 more years. So really right now my net worth without that is around $17,000.

Given my situation, how should I prioritize funding those accounts? I gave $10,000 as an emergency fund I'm not touching and already starting to save for future living expenses for when I move out of my parents in August.
