Heard from the CO of the S.A.B that they wouldnt be promoting Lt until till April or May. No clue where he got the info. He stated Pcts were short Lt and thats why they want people to have 10 months in rank before even accepting paperwork.

Supervisory Assignment Board. Prior to last month you were able to put Your application in with six months in rank. Now they want 10 months in rank before even accepting application. The co said the changes were made because lack of Lt in Pct and lack of an active list For Sgts and Lts. He said first class of Lt would be April or May.

Some of us been there and done that already.  Change is good.

Besides, if your significant other works, you will be hoisted into another tax bracket.... Another thing to think about.  More taxes.

 Or you can lower your taxable income by increasing your defer comp contribution (37k total for 2018) therefore keeping you in the same tax bracket.  


 Are you suggesting the 401k pretax or Roth? Also, which is better, the 401k Roth or 457 roth

Imo ithp > 50% > 457 pre tax > 401 pre tax

457 Roth or pre tax is always better than 401k. Ultimately, they are almost the same thing with the main difference being  the 401k you can't touch until 59 unless you want to pay a penalty. With the 457 you can touch as soon as you retire without penalty.

Pretty much on point.  But some would argue that the ability to reduce your taxable income with pretax 457 and 401k and invest simultaneously, especially since we are so highly taxed, can save thousands in taxes every year dependant on how much you're putting in, and this makes it comparable to the ITHP/50%.

 

They're all great and play a different role as an asset in your working years and planned retirement.

 Would have to disagree.  Ithp/50 is a guaranteed 8.25% return on your money compared to the volatility of the market.  Nevertheless, 457 and 401 are good buckets to continue retirement savings.

Late march?! Try more like may or even june! I know it sounds crazy but dcas hasnt even reached out to the fit unit to add those points. Once they do we will get a clearer picture as to when the list will be established. Looks like the 10-month wait for the sgt exam will be the same for us. 10 months is the new 6 months.
