    I agree with planning for divorce, I'm always on that track. Just wanted to hear your thoughts so I appreciate the feedback. I still l have a large amount of student debt to pay off which is where a good amount of my paycheck goes towards- so right now I'm only investing $3600/ year. As I move over on the pay scale each year, I plan to add to my retirement fund. I'm 29 years old, so I have some time to add to how much I invest a year. Once I get my student debt paid off, I plan to put all that I had going towards my loans into my retirement (which is a good amount). Everything you both have said has been incredible helpful. I am feeling a lot less lost and a lot less anxious. I'm leaning towards investing with Fidelity 403b. Thanks again for all the information. Very helpful! I sent this website out to a couple of schools in my district and I've had quite a but of e-mails some back to me from teachers who said it was extremely eye opening and helpful.

    Great. Thanks both of you for looking into that. This is all very helpful information and I very much appreciate the help. So my other thought is.. my husband is military and we might be moving around a lot. Which means me working in a lot of different states and districts. Is it better for me to have an IRA instead of a 403 b with all the potential moving around?

    Thank so much you for the help. I will contact my district tomorrow to stop payments. I live in California and work with Vista Unified School District. Below is the link to my list of vendors. https://www.403bcompare.com/employers/284 Also-how do I know if my district matches anything? I looked into our contract and didn't see anything for 403 b's or 457b's. Should I call them and ask? And if they they don't match anything, should I just put more money into my husbands TSP until we max it out?

    Hi! I just started a 403 b with AXA a couple of months ago, June 2019. My husband and I started talking more seriously about investing our money and have been doing our best to read up on things and then I came across this website which as been such a big eye opener.... and now my anxiety is kicking in . I went to AXA because they had an "advisor" come to my classroom saying they worked for the District and I trusted that. I am so upset to find out they have such high fees. So I need to start searching for other vendors. I am so new at all of this and my head is spinning with all this information. When looking for a new vendor.. what should exactly should I be looking for in a good vendor? Thanks! -Krystal
