  • I feel I have to interject here :normally getting severance money while unemployed and then having those checks continue for two extra months after the new job pay begins would only be a concern for tax reasons. It would never be a crime to use part of the extra funds to pay for long delayed dental...

  • Zombie13 (my husband) says: thanksyou everyone (as he brushes the cat's tail away from the keyboard constantly) and he is working on the narrative document, the taxes, the raise, the comparison of the medical benefits, the numbers, etc. and will post the narrative/story once the final decision has been...

    Carmella13, info about taking extra money out of your checks vs. changing deductions is above my pay grade LOL- I have to defer to my husband!
    I am really concerned about what we might owe next year and how much the trustee will seize of his so-called raise. (it looks great on paper, not so much...

  • Carmella13 it seems like our situations are a lot alike!
    Of course our fixer-upper nightmare started 5 years ago in October, and ended in August of 2016. We filed in Feb. of 2017. If we could have held off selling for at least another year or so, we would have been able to sell at a much higher...

    Carmella 13 we are lucky in that respect! My husband can do preliminary calculations online and change the with holdings anytime!
    It's a shame your HR is not accessible easily to you. Could your tax person do the math for you? It sounds like you need a little help! ...

  • It's funny that we are in a BK13 at all because we never used CCs to shop, travel etc. , only for emergency pet medical bills, relocation costs not covered by my husband's former company, car repairs and finally what ruined us for years to come - renovating and updating a horrendous jalopy of a fixer...

    Well, with the job's pay raise and the "extra" severance checks (from March 14 -April 29) we are expecting to owe next year if we don't look at with holding more. Of course we are paying double for the new insurance and have maybe $10K in necessary dental, gyno and chiro related medical...

  • Thank you carmella13! I know you are in an 100% plan and have struggled mightily.We are currently able to pay back only about 25% so I am aware the trustee will want to raise the payment as much as he can. My husband needs 6 crowns (2 already scheduled while we have better insurance with Delta and my...

    Carmella13, I'm sorry you have such a high tax bill!
    My husband got laid off but secured a new job almost immediately - with much higher insurance (double!) and he just started last week. He is still getting severance pay until the end of April and he did get a raise (mostly eaten up by the higher...

  • Jan. Layoff with Severance, New Job in Feb.with Raise and Doubled Insurance Costs

    Well, what I posted about in December came to pass in January!
    When my husband returned to work Jan. 7, he was given two weeks notice of his severance package (scheduled to end April 29). Though the job I alluded to did not pan out, he secured another interview at LM for a different position and...
