Chase wants me back!

November 17th, 2011 at 08:56 pm

Yeah, we got those big banks on the run. Got it in the mail today. According to card, my banking slavery can, apparently, be bought for $150.

A little bit more about the 403B consolidation - HR misspoke about "termination", only that the two accounts will be merged into one. Supposed to save money for the company because both accounts need to be audited. The match (.50:$1 up to 8% of salary) is unaffected, as is the 1.5% just for being an employee. Word, though, is that if you don't participate in the 403B, why give you the 1.5%?

Sliced up some bread to dry and get stale for stuffing. We are hosting this time; DH finished with cleaning the carpet. What's on our list to get is: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, drinks. What's on their list is bread, sides, salad, pie, cheese.

    I'd love to see Chase's marketing budget. We get something from them a couple times a week.

    If you thought taxes were complicated, I think retirement plans are 10 times as complicated. I figured they were just cutting costs and simplifying.
    There are reasons to give 1.5% to everyone, again to cut costs and simplify. For most of our smaller businesses, they just give 3% to everyone. It may sound generous, but it's all about the bottom line, saving money, and letting the owners put more in their own retirement. If they only have low-paying employees and give them all 3%, the owners can all max out, and the administration barely costs anything. I don't know what is magic about 1.5%, but probably some benefit to your type employer.

    Could be, could be. A little history: before fall of 2008, the % given just for being an employee was 5%. November of 2008, it dropped to .5%, and now its coming back to 1.5%. It might be a magic number, or might be a way stop on its way back to 5%.

    Chase has enough money without retrieving yours.

    DH gets Chase offers too, but I know that the snottiness and general unhelpfulness of a Chase teller partly inspired me to move our PTA's $200,000+ accounts to a credit union. I wonder how much money one needs to have at a Chase bank to be treated with everyday courtesy. It certainly seems to be higher than six figures.

    If you have respect for US military families and people who've saved up to buy a house yet were wrongfully arrested at Chase's bidding -- go Google "Ikenna Njoku, Auburn, Chase, arrest" you would not go back.
