    SSDI and HSA health plan

    I am waiting for a check! lol. That's the way the 401(k) rollover into an IRA ended up, but it will be a FBO check. Turns out I'm not eligible for an IRA to HSA rollover anyway. The HSA/high deductible plan needs to be in effect for a 12 month period for me to reap a tax free contribution...

    SSDI and HSA health plan

    Thanks for the replies. I am in the process of rolling over my 401(k) into an IRA, just waiting for the check to arrive, so I mis spoke(or typed) mentioning the 401(k), the money would actually come out of the IRA.

    Family friend attorney

    Because I have always tried to be a constant, stable and supportive role model in her life, a position her parents struggled with. For the most part I am staying out of it, my niece is a grown woman, but my sister kept asking me to meet the attorney and and offer my opinion because she and...

    Family friend attorney

    Yes she does. I have been involved a bit with the process and have sat down with her attorney a couple of times. He seems to stay on top of things but seems reactive as opposed to proactive, but in his defense I know my niece has tried to minimize his fees.

    Family friend attorney

    What is the name of your state? Ohio. Can an attorney represent a family member or friend for free and continually keep another party buried in letigation causing financial hardship or ruin? Or is there legal or ethical rules forbidding that practice?

    10 year old with a pellet gun outside non display for safety

    I got a different thought about the original post. I thought "displayed for safety" might be referring to the red/orange band on the end of toy guns indenifing them as toys. Yes the title said "pellet gun" but I wondered if the OP was thinking of a pellet gun as a toy (which it's not) or...

    Dog seized by original owner

    My bet is the breeder is afraid her reputation will be harmed if word gets out part of her breeding line is not genetically perfect. I'm not saying the dogs cancer is genetic but it still will reflect badly on that line. Getting the dog back allows the breeder to deal with the situation in her...

    Tax question regarding SSDI

    Maybe I misunderstood what I have read then. I don't know how to post a link but here's a cut and paste I pulled from a Google search. ""If you are single and you make more than $34,000 (or married and make more than $44,000), 85% of your benefits could be taxed. If your disability benefits...
