Apparently I am eligible to participate in the 401K plan at my part-time gig. I am sure some where I was told this a year ago when I started but I did not pay attention. This is how it works. You are automatically enrolled unless you opt out. I was sent a packet in the mail and threw it in the garbage because I figured it was sent by mistake. Then today I got a card in the mail informing me to return the crap that was in the package. Huh??
My question is should I participate in the 401K at the second gig?
Just some additional information:
I resigned from my full-time job a few weeks ago, and am waiting to start a new one. In the mean time I am 'full-time' at the second gig. Which is now technically my only gig.
I will definitely be keeping the part-time, now full-time gig once I start the new job in a few weeks.
Did I mention there is a match, I like free.
