If it’s helpful…
– I live in a state with state income tax
– The bonus amount is around $10k
– I plan to change employers in the next month; the new one does not match contribution until one year of employment
By that logic, it seems that as long as I contribute enough in the paycheck to max the employer contribution, there isn’t much point in overloading it for when my bonus gets paid (esp because I’m changing employers immediately following the pay cycle).
I think I’ll still do it just for kicks.
