Job Front

DH has a job interview scheduled for Monday. It's a phone interview. He submitted his resume on Monday and heard from them yesterday, so that's got to be a little promising right? Considering how many resumes he's submitted in the past several months and how slow to never companies are to respond, having someone jump on it that quickly inspires some hope. I guess I'm cautiously optimistic.

It's not an oil based job, but its all stuff he has the experience to do and their benefits package is phenomenal. He never heard more from the hiring company about the refinery HR he was meeting with. I don't really know if that means anything. That hiring company guy seems a little scattered and certainly isn't prompt about getting back to DH ever. Which makes me wary, despite them having a good reputation.

If he gets hired on with this company it might mean moving closer to Seattle or it could mean moving out of state or to Eastern WA. I don't know. I am certainly not stuck on living here forever, but I certainly don't want to live in Seattle with the frequent protests snarling what is already nasty traffic.

Well, I suppose I'm putting the cart before the horse. This is just a phone interview. He has to do well there to even get an in person interview. Though he does tend to interview well. Here's hoping. He'll run out of benefits pretty soon.

Does anyone know if President Trump has rescinded the part of Obamacare that requires you to purchase health insurance yet? I know part of it has been, but I've lost track of all of it. I don't know if that part will be taken out, but if it is, we are cancelling our insurance immediately. Our savings will last a lot longer without it and our medical out of pocket will be 1/3 or less of what it is now.

    That's great news on the scheduled phone interview! I don't think the requirement to have insurance has changed at this point. I did a little looking and couldn't confirm it.

    Assuming ACA is repealed, it will likely be effective for 2018, so consumers and insurance companies have an opportunity to make other arrangements. It's just too messy to repeal it immediately.

    It looks like continuous coverage will be a key factor in whatever follows. Canceling and paying the penalty this year might cause you to be uninsurable in the future.

    AR--I think you are always insurable if you start a new job that offers insurance.

    Good luck to DH!

    Depends on the insurance, Robin. I wouldn't cancel anything. Often there's a waiting period. And I have seen people who are offered insurance, but their families are not coverable because of pre-existing conditions. I hope your DH gets one of those jobs, though it doesn't seem like Seattle would suit you.

    Fingers crossed for your hubby.

    As far as ACA goes, Trump signed an executive order that has no bearing on the law itself. I'm a benfits admin and we are watching closely, if anything changes I'll update everyone here.

    Just know that employers have until March to supply you your 1095Cs. You do not need your 1095 to file your taxes, you simply need to know that months in that you and your family had coverage. If for some reason, you have filed your taxes and haven't received your documents from your employer that's okay. I recommend though once you receive verify it for accuracy, if it is correct and matches what you filed on your tax returns, you need to do nothing, but if it doesn't you may have to file an amendment. The admendment is a must unless things change. Hope this helps

    Yes, it does. Thanks, Amber.
