This or That??? hmmmm's the thing. my boss called me into her office yesterday (which is always scary when u don't know what's going on) to tell me that she is giving me another raise. YAY!! the thing is...this yr she gave me 2 options. I can either take my raise throughout the yr or i can get it all right now as a lump sum.

  • I would take the lump sum!

  • I'd take it throughout the year.

  • If you have good stability in the job (will be there long term), then throughout the year. If not, take the lump.

  • While it would be nice to have 1 lump sum- that can be too easily spent. (well for me it would be anyway). So it would probably be best to take it thruout the year.... that way you have that bit of extra $ each pay check.

  • yeah i have gr8 stability...have been here for 4 yrs. i have just come into some hard times financially and the temptation of taking it now is getting to me, cuz i could get caught up and get my head above water again.
