Do a Paycheck Checkup

Every year, the IRS suggests doing what it calls a “Paycheck Checkup.” Check your withholding status if you:

  • Get married or divorced

  • Give birth to or adopt a child

  • Buy a house

  • Retire

  • File for bankruptcy

  • Get a new job or lose a job

The IRS also suggests checking on any streams of taxable income that are not subject to withholding, such as interest, dividends, capital gains, self-employment income, or retirement plan distributions. You also should check your withholding if you’ve experienced changes to your medical expenses, taxes, charitable gifts, education credits, dependent care expenses, and more. These life changes might affect your deductions or tax credits. Paycheck Checkups may help you better manage the process of filing taxes.

Rest, Relaxation, and Healthy Nutrition

Here are some tips on how to stay healthy, even during holiday trips:

  • Before heading to the airport, pack a snack box of fruits, veggies, nuts, lean proteins, and healthy bars. This way, you won’t be tempted by chips and soda while you wait for your flight.

  • Get plenty of sleep. Just like at home, it’s really important to get a good night’s sleep while traveling. Sleep helps your body reset for the next day and will help you maintain your weight.

  • Hydrate often.

  • Take your vitamins to ensure you’re at your best. A daily pill organizer can help you remember to take them, even while traveling.

There’s no reason why you must sacrifice all your hard work and healthy habits while visiting family or heading to warmer destinations during the holidays. If anything, continuing a healthy lifestyle while traveling will help you have even more fun!

On Friday, November 12th the delicious and generous Boston Market (8032 Calumet Ave.) is donating back 20% of Takeout & Pick up orders to support a great cause -- Kappa Beta Delta!

On behalf of Kappa Beta Delta you’re invited to join us and eat out, not only in support of the organization, but to show one of your Munster restaurants some love too!

We ask that you RSVP here: (even if you’re not completely sure) so Boston Market knows roughly how many orders to expect & so you have access to all the event details.

We hope you can make it, and please feel free to forward this invitation to your friends and family. Thanks in advance for your support!
