What should I do with the money in my savings account?
100% of people found this answer helpful

Pay off your loan and credit card balance (with priority towards higher interest rates) as much as possible.  If your regular income allows it, pay off the rest of the loan/credit card.  Or, rather than maximizing your contribution to your 401(k), take some of that income and pay off the remaining loan/credit card debts.  Once done, start contributing to your 401(k) to some extent.  You are not revealing your savings.  But get a meaningful financial planning done with a credible financial advisor to make sure you are systematically saving and properly investing for your future financial security.
