New York
Married, One Child
I am Sekou, and I am from Senegal. I am an Associate Finance Officer-P-2, step 6. I moved to New York on my second assignment three years ago. My wife does not work and we have a 6 year old daughter who is in the first grade at a private international French school here in Manhattan. After hearing about the changes to the compensation package, I was concerned that it would lower my monthly salary. However, I discovered that, with the new spouse allowance, my net pay will actually remain the same. I was also worried about expenditures for my daughter's education, which is quite expensive. In addition to tuition fees, I have to pay for transportation, as it will no longer be covered under the new education grant scheme. The new system, however, will reimburse tuition at a slightly higher level, which will end up partially compensating for other expenses like transportation. Given all the changes, I will be paying more per month for my daughter's education, but will end up saving on tuition, which is a break-even situation in the end.
