Keeping up with your credit report is an important part of making sure that your finances are in proper order. However, the cost of looking at your credit report all the time can start to add up.

Based on the early results, it appears that Obamacare will have the exact opposite effect on health insurance premiums than what was predicted or expected – it looks as if premiums are actually going to be higher under the plan than what they were before.
What does Obamacare have to do with life insurance? Unfortunately, maybe more than we think. Obamacare, more formally known as the Affordable Care Act, is changing a lot about health insurance, as well as the financial realities associated with it.

I was 12 or 13 when my mom opened a joint checking account with me, and the habits I developed under my mom’s watchful eye have benefited me for nearly two decades. So, now I’m trying to decide when I should help my son open a checking account.

You jeopardize your retirement and they get stuck in a vicious cycle of financial dependency. Most of the people I know who have loaned money to kids never see a dime in return. That's just sad for both parties.
I'm generally against loaning money to family - including the kids. Instead, I recommend they find other resources. But sometimes lending money to kids can be a win-win. At the very least, it doesn't have to be a lose-lose....

The less money to have saved for retirement, the more life insurance you will likely need. There are several reasons why this is true.
Millions of people are moving toward retirement with nowhere near as much in retirement savings as they will need to provide for a comfortable retirement. While that creates an obvious dilemma for anyone who really wants to retire at the

Men are considered to be a higher risk to life insurance companies that women are. And there are more than a few reasons why that’s true.
Look on almost any life insurance premium chart, and one thing you will notice almost immediately is that life insurance is more expensive for men than for women. There are several reasons for this, and they all have to do
