WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO? HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO GET AHEAD?
With the nearly half of Americans (46%) without $400 saved for emergencies and communities of color on the road to a median of zero wealth if we maintain status quo, it is imperative we do something. But what?
As we seek to do more with less, the increasing complexity of our financial world can not only be daunting, but overwhelming as well.
What is a prepaid debit card? Does it matter if it's not issued by a bank? Does overdraft protection really protect you from overdrafts? Is a car title loan a good option in a financial pinch? Are CDs a good investment?
We don't blame you if thinking about your finances causes anxiety, irritation… or tremendous boredom.
