Over the past four or so decades we have seen a huge increase in the number of women working in paying jobs outside the home.

On this podcast, Suze gives us a lesson on the history of Labor Day in the U.S. and why it’s so important to pause for a few moments and remember those workers who paved the way.
In this podcast, Suze and KT share special stories about their dads. These great and important memories shed some light on how they became the successful women they are today!
I recently polled users on what was their biggest money worry. Unemployment was the top concern. I can’t say I am surprised, given the millions of people who have recently lost a job due to the cur
The rapid meltdown in global investments as the economic severity of the coronavirus takes hold is indeed unsettling.
A recent survey of employers says they expect the typical raise next year to be around 3%. I hope you are the rock star who lands an even bigger pay increase. But, 3% is good when you consider that th
Fall is typically when employers announce any benefit plan changes for the coming year and ask employees to review their coverage and request any coverage changes.
It’s been more than a decade since the U.S. economy fell into a recession. That’s a long time ago. But I know for many of you, far from forgotten, as the Great Recession that lasted from late 2007 to
A new study that looked at the employment and pay patterns for people once they turn 50 should be a wake-up call for anyone approaching or in their 50s. About half of the people in the study suffe
An updated version of my book Women & Money will be published next month. Why return to the topic?
According to a national survey, more than half of Americans don’t use all their vacation days. I think that’s a bad career move. Vacations aren’t an indulgence, they are a necessity.
I am on the record that for anyone worried about if they will have enough money to live in retirement, planning to work longer can be a big help.
I know many of you expect the new tax laws will reduce your federal tax burden. But I have to tell you that there is a risk that when you file your 2018 tax return in early 2019 you could find you
When you land a new job you are going to be totally focused on making a great first impression. But I also want you to make sure you take care of your financial future by steering clear of two all-too-common retirement mistakes.
Given the looooong hours I know you put into your work, it seems obvious that you should get plenty of satisfaction from all that work. Yet according to Gallup less than one-third of workers are “involved in, enthusiastic about and committed to their work and workplace.”
A recent survey reports that 52% of workers who were eligible for paid vacation last year, didn’t use all their available time off.
If you have recently moved to a new job, or one of your 2017 resolutions is to make a move, I want you to be super smart with how you handle your retirement savings account you built at your old job.
The fall open enrollment period is just around the corner. If you’re like most people you’ll give it little attention and just stick with whatever you have this year. Big mistake. I want you to take the time to carefully comb through the details of every benefit and make sure you are making the best choices that will help build security in 2017 and beyond.
Young adults are making a big mistake with their finances. Survey after survey reports that most millennials do not have a credit card. I am wholeheartedly on board with preferring a debit card. But everyone needs to also have a credit card and use it responsibly.
I know you probably can compile a very long list of things you’d rather do than tackle your 2015 tax returns. But please listen to me: procrastination could cost you big time this year, if you anticipate you will be receiving a refund.
I don’t know about you, but if I see or hear of one more survey about how panicked most Americans are about their retirement, I will scream. That we have a national fear of retirement preparedness is abundantly clear. What we need now are less surveys and more advice on how to conquer retirement fears. Here are my key steps to start down your road to retirement financial freedom.
As year-end approaches, I know that’s when plenty of you will be sitting down with your manager for a year-end review. I sure hope there’s a pay raise involved. Given how stingy raises have been since the Great Recession, I want to make sure that you don’t blow it. Literally.
Attention all college freshman, and returning students! If you have taken out an unsubsidized federal Stafford loan to help pay for college, I am betting you are making a big financial
Congress’ shenanigans to shut down the government for 16 days this month has many Americans rightfully concerned about their personal finances.“If you don’t want to be affected by the actions—or lack of actions—in Washington, you and you alone are going to have to save yourself,” insists Suze Orman.
The recent rise in housing prices and the decrease in supply in certain parts of the country have some people willing to spend every nickel they have to get into the market now. But Suze Orman warns hopeful homebuyers not to be hasty and end up house poor.
