What Every New College Grad Needs To Know About Repaying Student Loans

August 13, 2015
Falling behind on your student loans is one of the worst financial mistakes you can ever make. The penalties and fees if you fall behind, and into default, can add thousands of dollars to your bill. And there’s pretty much no way to escape this obligation. Student loans are nearly impossible to get discharged in bankruptcy court.

The Biggest Retirement Planning Mistake

July 16, 2015
A recent report that studied the 401(k) savings habits of millions of workers found that one in four of you are not contributing enough to your account to qualify for your employer’s maximum match. The average annual amount of money left on the table is more than $1,300 a year. That is nuts.
