Self help: 3 steps to get out of medical debt

However, medical expenses are an important part of your financial wellness picture. Here’s what you need to know:

Behind on your mortgage? Protect yourself from mortgage relief scams.


Sometimes, unplanned events - a sudden job loss or medical expenses, for example – can impact your ability to pay the mortgage. It happens to many of us. Unfortunately, it can also leave us vulnerable to scams when looking for mortgage assistance. Here are some things you can do to protect yourself:

First, The Homeowner’s Guide to Success explains what to expect when you are late on your mortgage payments and what choices you may have.

Homeowners Guide to Success


If you are a homeowner and are struggling financially, check out this guide!  Not only does it suggest the steps to take if you are having a hard time making your mortgage payment, but it also offers resources to help you avoid foreclosure.

Additionally, the average length of a car loan was recorded at 68 months—the longest ever reported. It makes sense to look at your transportation options when planning for financial wellness.
