Your mama done tol' ya ... to maintain a good credit score

Talking about credit scores always brings to mind the song "Blues in the Night": A credit score is certainly a worrisome thing that will lead you to sing the blues in the night. A low credit score can mean no car loan or higher interest rates for mortgage loans. As a consumer, it is hard to see a credit report with that low three-digit number on it and not feel bad about yourself.

Illinois may study "Pay It Forward" student loan program

A bill is making its way through the Illinois General Assembly that could change the way student loans work in the state. The current system is not working, lawmakers say, because students walk out of college with unwieldy debt burdens and uncertain job prospects.

As a result, attendance rates at higher educational institutions around the country skyrocketed, as millions bought in to the idea that obtaining a college degree was essential to securing a better future.

One-third of Americans struggle with medical debt

Approximately one-third of Americans reported that they have problems paying their medical debt. With this in mind, it may surprise readers that the United States Bankruptcy Code does not address medical expense debt. Sadly, medical expense is one item we often have extremely little control over when it comes to keeping our expenses in check.
