The 'Big C' can mean big bills and debt problems for many

There was a time in the not-too-distant past when cancer was widely referred to as "The Big C." Doctors are generally credited with developing the euphemistic reference as a way to delicately talk about conditions that very likely were going to end in patients' deaths.

Survey: Health insurance net is better, but still has holes

When it comes to topics around the water cooler weather probably tops the list. Coming in a close second in Illinois workplaces may well be the economy.

In our immediate past post, we attempted to offer some guidance on what steps to take if you find yourself facing a lawsuit over credit card debt that you owe.

What should I do if a creditor sues me?

Credit cards are a wonderful convenience.

That's not a good idea.
