Investing Basics: Certificate of Deposit

If you’re in a place where you can put your money to work for a period of at least 6 months without needing to tap into that stash then opening up a certificate of deposit could be your a great option.

Investing Basics: Money Market Account

Because money market accounts have slightly higher requirements on minimum balances than savings, you can earn higher interest on your saved money.

A typical savings account is your simplest form of earning some interest on your money.

Which Debt Should Students Get Rid of First?

Assuming that recent graduates have various debt balances including student loans, car loans and credit card loans, tackling the lowest balance debt first can help them score quick wins.

Federal Student Load Debt & Repayment Plans

When paying back student load debt, remember that, while Graduate Repayment Plan payments can be extended up to 10 years, and Extended Repayment Plan payments may be extended up to 25 years, you end up paying more in the end if you pay less up front.

Building Good Credit History for Students

Credit history is critical when renting an apartment, applying for utilities, cable TV, or even a cell phone plan. Help your student learn to pay debts on time and establish good credit.
