How to Start a Retirement Plan

Anita Good

Recent surveys found that Americans’ biggest financial fear is never being able to retire, and that 56% of Americans have less than $10,000 saved for retirement. Working for a company that doesn’t offer a retirement plan (such as a 401(k)), not being able to save money after the bills are paid, and/or simply procrastinating on getting started are commonly cited as reasons by those that are falling short or feeling financially insecure.

What to Know about Payday Loans

Greater Nevada Credit Union

Millions of people take out pay day loans (also known as cash advance and check loans) every year in the United States. Most of these loans are relatively small (i.e. $500) but charge high interest rates and fees. For example, a typical two-week payday loan with a $15 per $100 fee would have an annual percentage rate (APR) of almost 400%. Borrowers usually promise to repay the loan with their next paycheck, though sometimes the payments are made over a longer period of time.

California / Nevada Credit Union League
