Determine whether or not to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy

Health insurance costs in Florida and around the country are skyrocketing. In fact, many consumers are forced to be uninsured now because it is difficult to afford the monthly premiums. While premiums are often priced out of reach for many, the alternative is equally frightening. A serious accident or illness could quickly deplete the assets of an uninsured person and create a financial disaster. In fact, many people who file either Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy do so as a result of staggering medical bills.

Save more for retirement by reducing credit card debt

Many of those in the workforce in Florida and throughout the country often dream of the day they can quit their jobs and retire. However, a growing number of employees feel less confident about their future ability to leave the working world someday. In a recent survey by a national brokerage firm, the results showed that members of a particular demographic don't believe they will ever be able to fully retire. While there are many contributing factors, one reason often cited is mounting credit card debt.

Start the new year by tackling credit card debt

Many Florida residents and others around the country often make New Year's Resolutions at the beginning of each year. These resolutions frequently involve financial goals. While some focus on saving more for their retirement or establishing an emergency fund, experts recommend one activity that can potentially have the greatest impact on a person's finances. Tackling credit card debt and having the cards work favorably is a valuable place to start in the new year or anytime.
