Money Monday - How to Protect Your Financial Identity Online

Mon, Oct 9th, 2017

Money Monday - There’s no doubt that internet bank accounts are convenient, and as these accounts become more popular, understanding how to protect your financial identity online is increasingly important. Fortunately, enjoying the convenience of an Internet bank account doesn't have to mean sacrificing security. Below are a few simple steps you can take to help make sure your money and financial identity online are safe.

    • Use public computers wisely. One of the benefits of having an Internet bank account is how easy it is to access your account information. But if you use a public computer to access your account, be sure to log out of your account so nobody else can access your information.
    • Have a strong password. Use a password that's hard to guess. Experts suggest using passwords that combine numbers, letters, and upper and lowercase letters. It's usually a good idea not to use common phrases or dates, such as your name or birthday.
    • Keep track of your transactions. Reviewing your transactions online can be an important step towards keeping your money safe. Internet bank accounts make it easy to review all your transactions online. If you notice any errors, you can address them quickly.
    • Use anti-virus software. Make sure your computer has up-to-date anti-virus software. These programs protect you against malicious software and computer viruses.
    • Don't respond to suspicious emails. If you receive an email from someone you don't know who is asking for your financial information, don't respond. Do not open attachments that may come with suspicious emails.

These steps will help keep your Internet bank account safe so you can enjoy the advantages of banking online. Like us on Facebook to get the latest information about Center For Siouxland and weekly Money Monday tips.

Money Monday - Student Loan Debt

Mon, Oct 2nd, 2017

Money Monday - Currently in the United States there are 43 million Americans with student loan debt. Of those, 8 million are in default. Student loan debt is quickly becoming a crisis for many individuals and families.

While it is important to maintain regular contact with your student loan servicer, many times they don’t present all your options, or even the best option for your current financial situation. Two of the most common options for dealing with student loan debt postpone payment with either deferment or forbearance. These options provide short-term fixes but often do not address other financial issues that may demand budget counseling. Additionally, when loans are postponed, you may still be responsible for paying interest that accumulates during the period of postponement.

 Although dealing with student loan debt can seem overwhelming, help is available to walk you through the process. Center For Siouxland’s Consumer Credit Counselors can assist with understanding your options and choosing the option(s) that work best for you, including the Standard Repayment Plan which will have your loans paid off in 10 years, income-driven repayment plans, and even deferment or forbearance. Don’t know who your student loan servicer is? We can provide the contact information for your student loan servicer so that you can make the necessary changes and initiate your repayment plan. Finally, Center For Siouxland’s Consumer Credit Counselors can help you create a budget that includes your loan payment to get your loans paid off.

 For more information about student loan counseling and repayment plans contact Center For Siouxland’s Consumer Credit Counselors at 712-252-1861 x 47. You can also visit our website www.centerforsiouxland.org or find us on Facebook. To learn more about student loan repayment plan options, visit www.studentaid.ed.gov/sa/
