For many years, my mother taught in a sunny, spacious classroom in our neighborhood school in St. Louis. She was such a wonderful teacher that every year parents lobbied the principal to secure spots for their kids in my mom's class. I used to tell her that she should be proud that she was in such demand, but my mom abhorred the fuss. Ironically, what she did feel good about was her 403(b) retirement plan. ... [full story]

If you own a cash-value life insurance policy, you could have insurance agents pestering you to sell it. Behind the scenes, there are some powerful -- and sleazy -- reasons why some policyholders are being urged to swap their policies for cash. Many people aren't aware that they can sell their policies, but the fast-growing life settlement industry is determined to talk as many customers as it can into relinquishing their policies. Life settlement companies buy ... [full story]

Bankrate.com has released the results of their Fall 2006 Checking survey, finding that it’s the “punitive fees that are taking the biggest bites out of consumers’ wallets.” The average bounced-check, or nonsufficient-funds (NSF), fee is now at a record high of $27.40. Critics of the payday lending industry hype the “triple-digit APRs” as a reason to limit or prohibit payday loans, but the Bankrate survey results underscore what the payday lending industry has always said, ...

Can you remember the last time you received a bill for your mutual funds? Think hard. Maybe you paid it when you wrote the check to the cable company and for your credit cards. Or perhaps the invoice is still stashed in your stack of bills. Actually, don't bother looking for it, because you never received one. The fund companies automatically pull their fees out of your accounts. In fact, you pay the mutual fund managers ... [full story]

Maneuvering through the self-checkout lane at an Albertsons grocery market, Richard Krugen doesn't notice the Hershey chocolate bars and prepackaged salad displays. "I'm too busy pressing this button and that button, weighing vegetables and putting my credit card in the slot," said the officer of an El Cajon, Calif., landscaping company. Do-it-yourself registers are increasingly popular with shoppers, but customer surveys and anecdotal evidence show that the concentration they require is crimping sales of last-second grabs like ...

When Americans try to figure out their net worth, they often find that their biggest chunk of wealth isn't stashed in a bank or a brokerage account. For many of us, our true wealth can be found in our porcelain sinks, wallpapered bedrooms, outdated kitchens and scuffed hardwood floors. Our homes, particularly in states like California, New York and Florida, are often our most valuable asset. Knowing that a house has turned into a personal ... [full story]
