More Than 75% of Americans Have This Retirement Concern:
"Millions of Americans rely on Social Security to stay afloat financially in retirement -- perhaps more than they should. An estimated 25% of seniors 65 and older currently depend on Social Security as their only form of retirement income, and the program supplies the majority of retirement income to as many as 65% of present beneficiaries. But while today's seniors may have the luxury of collecting their benefits in full, at least for the time being, those eligible for benefits in the future may not be as lucky."

Do I need one more credit card?
Are you being tempted by credit card offers? How do you know when you have enough credit cards?
There is no magic number of cards that you should have. However, it is wise to make sure that you do not fall for the department store cards because they offer discounts on purchases. This is only good if you plan to pay the bill in full, otherwise you are looking at a high interest rate that makes that discount not so great!
Also, if you are only making the minimum payment on several credit cards, that may be a sign that you have more debt than you need.
Chicago Patrolmen's Federal Credit Union (CPFCU)'s Financial Planning and Education Center (FPEC) is available to work with members and their families to develop signature debt repair programs to get you started and continue working with you every step of the way.

Insurance Issues that Concern Married Couples
If you are married or planning to marry, you should determine how marriage impacts your insurance needs. The lack of proper insurance protection can lead into financial ruin. If you already have disability or life insurance policies, determine whether your existing coverage is adequate and update your list of beneficiaries.
How much life insurance do you need? You should have enough life insurance to enable your family to continue the lifestyle they were accustomed to before your death. If you have children, you may want to make sure that your children's college education bills will be paid. At the very least, you will want to ensure that your family will be able to pay for burial expenses and pay off any of your debts. When you reevaluate the adequacy of your existing coverage, you should keep in mind whether or not you and your spouse intend to start a family in the near future.
While life insurance ensures that your family is financially provided for at your death, disability insurance provides your family with income if you are unable to work as a result of a serious illness or injury. Disability insurance is a necessity if you have a family that depends on you for financial support. Although disability coverage can be expensive, depending on your age and the type of work that you do, it allows you to insure your most valuable asset: the ability to earn an income. You should consider disability insurance even if your household has two wage earners since most dual-income families have expenses that rely on both incomes.
