For the past five years, Americans have experienced a “perfect storm” of slow economic growth, wage and benefit losses, a sluggish housing market, and high unemployment rates. Tough economic times can result in individuals and families living on the financial edge. Topics covered in this 90-minute webinar include a description of the “financial edge” and how people get there by being pushed or pulled; the concept of living “paycheck to paycheck;” low U.S. savings rates; strategies to deal with unemployment; public health insurance; food assistance; energy assistance; telephone assistance; wage garnishment, foreclosure, credit counseling; individual development accounts (IDAs); disaster assistance; and frauds and scams.
