    It seems every year after the rush of holiday shopping has died down and we begin to relax into the New Year, there’s always a big headline about a “massive data breach” at some big retailer over the course of the holiday season. It’s always the same: if you shopped at any of these stores then it’s likely your whole credit card number, pin number, and even Social Security number were stolen by some sneaky hacker. The Federal Trade Commission estimates that nearly 9 million shoppers are hit by some sort of credit card fraud or identity theft scheme each year. The FTC further estimates that a quarter of these people are hit with credit card fraud, which occurs when a hacker gets your credit card details and starts making purchases with that information.

  • Should you invest in a 401(k), IRA, or both?

  • Protecting Your House After You Move Into a Nursing Home 

    There are a number of ways to pay for nursing home or other long-term care facilities. As discussed in our last blog, you could utilize personal resources such as savings accounts, or the costs may be covered as part of a long-term care insurance policy. But what happens if or when the money you have set aside for nursing home care runs out? It’s a very likely possibility especially given the fact that costs for long-term care in our region averages $90,000 per year. Don’t panic just yet, as there are other options available to you to help cover the costs of long-term care. In order to prepare for any likely scenario, you should contact an attorney before you even enter a long-term care facility.
