Allowance and stipend were the primary sources of income for many Millennials in their college years. Everything becomes different when these young people accept their first full-time jobs.

It is essential to understand material value, regardless of what a person thinks about property. Financial wellness is influenced by what you know about your money.

It is easy for a person to discover his or her real value with the right tools. Not every benefits vendor has them, but a financial wellness plan sponsored by Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services does. We have what is necessary to help a person look at their complete financial picture. Continue reading

You might think that all debt problems arise from plastic but that is not true. Granted, people often create large credit card amounts by spending. However, these are usually controllable.

It is only natural for a person to dream of buying a house. It is something every consumer would like to have: a place to set down roots and raise a family. Homeownership is not out of the question but for some people it can be a challenging experience. This is particularly true of Millennials who may be buying their first home.

Buying a House Can Be Confusing

Countrywide Helps You Work with Bureaucrats stockfresh_3232926_woman-shouting-into-smartphone_sizeS-300x226

 

Government provides various services to people. While a few may grumble, it often happens that government assistance solves a problem. The difficulty arises when the average citizen does not quite know how to work with a public agency. There are forms to be filled out, evidence to be provided, statements to be filed, and all other sorts of paperwork. It could be a mountain of forms and very confusing. Group legal plans do not always address the need to work with government. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services, however, recognizes the importance of folks getting the right type of help.

Rules Can Make Things Difficult

Public agencies have rules and regulations which they must follow. This is in addition to legislation that specifically tells what is to be done, what deadlines must be met, and the consequences of not doing an adequate job of filing. It is where many people run into problems. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services wants to provide the best possible help. We included as one of our group legal plan options assistance dealing with government agencies. Continue reading

The Bills Are Controllable

Folks need to understand deductibles will renew annually. For example, let us suppose that a person has a deductible of $5000 and a medical procedure consisting of a surgery and physical therapy each costing $5000. Let us also suppose that the surgery is performed in 2017 and the physical therapy is scheduled for 2018. Even though the patient has paid $5000 in 2017, this person will need to pay an additional $5000 out of pocket BEFORE the insurance pay anything. It is because meeting the deductible starts all over again with the new year. This scenario is not fiction; it happens all the time. People run into serious deductible debt when medical procedures span more than one year.

The bills can mount up and the providers expect to be paid. Failure to meet the obligations can result in collection agencies knocking on the door. Employers should help their staff with medical bills. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services has a financial wellness plan that provides needed assistance. Continue reading

Decision-makers can take the opportunity of a new year to insist on better service. Benefits offered to employees should not only solve problems, but provides necessary assistance that makes all the effort convenient for employees.

Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services strongly feels that it is how we provide help that determines the quality of the benefits we offer.

Payments can be met spider-pocket-189x300

 

Employees generally like the employer-sponsored group health insurance. They appreciate the assistance given with medical expenses, particularly catastrophic bills. Employees grumble, however, about the deductibles. The deductibles in most employer-sponsored group health insurance policies have been rising steadily over the last few years. They’re at a point where the deductible can be a threat to financial wellness.

Deductibles Can Grow Medical Debt

An employee must use all the deductible before the full health benefit can be utilized. It is why those who file for bankruptcy due to medical debt ordinarily have health insurance; the deductible stands in the way of the health benefit. Continue reading

The government can confuse people. Bureaucracies are both national, state, and local. You may have to deal with one and not the other two or, all three at the same time. The average employee is going to find all this frustrating. Many group legal plans do not bother with helping but Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services does. Our group legal plan benefits include assistance with government agencies.

Your tax dollars fund various services through public agencies. These organizations require certain types of information. What can get confusing is what is needed by a federal agency, may be entirely different than what is requested by a local municipality. On top of everything else, some deadlines need to be met. The wrong information will probably result in an application returned to the individual for corrections. It creates an administrative delay that might end up with a missed deadline. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services offer group legal plan benefits for organizations. Our attorneys provide help with those public agencies. Continue reading

It is possible that the new tax reforms will change the housing industry. Changes in tax deductions can cause more people to rent, causing the price of housing to drop. It means that the house is no longer a financial investment but a home. It can cause a change in attitude for a lot of people because they may have to hold onto a house longer than they originally thought. Purchase of a house, therefore, becomes a long-term investment.

There are mountains of paperwork and procedures involved in the purchase. Not everybody understands how to qualify for a loan, but it is a very important part of the financial wellness issue. It also is true that some of the actors in the home investment process are not committed to helping people. We provide education to help homebuyer be a smart shopper. Continue reading
